For every  $100 in pledges or donations that families receive, their name will be entered into a drawing with a chance to win a Springfree trampoline. Drawing will be held on Jog-a-thon Celebration day, October 14th.

To all of the volunteers who will be on hand tomorrow to help set up the course, mark laps and keep the kids hydrated – thank you!

Go Eagles!

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 16th- all day during school, we will run in groups by class. Come cheer on your students or run with them! (class running times tbd). This is a RAIN OR SHINE event!

That evening, we will celebrate at the WELCOME BACK PARTY!

Meet new and old friends and greet the 2016-2017 school year at the Welcome Back Party and Carnival on Friday, September 16th from 5 to 8pm. This community event includes something for every member of your St. John family. Preschoolers and elementary age children play free games at the carnival, which will be hosted in the St. John gym. Middle school kids will be running the games which include face-painting, cake/cupcake walk, skee roll, the flying fish game, the crazy hat game and the big-mouth clown game. All of the games are free, and the kids like the prizes, too. Carnival games are available from 5:00-7:30pm.

Parents will love not making dinner: food trucks are open at 5:30pm. Buy tickets in advance after school in the courtyard on Friday, September 9 and Thursday, September 15th. You can also buy food tickets at the event. This year’s food trucks include Emerald City Hot Dogs (2), Taco Flair, and Streetzeria (2). Dessert from Nutty Squirrel will be free, courtesy of the Parent Association. Use this link to see this year’s food truck menu.

Bring your chairs and picnic blankets and join us for the 2016 Welcome Back Party and Carnival! We can’t wait to catch up with everyone and see how many kids are taller than their parents and teachers!
