CARNIVAL RESCHEDULED TO APRIL 6

iOS 12: PLEASE DO NOT UPDATE

Last week Apple released iOS 12. Please do not allow your child to upgrade his or her iPad until you receive an all-clear email from the school. When major iOS updates are made available, it may take several weeks for some app developers to adapt their software to any changes. Upgrading before we test frequently used apps may mean your child will be unable to complete assignments. Please help us and remind your child not to update to iOS 12 until we notify you.

PARENT EDUCATION: MINDFUL PARENTING

Please save the date for our first Parent Education speaker of the year with licensed professional counselor and registered play therapist, Kristin Bemis on Wednesday, October 24 at 8:15 a.m. We are thrilled to have Kristin back due to popular demand. She will discuss adaptive brain-based strategies for managing your child's emotions through communication, limit-setting and choice-giving, along with esteem-building techniques, and tips for parents to carve out some time for reflection and mindfulness. You won't want to miss this valuable presentation! Please R.S.V.P.

GRANDPARENTS AND SPECIAL FRIENDS DAY

St. John's will celebrate Grandparents and Special Friends Day on Friday, November 16. Invitations will be mailed mid-October.
