3/8/19 This Week At SJS!

Here's the "Pulse" on what's happening at St. John's THIS coming week:

Hello, School Family! We hope you're having a wonderful week. :)

It's THAT time of year again - time to re-register for the coming School year! Even though it's hard to think about next year when we feel like winter will never end, right? But, with district-wide deadlines for registration and transportation planning coming up fast on April 1st, it's here! But! There is a BONUS... if you re-register by March 11th (Psst! That's this MONDAY already!), there is no registration fee. Nice! After March 11th, a $35 fee must accompany your registration form. So, get that form in and save that money to go out for an ice cream treat with your family... or splurge on some fun snacks for your next movie night! (I might be hungry...) :) 

Ok, here's a little run down of a few things happening soon here at SJS:

Email Newsletter Communication!

We have the Blue Family Folder that comes home bi-weekly with important papers and Principal Johnson's Newsletter. And....The Panther Pulse Blog now has a sister - it's an email! We're starting to send out a weekly Panther Pulse Email with some quick links and bullet points of the important stuff happening in the coming week. If you think you should have received one and did not, please give us a call at the office to request one!  (And if you're on Facebook, please like our School Facebook page)


Our Admissions Tab will have a few important pages to visit for re-registering (welcome back!) or registering for the first time (welcome!). If you have any questions, please give Mrs. Johnson a call at (716) 937-9483.

Don't Miss It! If you re-register by (this) MONDAYMarch 11th, there is no registration fee

Pre-K 4 Parents that are registering for Kindergarten: Please contact your home district and follow their protocol for registration in your district. All Kindergartners must be registered with their home district! Also, make sure to fill out a Transportation request form

Our First Panther Pulse Blog Post!

We are so excited to begin using this central form of communication for a "one-stop" resource for all the things happening this week at St. John's School! Parents will begin receiving a weekly "Panther Pulse" email with a quick and bulleted list of all the important stuff to pay close attention to and act on for the week. This email will have many links to make it easier to find the programs and highlights we are spotlighting, and this blog will be one of those links! Here we can go into more detail on the public stories, events and happenings at our School. Check back each week to keep updated - and thanks for being a part of our School Family and surrounding Community!
