Re-Enrollment ends this Friday. We are interviewing and enrolling new families next week. If you have not re-enrolled your children, please do so by the end of this week.


St. John has issued a call to Mr. Eric Brofford. He currently serves as Principal at Grace Chapel Lutheran School in Bellefontaine Neighbors, MO. Please keep him, his family, and Grace Chapel School in your prayers.

Congratulations to our Varsity Eagles on a hard fought St. James tourney. Their placement does not indicate how well they played the entire weekend. There were some games that ended with a 2-point difference. Our Eagle Cheerleaders and fans rocked the house and made some noise for the boys all weekend. Be sure to join us this Thursday for our boys’ last home game against Trinity. Reserve starts at 5 and Varsity follows at 6. Our 8th grade players will be honored in a brief ceremony after the JV game. Then our Varsity boys finish the season with a tournament at Our Shepherd this weekend. Their first game is Friday at 5 pm.


Our cheerleaders competed for individual and team honors at the Varsity Boy’s Tournament in Lafayette this past weekend. Penelope M. was selected to the all-star cheerleading squad. Congratulations, Penelope!

Information is available outside the office and was sent home last week about the annual Camp Invention to be hosted by Bunker Hill Elementary School from June 4-8 for Grades K-6 (9 AM – 3:30 PM daily). This week long program presents children with hands-on challenges that encourage creative problem solving, teamwork, entrepreneurship, and innovation.


Everything that happens about God’s word is true including all His promises. Archaeologists are finding artifacts that prove what the Bibles says happened. At the east end of the building (by the C9 door), there are two showcases with a display depicting God’s promises. There are verses scattered around for you to find and match to the promise. Our school theme is also somewhere in those showcases to discover. Take the challenge to see how many promises you can connect.
