December 12th Newsletter

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

Another productive and successful week has concluded here at St. John’s. The money stall that the Junior High/High School have been participating in last week and this week has raised over $1,800 to help support the Delphos Community Christmas Project. Today students have also brought in over 300 toys to be distributed amongst our Delphos families in need this Christmas Season. All the while the students had the opportunity to celebrate the Immaculate Conception on Monday, while still celebrating their School Mass on Wednesday.

A special congratulations to Mrs. Stiffey and the Scholastic Bowl Team on finishing third in the MAC Tournament.  I would also like to congratulate Samantha Stevenson who was recognized as the Optimist Club Student of the Month for December.
