Good afternoon,

Thank you so much for your continued support of the Metropolitan Ministries food drive! The students had so much fun dressing out today, thank you! We look forward to welcoming Gary Littrell one of the local Congressional Medal of Honor recipients to St. John’s Episcopal on Tuesday, November 19th. Please click this link to read his bio. He is coming to speak to the Lower Division students after chapel, parents are welcome to attend! And we look forward to all the fun activities at the Barnes and Noble Book Fair this week! We hope you can bring your child and your family, to help support SJE!

Have a beautiful weekend!

  • 1st grade is going to the Straz Center on Wednesday, November 20, at 11:45 a.m. They are going to watch a special showing of Elephant and Piggie by Mo Willems. They will be taking buses to and from school.
  • No school, Thanksgiving Holiday, Monday, November 25-Friday, November 29. Classes resume, Monday, December 2.
  • 4th-grade parents, field trip reminder! We are taking the 4th graders to Busch Gardens on Friday, December 6th. We need 4 chaperones per class, and we also would love for you to join us! If you would like to chaperone (supervise 4-5 students) please use the sign-up link (BELOW), if you are going to join us on the field trip as a volunteer, please email your child’s teacher. Chaperones and volunteers will need to pay for their own entrance into the park. If you would like to ride the buses we will be leaving right after chapel (around 8:30 a.m.). We plan on returning to school by 2:15 p.m. Students will be eating lunch at the park, so I suggest each child bring $15 for lunch. I would prefer no extra shopping money, please. We ask the students to wear their spirit day attire. We will send more information as it gets closer. Please let me know if you have any questions, big or small! We need one more chaperone for Mr. Salzer’s class and one more for Miss Syversen’s class:
  • Please mark your calendars! I wanted to let you know that we changed the date of the 4th grade Christmas Pageant to Thursday, December 19. This date better accommodates the play practice schedule. The pageant is immediately after chapel on that morning and lasts about 40 minutes until about 9:00 a.m. We apologize for this date change. We will send out more details about the pageant next week. Any questions, please let me know.

The Dads’ Club Metropolitan Ministries food drive, in partnership with St. John’s Church, began Monday, 11/4 and ends Friday, 11/15, please help feed families in need this holiday season!  Bins are placed in front of the Primary Division for easy drop-off.
