Important Calendar Change
Please record the following. We will have school on Friday, 2/22. Busses will not be in service so you will have to arrange transportation. We will have school on Monday, 2/25 ahead of conferences. It will be a 1pm dismissal day. Busses will not be available that day either.  We will have a full day of school on Tuesday, 2/26, also ahead of conferences. It was previously scheduled as a late start, so you will have to arrange morning transportation, but busses will be available for dismissal. 


Volleyball vs. Teachers
This event has been rescheduled for Friday Feb. 15 at 1pm. 

2019 - 20 Calendar

The Independence public school is considering changing their calendar next year to 90 minute, early dismissals, every other Wednesday. I foresee many scheduling difficulties for parents under this calendar proposal. If you are not a fan of this change (I'm not), the hearing on this matter is Feb. 18 at 5:50pm in the Administration building.

Robot Challenge

One of our alumni, Caleb Kilby is a member of the IHS robotics team. He has offered his expertise to facilitate a Robots Club here at St. John School. The club is open to all middle school students (grades 6 - 8) and will meet every Tuesday from 3:30 - 4:30. If your student is interested, you must contact me and confirm that you are aware that your student(s) will be attending the club. The goal is to equip our students with the knowledge to create their own robots, so they can compete against other school programs. 

The School Tuition Organization is now accepting financial aid applications (online only). This is the website link A significant change for the 2019-20 school year is that all families that file taxes will be required to submit their 2018 tax return. In order to give families more time to complete and upload their 2018 tax return, the deadline for round #1 has been extended to April 15. Important: You must apply for  STO in order to qualify for Kucera Grant and local tuition assistance scholarship money.
