April 24th Newsletter

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

We experienced another great week here at St. John’s, as the number of weeks continues to dwindle as the end of the year quickly approaches. This week our Freshmen and Seniors had the privilege of listening to an Organ Donation Presentation, and how their choice could so many.

We also celebrated 89 students who earned the Academic Honor Roll, with a G.P.A. of 3.5 or higher, in the first three quarters of the school year, with a luncheon, catered by Dick’s Steak House. This is just a small token of our appreciation for their hard work this school year. A special thank you to Mr. Bockey and the National Honor Society for making this event possible.

Congratulations to Richard Cocuzza, who was selected by his teachers as the Optimist Student of the Month, for April.  This honor is bestowed upon one student from each grade (9 to 12) throughout the school year.  Congratulations again to Richard on this honor.

This weekend will mark the Annual Benefit Auction, celebrating 100 years of St. John’s Graduates.  This is a wonderful event that is months in the making, with the proceeds benefiting our school and students.  I would just like to thank everyone that works to make this event possible, and for all your generous support in helping our students have the best educational opportunities possible.

A few of the things that are happening here in the future are outlined in the newsletter below. Including, School Musical, Junior Parent Information, Scholarship/Tuition Assistance Opportunity, Prom Information, Yearbook Orders, and Personnel Changes. If any of these interest you and I hope they do, please keep reading for more information.
