Friday, August 23 – Meet the Teacher and Used Uniform Sale
This day provides you and your child the opportunity to meet teachers, visit classrooms and drop off classroom supplies. The classrooms will be open for visits between 1-3 pm.
The Uniform Sale will also take place between 1-3 pm. Uniform Dress Code Our school uniform exemplifies students’ pride in being a part of the St. John Community. We firmly believe that having all students wear a school uniform creates a sense of belonging. By showing that we expect high standards with our uniform, expectations are raised and students respond with better behavior and better results in the classroom. Please note that the uniform policy will be strictly enforced this year.

Background Checks – Policies for School Parent Volunteers
As part of the diocesan initiative to maintain a safe environment for our children, all volunteers with “substantial contact” with children are required to complete a background check prior to working in the school and to complete a four hour VIRTUS training session. This includes parents who wish to attend field trips or volunteer in support of classroom activities. Parents are encouraged to complete the online Arlington Diocese Background Check promptly.
