Catholic Schools Week 2022

Saint John the Evangelist School

St. John the Evangelist: A Community of Faith, Excellence, and Service.

Please join us for our annual celebration of National Catholic Schools Week, beginning Sunday, January 30. The theme “Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.” highlights our focus on faith development, academic excellence, and dedication to community service. We’ve planned a variety of events to show how we’re doing this as a community at St. John the Evangelist.

Sunday, January 30: Celebrating Our Parish

Sunday, Jan. 30 we celebrate our Parish by devoting a Mass to Catholic education! Our students may represent the school by wearing their uniforms to mass. Students participate in the liturgy of the Word and will bring up the gifts. We thank the parishioners for their support.

Monday, January 31: Celebrating Our Community

Twin Day. To encourage a sense of community, students may dress in matching outfits with a friend.

Students will also work on a project to recognize parents and supporters. The projects will be displayed in the school.

Tuesday, February 1: Celebrating Our Students

Wacky Day. Without our children-the heart of St. John the Evangelist School-where would we be? On this day students wear a mismatching assortment of clothes and accessories.

Students will also get to enjoy a movie in the afternoon.

Day of Giving. We are excited to once again partner with FACTS and the NCEA to be part of Many Gifts, One Nation: A Day of Giving to Catholic Schools. We encourage you to help our school and community by participating with us starting at Noon on Feb. 1, 2022! Donations received will go towards facility and technology upgrades.
