Dear Parent(s)/Guardians(s) and Students:
Another week has passed, but a week that leads us into our Christmas Break, and an opportunity to spend time with family and friends. We hope everyone has a chance to take a breath from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives and spend time with those we love.
From the St. John’s Family to yours we would like to extend to you an old Irish Christmas Blessing. “During the coming Christmas season, may you be blessed with the spirit of the season, which is peace, the gladness of the season, which is hope, and the heart of the season which is love.”
Below is a little information about Local Scholarship Opportunities, a Tuition Scholarship Opportunity, Youth Group, Yearbook Orders, Blanket Raffle, Lego Robotics Team, and a Food Drive Tonight.
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.

Bishop Thomas’s Christmas Greeting
Mr. Unterbrink would like all Seniors and their parents to be attentive to the attached list of local scholarships. The majority of these scholarships have deadlines in the spring of the year. For nearly all of these scholarships, Mr. Unterbrink has yet to receive this year’s application. Upon receipt of each of these scholarship applications, Mr. Unterbrink will be announcing them, and the criteria required to the Seniors during school.
Four Lego Robotics teams competed in the First Lego League (FLL) Sylvania STEM Center Regional tournament on December 12. The 6th grade Bionic Birds won the Teamwork award. This award recognizes a team that is able to accomplish more together than they could as individuals. The 6th grade Jay Bots won the Robot Performance and Gracious Professionalism awards. The Robot Performance award recognizes a team that scores the most points during the Robot Game. The Gracious Professionalism award recognizes a team whose members show each other and other teams respect at all times. The Jr. High Lego Breakers won the Inspiration award. This award celebrates a team that displays extraordinary enthusiasm.
The Jay Bots and the Jr. High team, The Destroyers, will both be advancing to the Sylvania/BGSU FLL District Tournament on January 9.
