Eagles in Action
4th Grade Eagles in Action
The 4th Graders' Eagles in Action project for January is BEDS PLUS. Since 1988, BEDS PLUS has given the homeless a safe place to sleep, hot homemade meals, professional counseling, and the job services they need to become self-sufficient. The 4th graders will be traveling to the BEDS PLUS facility at the end of the month to make and serve lunch, and also learn more about homelessness. Offerings will go to pay for the the lunch and to pay for small valued gift cards that can be used by BEDS PLUS clients (Goodwill, Dunkin Donuts, Walgreens, etc.).
Thank you for your support! 
Announcements
All School Open House
Sunday, January, 13 12:00pm-2:00pm
On January 13, we will open our school to prospective school families and give them the opportunity to tour the school, receive information, meet staff, and get answers to any questions they may have. Our best recruitment comes through the words of parents, children, and congregation members.

We encourage all current parents to invite another family that could benefit from a quality, Christ-centered education at St. John’s. As an incentive for school families to recruit new students, there is a  $1,000  incentive toward your children’s tuition for each new student who enrolls because of your influence. In our smaller grades (incoming 3 rd , 5 th  & 6 th  ) the incentive is  $1500  per new student. We are looking for families that will help give tours. Please contact the school office if you are available! If you tour a family, work with them during enrollment & they sign up, they can be your referral!

Call the school office for more information on how your family can
benefit from this new incentive program.
