News and Upcoming Events

EARLY CHILDHOOD ADMISSION COFFEE

St. John’s will host our Early Childhood (pre-k and kindergarten) Admission Coffee on Wednesday, October 23 from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. in the library. We would love to have your friends who are evaluating options for the 2020-2021 school year join us for this informative event! They can read more about the admission process and RSVP at stjohnsschool.org/openhouse.

DIRECTORY UPDATE

Thank you for your patience while we finalized updates to the 2019-20 Directory. We hope to have delivery from the printer by November 1. Each household will receive one printed copy, to be distributed at that time in the backpack of your youngest St. John’s student. In the meantime, we invite you to access a pdf version of the directory in the secure Parents Web under Resources.

iPadOS DO NOT UPDATE

We are still testing some necessary apps for the newly released iPadOS. Please remind your child NOT to upgrade his or her iPad until you receive an all-clear email from the school. Upgrading before we test frequently used apps may mean your child will be unable to access apps or complete assignments for school.

MIDDLE SCHOOL HALLOWEEN GUIDELINES

Student Council and National Junior Honor Society have planned a Middle School Halloween costume day for Thursday, October 31. Middle School students may wear their costumes to school that day. Costumes must follow free-dress guidelines and may not include masks, makeup, weapons, inflatables or elements considered inappropriate for Lower School students. School uniforms are required for those who choose not to participate.

LOWER SCHOOL HALLOWEEN GUIDELINES

This year, Lower School students may wear Halloween costumes all day. On Thursday, October 31 the Lower School will celebrate Halloween with a parade, sing-along, and classroom parties at the end of the school day. Students who would like to wear a costume should come dressed to morning drop-off, as students will not be changing into their costumes at school. If a student opts to not wear a costume, they must wear their normal school uniform. Dismissal for kindergarten through fourth grade is 3:00 p.m. Please review the Lower School Halloween Guidelines. Please keep in mind that all costumes must comply with our free dress guidelines.

PICTURE RETAKES

School photo retakes will take place on Tuesday, October 29 from 7:30 - 9:30 a.m. in the Lower School Commons. If you wish to have your child's photo retaken, please return the photo packet that you received to your child’s teacher before October 29.  All students who wish to have their photos taken must wear full dress uniforms including sweaters/blazers.
