Dear Parent(s)/Guardians(s) and Students:
We would like to extend a big thank you to Mrs. Hellman and Mrs. Gillespie for all of their hard work in helping Homecoming, both Friday and Saturday, be such a success. The hard work of our Student Council preparing the field and gym, the beautiful speech given by Queen Jessica, and though the outcome of the game was not what we had hoped; it was a great weekend for alumni and students to gather for a little fun.
Following Homecoming, our Seniors and Juniors have been busy this week transforming the gym and cafeteria into the Fall Festival. Wednesday was our Children’s Festival, and the energy in the gym was electric. Thursday and Friday our Seniors and Juniors had the opportunity to continue an age-old tradition of cleaning and preparing the chicken for this Saturday and Sunday, while making coleslaw and other items for our dinners. Memories that will not be forgotten. From the Pre-Schoolers to the High Schoolers to the Alumni to our guests, the Festival is a time for all of us to come together as a Blue Jay Family.
A big thank you goes out to all of those that have given their time and energy so far this week to make the Festival this weekend possible. I would love to name you all but I am sure I would forget one or two. Whether working the Children’s Festival, bringing your children to the Festival, helping prepare the kitchen and meals, or set-up of treasure island and other important booths, this is what has allowed St. John’s to endure and will continue with your support.
