Dear St. John’s School Community members,

Welcome to the St. John’s School website. We hope that you find this website to be informative and useful for you.  We are delighted that you are part of the St. John’s, community and we look forward to your participation in our school activities and initiatives.

Our goal at St. John’s is to create a Christ-centered, positive, encouraging and stimulating learning environment for our students so that each child will have the opportunity to learn, experience and grow to his or her potential.  We believe that to achieve the most fulfilling and rewarding education for your child, we must work together as a team. Children’s attitudes, values, and self-concepts are molded at home and at school; therefore, a positive and mutually supportive home/school partnership is essential to encourage learning, skill development and self-discipline. Together with parents we want to instill a sense of responsibility, self-worth, respect for self, others and the environment. We look forward to your continued support throughout the 2018 – 2019 school year.

The motto I have brought to St. John’s is “I am My Choices”. By using this motto as our communal thinking and way of looking at things we can live in a loving and successful environment. It is our belief that when we make good choices – good things will happen for us. On the other hand, when we make poor choices there are negative consequences. We will continue to challenge everyone to do something positive every day at school and in the local community. We invite you, the St. John’s Catholic Elementary School community, to join with us in following our motto; we will see the great results of our choices in all that we do.

You will find many information items on our website. It is our plan to keep the site up to date with updates, calendar notes and news items. If you find that there is specific information that you need that is not posted, please contact the office.

I look forward to working with the entire community to see the students of St. John’s excel spiritually, academically, athletically and socially.

God Bless,

Paul Gladding
