Good Morning Parent(s)/Guardians(s) and Students:
Thank you for all of your help and support as we begin a new year, a new year for everyone. Thank you for your faith in St. John’s, as we would not be able to accomplish our mission, without your care and support. We thank you for choosing St. John’s for your student(s) and your family.
I will be trying something new this year involving the Newsletter. I know we all live very busy lives and I want to do my part to help. After talking with a number of parents and the staff I will be moving to a bi-weekly newsletter, which I hope is more concise for your busy schedules. However, if anything would change I will keep you up to date with messages regarding any particular issues you need to be aware of.
Thank you again for everything and have a great week.
Congratulations to the 2017 Homecoming Court

Our 2017 Homecoming Queen – Jessica Odenweller
Crowned by Troy Elwer and Cole Reindel
The Homecoming Guidelines have not changed from last year. The U.S. Bishops state that “as Christians we should dress in a modest manner, wearing clothing that reflects our reverence for God and that manifest our respect for the dignity of the liturgy and for one another.” I do wish that you exercise modesty and sound judgments as you shop for dresses. I understand the challenges we face, adhering to our Catholic Faith while trying to shop in an environment that does not always share our beliefs. However, know that your help is greatly appreciated in supporting the message that we work to accomplish together each day.
Guidelines are on our website http://www.delphosstjohns.org/Forms.aspx and attached below.
