Good Morning Parent(s)/Guardians(s) and Students:
As we begin August, we look forward to the start of a new school year. A year of new beginnings, challenges, victories, and continuing to develop in our faith and education. Over the next few weeks, emails will be going home with valuable information about the start of school, important dates, and other information to keep you well-versed and up to date.
If your email has recently changed please contact the Junior High/High School office so we can update our records, to ensure you receive the information.
Attached below you will find the changes that have been made to the Student Handbook, the Teacher Supply List, Registration Information, Cross Country Information, Footwear Options for the Junior High, and other items. Please remember that if you should have any questions, do not hesitate to call, email, or stop in the office, our goal is to not make this more challenging, but rather make your back to school shopping and transition to the 2017-18 school year as smooth as possible.
Thank you for all of your help and support as we institute these changes. Without your faith in St. John’s, we would not be able to accomplish our mission.
Please refer to http://delphosstjohns.org/hs-calendar/ for the most up-to-date information about the happenings taking place in the Junior High and High School.
For Athletic Information please follow this link http://delphosstjohns.org/sports-calendar/
Reminder – Many important dates for next year have already been updated on the School Calendar. If any dates are of particular interest, which are not on the calendar please do not hesitate to ask.
Did you know having a bachelor’s degree can qualify you to be a substitute teacher? You can earn up to $85.00 per day. We are looking for qualified substitute teachers for the 2017-2018 school year. If you are interested please contact the High School Office for more information.

If your student’s shoes from last year still fit them and are in good condition, please feel free to wear those this year as well. Future shopping events will take place throughout the school year, in case another pair is needed.
