St. John competed well in Track & Field this season. The Lions placed third out of ten teams at the Sleepy Eye track meet. We also placed second in the the Redwood meet scoring over 300 points total. Over 100 ribbons were handed out this spring to athletes in grades 5-8 from just two track meets! We are very proud of our athletes and we look forward to competing next fall.

From the Principal’s Desk:

He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed! Hallelujah! What Joy these sentences give to us! I hope and pray that you and your family had a blessed Easter.

The students and teachers just finished with their Spring Break which will rejuvenate and energize our minds and bodies. This will allow us all to push ourselves and finish up the school year working as diligently as possible.

Once again St. John has hired a professional company called Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre to do our upper grade musical this year. We will be performing “Robin Hood” on April 20-21. April 20 will have a dinner served before the 6:30 p.m. show and the April 21st show will be at 1:00 p.m. It is amazing that the team comes in to our school on Monday and by Friday they are presenting the musical to the audience. Last year we had about 350 people come to the two shows. They provide the scenery, costumes, props, make-up, and the know how! Last year was our first year using PFCT and we are looking forward to another year of learning great things from a theater group that does this for a living. Come out and enjoy one or both of the shows and come early for dinner on Friday, April 20.
