November 25th Newsletter

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

The St. John’s Family is praying that every one of you has a blessed, happy, and safe Thanksgiving Holiday.  We pray that all of you are able to enjoy a little time off with family and friends, and look forward to seeing the students back on Monday the 30th.

We would like to congratulate our newest Hall of Fame Inductees, who will be speaking with our students, Monday morning at 8:00 AM

Professional Achievement – Dick Scherger – Class of 1959

Arts/Athletics Achievement – Joe Bonifas – Class of 1971

Service to Mankind – Brother Nick Renner – Class of 1961

Service to St. John’s – Mary Beth Will

What a special place that we can honor those that have either given St. John’s so much or have been an instrumental figure in their communities and professions outside of St. John’s.  It truly shows you that if you work hard, great things can happen.  Congratulations to our newest Inductees and best wishes to those that will come in the future.
