November 5th Newsletter

Dear Parent(s)/Guardians(s) and Students:

The First Quarter has concluded and we are now on to the Second.  A short week, but a nice break for both students and teachers.

A big thank you to Dr. John Wood, and his Mission Musicians Rachel Ann and Cassandra, for the Parish Mission they conducted this past week, for both the Parishioners and Students.  Dr. Wood shared his message of becoming a saint, and how it is our choice to bring the saint within us all out for everyone, including ourselves, to benefit from.  As he spoke with the students he shared the message of identity crisis, and how so often the person we are trying to be is not the true self of who we actually are.  That we do not need to change the world, but take the steps necessary to change how we think, live, act, and care for ourselves and one another.

If you have a chance please visit his website and continue to share his message with one another.

Below is a little information about the Second Street Crosswalk, Youth Group, Scholarship Opportunity, Spirit Wear Sale, Movie Night, and a Job Opening.

Weekly Calendar
Please refer to 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

Second Street Entrance Crosswalk

At this time we are asking all students and parents not to use the Second Street Crosswalk across from Hickey-Morris Insurance, to begin to use the Crosswalks to the East End Entrance of the Junior High/High School or at the corner of Second and Pierce Streets, if crossing Second Street.  (from the second street doors of the Junior High/High School to the alley) Due to the inability to monitor this Crosswalk before and after school we would like to ensure the safety of our students by having them use a Crosswalk that is visibly marked with a light and a monitor available.

If you are picking your student up on the school side of the street, at this Crosswalk, please continue to do so.  This change is for those that use the Crosswalk to cross the street.  Should you have any questions please let us know.  Thank you for your understanding as we look to secure the safety of your son or daughter.

Scholarship Opportunity
The Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund is available to private school families from grades K to 8.  Attached below is an information sheet and application that could qualify you for up to 75% of your tuition or a maximum of $1,500.

The best part is, that if one child in your family is award a scholarship, additional children in your family may be entitled to scholarship assistance as well.

Please take a look to see if you qualify, it never hurts to try.

Weekly Trash Talk
Recycling can make a difference in the environment and it is something that more and more people should begin to do.  Each American uses around 680 pounds of paper each year and a lot of that is just thrown away. Instead of throwing it away, think about recycling.  Recycling a single days’ worth of the New York Times could save 75,000 trees or more.   Let’s make a difference.

Recycling Challenge
The 7th grade Lego Robotics e-cycle project collected over 200 devices this past week.  Thanks to all who participated in this effort to keep our environment free of hazardous substances.  The good news is that this project will continue.  If you come across more small hand-held devices such as cell phones, iPods, iPads, WI-FI cards, circuit boards, digital cameras, Gameboys, rechargeable batteries, MP3, and earbuds, you can bring them to St. John’s recycling which is held the second Saturday of every month here at school. No large towers or monitors will be accepted.  Help keep our environment safe.

Movie Night
Attached below is a flyer detailing our 2nd Annual Family Movie Night, sponsored by the Girl Scouts, raising awareness for the Allen County Human Society.  We hope you can make it.

Youth Group
The Youth Group will be meeting this Sunday (November 8th) at 6:30 PM at Landeck to enjoy their pancake and sausage dinner.  The cost is $8.00.  At 7:00 PM, we will help clean up after the dinner and then enjoy a game night.  Youth Group activities will end at 8:30 PM.  Hope to see you all there.
