Thank you students and parents for your great participation

in St. John’s 140th anniversary worship. We know you gave

extra effort to attend. The students’ song added a

wonderful addition to this celebration.


Thank you everyone who participated and helped with last

week’s Fall Family Festival. A great time of Christian

fellowship was had by all. The staff is especially grateful

for the wonderful help cleaning up. We were leaving the

facilities at 8:30 A.M. Again thank you!

An evening session of “Rachel’s Challenge” is being

offered for the community at Centennial beginning

at 6:30 P.M. on Tuesday, October 28. “Rachel’s

Challenge” is a series of student empowering programs

and strategies that equip students and adults to

combat bullying and feelings of isolation and despair

by creating a culture of kindness and compassion.

Monday, November 17th.
