St. John School Counts down to Catholic Schools Week next week!

Jan 25 2018


Theme ~ Catholic Schools : Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed. 

At St. John School and across the United States, Catholic Schools Week is a celebration of Catholic Education. The National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) selects a theme and each school plans activities around this theme. At St. John School, Catholic Schools Week is a celebration of all the elements of our school that make it such a special place - students, faculty, staff, parents, friends, and the entire parish community. 

Please join us as we celebrate this theme of learn, serve, lead, succeed and this special week together!
