We are proud to announce that our first grade teacher, Mrs. Ownby, has agreed to coach our girls' basketball team this year. Practice begins in two weeks. A sign-up sheet is in the office. We are scheduled to play 9 games this year, however, so far only three girls have signed up for the team.
Once Upon a Crime (time change)
Will justice be served in this hilarious fairy-tale courtroom play packed with characters we all know and love? It’s up to you, the audience, which serves as the jury! Goldilocks is the defendant, on trial for breaking and entering. The plaintiffs are — you guessed it — the three bears. As their lawyers Henny, Penny, and Tom Thumb go toe-to-toe hoping to prove their respective clients’ cases, other fairy tale characters are called to testify as witnesses, including Hansel and Gretel, Jack and Cow, and Granny. Even the Big Bad Wolf takes the stand, but can any of these witnesses be trusted themselves? Is Goldilocks guilty or innocent?
Join our 5th
grade class Monday, November 5th
in the upper gym at St. John school. Shows are at 9:30 a.m.
and 6:30 p.m. and discover the fate of Goldilocks!

Did you know that if you shop on Amazon.com that Amazon will make a donation to St. John School based on the amount of your purchase? Simply go to https://smile.amazon.com and register an account. There are a lot of St. John Schools, so I recommend that you type in our Tax ID# (42-0736175) when it asks you for the charity of your choice. This is a free service and helps out SJS tremendously.
Additionally, they have announced an upcoming AmazonSmile promotion. From Oct 29 - Nov 2, AmazonSmile will increase the donation rate on all eligible purchases. This will be their largest bonus donation promotion to date, and is a great opportunity for St. John Catholic School to benefit from AmazonSmile donations.
