Current & Upcoming Events

Candy Bar Sale - Now Through October 18th (Flyer)

Our biggest fundraiser of the year! We ask that each family sell at least one box per child enrolled in our school, but you can certainly sell as many as you'd like. Fun Fact: The HSA holds a contest for the most boxes sold! (See flyer for details) Again this year, we are selling extremely delicious Gertrude Hawk candy bar variety packs... If you'd like more boxes, you can always visit the School Office and sign any number of boxes out there. In the coming weeks, Families are encouraged to sell at local banks and after Masses at our Church. This allows you to sell boxes SO very quickly with all of the traffic flow! Thank you for all of your effort on this supportive school endeavor... We appreciate you! Questions? Our Co-Chairpersons of this sale would be happy to assist! (Tabatha Hartz, Rita Greis and Angel Donlon - see flyer for contact info)


Tuesday, September 17th - VIRTUS "Protecting God's Children" Workshop

CALLING ALL ADULTS who VOLUNTEER with Children at our School, Parish or anywhere in the Buffalo Diocese (includes new School Parents and Teachers!) - If you have not been through a VIRTUS training seminar yet, please note that St. John's School will be hosting one here on Tuesday, 9/17 at 6pm in the School.

Wondering if you need to take this course and keep up on the following monthly email bulletins? As a School Parent, you're part of the HSA, and will be volunteering for events through the year, so that makes it a yes! You may also be planning to attend classroom parties, room parent activities, field trips, and more - and this certification is necessary for participation in all of the fun that happens throughout the year.

**Any Adult that works with Children in the Diocese, or volunteers as a Parent or Parishioner in any parish can attend this workshop, you don't have to only be a part of St. John's. 

If you have already taken a course, and have been keeping up on the ongoing monthly email bulletins, you do not have to retake this course! This date offers the most convenient opportunity for our School & Parish Family, but any of the seminars can be attended on the Diocese Parish list. To Register or find the current list of “Protecting God’s Children” Workshops: Go to Register Online information or click here for the direct Registration Page.
