First Grade Sea Otter News

We thoroughly enjoyed our first week in the new classroom. We spent a lot of time learning new routines and procedures as well as wrapping up our study of the Desert Habitat!

Holy Week is a time of learning and reflection at St. John. Today we honored Jesus’ sacrifice on Good Friday through silent dismissal. Students made Holy Week books, studied each of Jesus’ last days on Earth, and prayed with the school community the Stations of the Cross.

Have a joyous Easter and a fabulous break!

THANK YOU-Lenten Service Projects: Thank you for your generous donations of items for the Teddy Bear Patrol, Sock Drive, and Book Drive. And for all your Rice Bowl contributions as well. It was a joy to watch the students come together to give and bless others.

Spirit Gear:

We are now offering spirit gear for our families!  The on-line store will be open until April 22nd,  after that time it will take two weeks for the gear to arrive.  The spirit gear does NOT take the place of our school uniform.  Show your school spirit and order today!!
