The Church Bible Study currently is, “Christ Have Mercy.” When we pray, Christ have mercy on us, we know that He will hear us then take action to help us. Christ having mercy means He will see our need AND will take action by forgiving our sins, by providing for our needs, and by sending others to help us. In Chapel on Wednesday, Oct. 11th we recognized some of our students. The teachers saw these students showing mercy to others. The students were examples of what Jesus Christ wants us to do for each other. The following students were recognized:

Alden A., Alexis B., Sarah B., Max B., Quinn B., Drew C., Luke D., Aaiden F., Wyatt G., Amelia H., Clayton H., Grace J., Shelby M., Anna M., Spencer M., Lena M., Lylah N., Scarlett P., Elaine R., Sophia S., Isaac T., Rylee W.



Thank you to all the drivers/walkers using their pick-up placards each day. It has helped to make the dismissal process run a lot easier. During drop-off, please try to refrain from being on your phone. We have many children entering the building from all directions and the less distractions we have, the safer our students will be.


School pictures have arrived and will be sent home this week with students. The classroom composite pictures will be delivered at a later date.


Picture retakes will take place on Wednesday, November 8. Inter-State Studios will take pictures for those students who were not here on picture day in September, or for those who have returned the original pictures to request a retake. The forms will be outside the office in the hallway. To order online, please visit: and use the order code: 23544NB.

Do you do laundry at your house? Do you buy laundry soap? If you answered yes to those questions, then the St. John Youth have a deal for you. The Youth are selling Laundry detergent (the liquid and the powder paks), dishwashing detergent, and garbage bags. Pricing starts at $40. It’s the best deal in town. The youth would love if you would spread the word to your neighbors, so we are sending home a flyer. You can also order online. All orders are due with payment by Oct. 25th. You can turn your order forms into the office.
