Christmas Card Art Contest
St. John is pleased to announce that the annual Christmas Card Contest is officially open! We invite current students to create an original work of religious themed art, with the winning piece being used for the school's Christmas card. Lower grades will have the opportunity to work on their piece in art class, while upper grades can create on their own time. Deadline is TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21ST. Please look to the link for rules and further details. We cannot wait to see your masterpieces!
Social Studies News
The students are beginning a new unit in social studies, we are studying the geopgrpahy, history, government, and economy of our great state of Arizona. This unit will prepare us for our field trip to the state capital in February. The tests for this unit will consist of a series vocabulary words. The students will write down the words along with the definitions in class, this will be their study guide. A good way for them to study is to make "old school" flash cards or they can make flash cards on Quizlet. We will also creat a virtual Tour of Arizona that I will share on this website for all families to view.
