Dear Parent(s)/Guardians(s) and Students:
Even though we are only halfway through July, the start of the school year will be upon us very soon, as we can already see by back to school ads that are beginning to pop up. To help make the start of the school year smooth for everyone, and make your shopping trips easy and successful, this Newsletter will be outlining some questions you may be having concerning a few minor changes.
Attached below you will find the changes that have been made to the Student Handbook, the Teacher Supply List, and the Footwear Options for the Junior High. Please remember that if you should have any questions, do not hesitate to call, email, or stop in the office, our goal is to not make this more challenging, but rather make your back to school shopping and transition to the 2016-17 school year as smooth as possible.
Please keep an eye out for this information, as it will also be coming home in the mail.
Thank you for all of your help and support as we institute these changes. Without your faith in St. John’s, we would not be able to accomplish our mission.
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.

Reminder – Many important dates for next year have already been updated on the School Calendar. If any dates are of particular interest, which are not on the calendar please do not hesitate to ask.
Junior High Footwear Dress Code
Below you will find the shoe selections for your Junior High student(s). We highly recommend you purchase shoes from one of the options pre-selected for you from Shoe Carnival in Lima or Shoe Carnival online. You can also order shoes at the store if they would be out of stock. If you purchase shoes outside of these options, we cannot guarantee they will meet the uniform guidelines. Which may result in disciplinary action.
If you have any questions the sales clerks at Shoe Carnival will have the list of the pre-approved shoes, please do not hesitate to ask. We hope this makes it easier for our families with your back to school shopping and eliminates the questions as to what footwear is appropriate.
Student Handbook Changes
Below you will find the abbreviated changes that have been made to the Student Handbook for the 2016-17 School. Please be sure to read the entire Handbook, when it comes home after registration, for the complete descriptions. Your help is instrumental in ensuring the policies and guidelines outlined are achieved.
Student Supply List
Attached below you will find the supply list for your student(s), and the classes they are enrolled in. If you do not see a teacher your child has on this list, then there are no supplies they will need to have or they will be informed of anything they need on the first day of school.
Should you have any questions about any of the above-mentioned changes, please do not hesitate to ask. We want nothing more than to make this transition as smooth as possible for you and your student(s).
Have a wonderful weekend.
Go Jays and God Bless,
