ST. JOHN'S HOLIDAY APPRECIATION FUND

Considering a holiday gift for your child's teacher? In lieu of a personal gift, the Parents Association encourages you to contribute to the St. John's Holiday Appreciation Fund, which is now open. Donations are neither required nor expected, but always appreciated. The fund serves as an inclusive, easy way for parents to show their appreciation and for all faculty to feel parents' gratitude. Donations, which have no monetary limit, received by Friday, December 13, will be divided and hand-delivered before Christmas. You may use the link above or drop a check off at the front desk. When you contribute to the fund, you will receive a printable certificate to include in a Holiday card to your teachers, letting them know about the donation.
