November 21st Newsletter

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

I just want to make you aware of a change we are going try as it relates to the Newsletter.  Moving forward we will be looking to send the Newsletter out on Monday, as a way to kick-off the week and keep you informed of the happenings that may be taking place or coming soon.  It is something different, but we hope it is a change for the better.  If you would like to supply us with any feedback regarding the Newsletter, it is welcomed, as we continue to make changes to ensure it is a beneficial piece of information each week.  Thank you for your help.

We would like to extend a thank you to Dr. Bill and Lori Scherger for speaking with the Junior High about a difficult topic.  A thank you to the Girl Scouts who hosted a Family Movie night here at St. John’s as a fundraiser for a Gaga Pit for school.  And to all of our parents for attending Parent-Teacher Conferences, checking grades through Progress Book, keeping in touch with teachers, and allowing us the opportunity to work with your son or daughter.  Please remember, that even though Parent-Teacher Conferences are only once a year, we hope the lines of communication stay open year round.

We would like to extend congratulations to our four newest Hall of Fame Inductees, who will be inducted into the Hall Fame this Sunday and will be speaking with our students next Monday.  In Professional Achievement: Duane Pohlman, Class of 1982, in Arts/ Athletic Achievement: Ken Burgei, Class of 1968, for Service to Mankind: Father Bob Holden, Class of 1954, for Service to St. John’s: Dorothy Fisher.  If you are interested in attending, please contact Bob Ebbeskotte at or 419-692-0752.
