June 1st Newsletter

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

Good Afternoon.

As we close the 2016-17 School Year, we want to recognize our Seniors and all they have done our Parish, School, and Students. They have been a great example for the Underclassmen of how a class can come together and support one another, in order to accomplish their goals. The Seniors were able to celebrate some of their last moments together this past week, at their Senior Retreat, Graduation Practice, and Senior Awards, with Sunday marking the last time they will all be together as a class. With graduation concluded, each of them will begin to go their separate ways and begin a new chapter in their lives. We wish each and every one of them the best as they continue on their journey through life, but want them to remember that once a Blue Jay, always a Blue Jay. Should they need anything we are here for them. Congratulations Class of 2017.

Congratulations and good luck to Jill Gemmer, who placed first in the Discus at the Track Regionals in Troy, and earned a spot to compete at State this weekend. You have made the Blue Jay Family proud and there is no doubt you will represent St. John’s with pride in Columbus.
