Partners in Education aims to support the Christian community of St. John students, families, and staff.
1) Provide social opportunities for families
2) Recognize and support teachers, staff, and students
3) Promote school spirit
We partner with Kids in Action nights to provide supper meals to families. We also offer 3-4 Drop-in Breakfast meals throughout the year. All are invited to attend to enjoy food and friendships! Families are given the opportunity to help and are encouraged to invite others.
We also help show appreciation for our teachers and staff on behalf of all the St. John families. We assist in planning and supporting celebrations and events throughout the school year. These events include: teacher welcomes and farewells, welcome back week, teacher and staff gifts, and Teacher Appreciation Week in May.
Finally, we have started some new events over the past year and hope to continue to build upon these: Parents Night Out / Kids Night In, Family Game Night, Read-a-Thon, and parenting seminars.
New in 2019-2020: Partners in Education will be taking over the coordination and planning for fundraisers for the St. John Technology Fund! We look forward to making some changes based on the survey that was completed by many St. John families. Thank you in advance for your support!
