St. John’s is so special because all of the students are so closely knit together that you just know someone will be there to catch you when you fall.

Here are some of the required and elective courses that shape a well-rounded educational experience at
St. John the Evangelist Catholic School

     

Spanish

Students from Kindergarten through Eighth Grade take Spanish class.  One of the final tests in 8th Grade is that the class goes to a local Mexican restaurant and are required to order and speak only in Spanish.


Service Projects

Each year, every class has a different service project. Some benefit charities locally where some help people throughout the world.  During Catholic Schools Week, the entire school participates in a school-wide service project.


DRESS CODE

The School Advisory Council has adopted a dress code for Saint John’s Catholic School. The Principal or designee determines appropriateness under the St. John’s Dress Code. The students dress and appearance promotes the development of Christian values, cleanliness, health, and safety. It also reflects good judgment, poise, increased maturity, and helps to provide a healthy, business-like, and purposeful atmosphere for study. The dress code is consistently enforced at the school.


Art

Students from K through 8th participate in Art Class.  There is an Art Show in the Spring.


Choir and General Music

Students from Junior Kindergarten through 8th Grade are required to participate in choir and general music.



CHRISTMAS CONCERT

Students participate in the annual Christmas concert with Christian music sung in the parish Sanctuary.


Recess, P.E.

While other schools are eliminating recess and P.E., those programs continue at St. John's.  Numerous studies show that physical activity leads to better academic achievement and we see proof of that at St. John's.  St. John's students can even play dodgeball!  Click here to learn more about athletics.
