Dear SJCS Families,
The weeks keep on passing and I’m so thankful for all of our families who continue to support our efforts to keep our school and students safe. We have been blessed to complete 40 days of in-person learning! The next several weeks will be very interesting as new outbreaks develop, and we’ll monitor closely. Due to our new protocols for student and staff safety, we will not be able to celebrate Halloween as we have in the past. Things will likely be very different for the Christmas season as well. We will keep you updated on developments as they arise.
Your child should have received a “Halloween Costume” guideline for you to review. We are allowing Halloween costumes to be worn to school on Friday, October 30 – but please read through the guide so you are aware of the expectations.
Our virtual book fair is still running, every purchase helps our teachers purchase books for their classroom libraries! As the weeks continue to pass, I continue to be amazed at how our students and faculty have adjusted to the “new normal” within our classrooms. It almost feels as though things are back to normal – students are happy and they’re learning, teachers are working diligently to reach each child’s needs, and God is providing us with His grace each day. Thank you for choosing St. John’s, and thank you for allowing us to be on this journey with your family. We are thankful for each and every one of our students as they bring so much life to our classrooms each day!
Thank you to all of you who sold pies this year – we sold 250 pies!
