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.
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 https://online.factsmgt.com/aid. 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.
