January 30, 2015 Three parishes... One commitment to Catholic Education From the Principal’s Desk... Dear Parents, As we close the day today with an early release (yippee, the principal also likes early release days) and we bring a close to this year’s celebration of Catholic Schools Week we have to stop for a moment and express a sincere word of thank you to each of you, our faithful parents. You are the people who make great sacrifices to send your children to St. John’s School. We are ever so grateful for this and more so for the trust you place in each of us as we care for and educate your children. May Our Lord bless each of you abundantly for all you do for your children and for this school. Please check the backpacks today for the second quarter report cards. Once you have had a few moments to study them, please take a moment to sit down with your child and discuss what is represented within the report card. Let your child know how proud you are of them if the grades listed are truly a result of their best effort even if the grade(s) is not an “A” across the board. If the grades could be better take time to discuss plans of action both at home and at school to help those grades get better. Conferences will be coming up on February 12th and this would be a great time to discuss things with the teachers. I highly recommend that your son or daughter be in on some or all of these conferences especially in the upper grades for they are the ones who have to make the adjustments and buckle down more. A reminder that our 2015/2016 school registration is open now through the end of February. Submitting your registration(s) early helps us to put accurate numbers together and to be able to respond to new parents especially in situations where class sizes may be getting to the maximum number. Please do all you can to encourage new families to send their children to this very good school. Looking ahead, there will be no school on Friday February 13th and Monday February 16th. Friday the 13th is the trade off day for conference on February 12th and Monday the 16th is the celebration of Presidents’ Day. Yours in Christ, Al Grote, Interim Principal Annual Book Fair The Book Fair will be open during school hours Monday, February 2 through Friday, February 6 for students to preview and shop. The Book Fair will also be open from 12—2 PM on Sunday February 1st and 8th (after 11:00 Mass).
