Dear Parent(s) and/or Guardian(s):
Week two is in the books and it is great to see and feel that the heat has passed. This week I had the opportunity to talk with each grade level about the handbook, expectations for the year, and just take a moment to answer their questions or concerns. It is a great chance to see each class together and their unique dynamic they bring to the building. We truly have an amazing student body, from 7th to Seniors, and I look forward to working with them throughout this school year and watching their development, spiritually, academically, and socially.
Below is a little information about a Food Drive, Picture Day, 2005 Football Recognition, T-Shirt Fundraisers, and Jostens.
Please refer to http://delphosstjohns.org/hs-calendar/ for the most up-to-date information about the happenings taking place in the Junior High and High School.
For Athletic Information please follow this link http://delphosstjohns.org/sports-calendar/
Jostens will be at school on Friday to begin the ordering process for Seniors and their Graduation items. They will also be here to talk with the Freshman about ordering a Class Ring.
If you son or daughter will not be in school, please have them stop in the office to pick-up any information they may have missed.
