Please contact the School Office or a member of the Parent School Association (PSA) for information on ways of contributing your most precious resource—your time and energy.
For more than 50 years, our volunteers have been an integral part of our foundation at St. John. We welcome parents, grandparents and parishioners sharing their time, talents and treasures with our students. If you are willing to share your gifts with us, please call the main office, 629-6551.
As a Catholic School, we base our education upon the teachings of Jesus. These teachings foster respect, responsibility, justice, gratitude, and peacefulness. Our students put these traits into practice daily. Our students care about their school, fellow students and the world beyond.
Service is an important part of our faith. We participate in many service projects throughout the year. When students are given the opportunity to help someone else, they see firsthand the joy and relief they can bring to others. They learn to look beyond their own wants. By encouraging our students to be charitable at such a young age, we lead them toward a life of service. Our students collect food for Thanksgiving baskets, make blankets for hospitalized children, and serve food at the North End Soup Kitchen, to name just a few of the many outreach projects that we take part in at St. John the Evangelist Catholic School.
Our students are a vibrant aspect of our parish community. They volunteer in a wide variety of parish activities. Every year they can be seen volunteering at our parish festival, Applefest. They help operate the kids’ game tent, serve food, clean the grounds and work the aid stations for the road races. Each grade takes their turn serving coffee and doughnuts after Sunday morning Masses.
Preserving the environment is very important to our student body. We have school-wide recycling programs in place. The students take an active role in keeping our school grounds beautiful.
For our Kindergarten students, who are just becoming accustomed to attending school masses, our Grade 8 students act as mass mentors.
