The teachers and students have been working to showcase their work at this year’s Classroom Open House, which will be held on Wednesday, September 20th 4:30-6:30. Now that school has been in session for six weeks, the Classroom Open House provides another opportunity to learn more about academic goals and curriculum expectations for the year. It’s a great time to ask questions now that we are in the swing of the new school year. Information about Instructional materials for academics and religion, grading, classroom routines and our new Eagle Expectations will be shared. Teachers will have a sign-up sheet for individual parents conferences – which will be scheduled on a different day at your convenience. Please stop by to visit the classrooms at your leisure, visit the Book Fair, and join us in the Parish Hall at 6:15 to learn about robotics, after school sports and other enrichment opportunities.


Volunteer sign-up sheets for upcoming PTO events such as our Trunk or Treat Fall Festival and Chili-Cook Off will also be available. These special PTO events are a wonderful way for busy families to support our school, meet other families and complete your volunteer hours.

School Advisory Council and Finance Council (SAC)

In accordance with Florida Catholic Conference Accreditation, St. John School has begun organizing for our School Advisory Council and School Finance Committee. We are looking for new members with a background in organizational management, facilities and finance. We will meet approximately once a month for an hour and a half. The School Advisory Council and Finance Committee are consulting bodies that assist the school administration in the areas of Christ-centered academic and religious education, financial stability, facilities management and marketing

If you are interested in helping with these important advisory committees, please e-mail me at vicki.parks@sjseagles.org. We will also have applications available at Open House at the Volunteer table.

Virtues in Practice : CHARITY

The kindergarten and first grade students will be sharing information about the virtue of Charity and St. Gertrude. Charity is loving God with all your heart, mind and strength, and your neighbor as yourself. In addition, some students will be recognized for demonstrating the virtue of charity in in their words and action.


We would love for parents to join us our first community Morning Prayer in the courtyard at 7:55 am on Friday, September 29th. School community Morning Prayers will be held on the last Friday of each month, and hosted by different grade levels and all are welcome.

Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!

Yours in Christ,

Dr. Parks
