Welcome to the 2018-19 school year at St. John the Baptist Catholic School and the first Thursday of the year.   Thank you for choosing to send your children to SJB and continuing to send them here.   As you see them grow academically, physically, social-emotionally, and spiritually, you will surely know that the  decision is right. In the short time I have been here, I have learned that it is truly a special place.

What a wonderful week it has been! It was great to see our families at the Parish Picnic and Back to School Bash as well as the Supply Drop-off and Ice Cream Social sponsored by our Parent Club. Moreover, our first day was delightful. What a blessing it was to have so many families join us for Mass. Please know that you are always welcome to attend Mass with us. Throughout the year, there will be plenty of opportunities to join us in the traditions that make St. John the unique school that it is.

This is just a reminder that our Curriculum Night for students in Kindergarten through eighth grade is on Tuesday, September 4th at 6:00 PM. It will be a night to learn about classroom procedures and the learning which will take place this year.

Please be sure you have edited your profile on SchoolSpeak.   If any of your information changes throughout the year, please make the changes by logging in and clicking “update profile.” Families new to SJB will receive or should have received a welcome email with login information. This information from your profile will be relayed to School Messenger for contact purposes should there be a need for an emergency school closure.  By accessing your SchoolSpeak account, you will be able to see the weekly Thursday Principal letter, 2018-19 School Calendar, and the Handbook as well as communiques progress from your child’s teacher(s) and information regarding your child’s progress.

There will be two attachments included with this posting. Please be sure to review both attachments for important and pertinent information for the start of the year. One has school related required forms for signature and the other has information related to additional upcoming school events which you don’t want to miss.

We are so very grateful that you are partnering with us in one of the greatest missions —to show the children in the way that they should go so that they will be mindful of why they are here on this earth. WE are here to know, to love, and to serve our God and our neighbor. It is going to be a fantastic year!
