February 6th Newsletter

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

Good Afternoon.

What an amazing Catholic Schools Week.  It is hard to believe that we were actually able to have a full week, as weather usually does not cooperate, but when it does the things we can accomplish.  Whether that be as a school becoming the Catholic Schools Week Logo, celebrating Mass, Blessing Throats, praying a decade of the rosary, starting a flash mob, or participating in a Pep Assembly, being part of the St. John’s Family is truly special.  Thank you for being part of that family.

A big thank you to everyone who put so much time and effort into this week.  From Mrs. Honigford, Sister Joella, Sister Susan, and Father Dennis, to the teachers, the students, and PTO for providing a Luncheon, Prizes, Cookies and Ice Cream for the Junior High/High School, and Popcorn for the Elementary.  None of this could have been done without you.

Thank you to our Seniors, from Pep Band, to Wresting, to Boys and Girls Basketball.  Our Seniors have set an example that the Underclassmen can look to as they one day will be recognized for all of their dedication and hard work, and take with them memories that will last a lifetime.  Our Seniors have left their mark on every program here at school, thank you to our Seniors for being examples of what it means to be a Blue Jay.

A few of the items below include the weekly calendar and schedule reminders, Prom Guidelines, Little Angles Music, Yearbook Orders, Kindergarten Screening, Golden Apple Award, and the Northwest Ohio Scholarship.

Prom Guidelines

Attached below are the Guidelines that we will be instituting for this year’s Prom, hosted at St. John’s High School.  These guidelines must be looked over and followed to help support our position of creating an atmosphere that lives up to the Catholic Values and Beliefs we try to instill in our students on a daily basis.  If you have any questions regarding the Policy, please let me know.

Reminder – All Dresses must be submitted for approval, to gain access to Prom.  Please refer to the guidelines on how to complete this process.

It can feel good to be looked at, but remember do they really see the true you.  In dressing modest young women can be known for who they are and not what they wear.  Humility is the sentiment and modesty is how we live our lives so that God can bless us.
