Welcome back to a new school year. We kick-off this year’s Annual Fund with a small reminder of how our Saint John School families have helped build our past, present, and future together. Through your generous contributions in the past five years, we have continuously made significant improvements and innovations to our educational programs as well as our facilities.
Your donations have funded new curriculum materials for math, science, and language arts, as well as technology infrastructure, devices, and student learning applications. Our Learning Support program has been expanded to work with students both individually and in small groups from kindergarten through eighth grade. Saint John School facilities continue to be enhanced and updated. We now have science classrooms for both middle school and primary grade students. Our remodeled middle school, library, and Learning Support room, renovated field, new bleachers, lunch tables, and campus lighting are just some of the improvements we have made to our school in the past five years.
We look forward to your continued generosity in this new year. Participation is the key to our Annual Fund. Eighty six percent of our families contributed something to our fund last year. We appreciate the tremendous support and encourage all our families to contribute whatever they can afford. Our goal is to continue developing a culture of giving that allows us to improve our program and facilities to benefit both our current and future students. Those improvements we have made to date are the direct result of those donations as well as parent feedback through the Eagle Group and Parent Advisory Board.
Supporting us annually with your tax deductible donations is instrumental for providing the necessary resources to support our mission as a Christ-centered environment that empowers our students to gain a thorough understanding of their faith, achieve their highest academic potential, and share Christ’s love through service to others. Have a wonderful school year and thank you for your continued generosity.
