Dear Parents and Alumni,
Remember when we complained about the ice storms! Well, now we are clutching onto our iced drinks! We hope your summer has had some elements of refreshment and relaxation. Something really COOL we have been busy preparing for is St. John School’s 50th anniversary!!! This is the year of the Eagles!
Our first day of school is Friday, August 14th. St. John’s will kick off its 50th anniversary at our opening school Mass on Wednesday, August 19th. Bishop Olson will be here to celebrate Mass with us and State Representative Stephanie Klick to present an official proclamation from the Texas State Legislature commemorating St. John the Apostle School and its 50 years of Catholic tradition and educational excellence to our parish and local communities.
As St. John wrote in the book of Revelation 21:5, “Behold, I am making all things new”, we have been doing the same here at the school. This includes recharging our spiritual and academic batteries and making improvements to the school buildings and grounds. Plus, we have our school accreditation this year in October, a new strategic plan for the school and a Master Plan for the parish and school. We are preparing for the next 50 years!
More importantly, as we celebrate our 50 years in the coming months let us reflect on all the blessings that we have received and hopefully the many we have given. With God’s grace may St. John School continue to be a beacon of Catholic education for another 50 years as we sing in our school song, On Eagle’s Wings, “And he will raise you up on eagle’s wings, bear you up on the breath of dawn, make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of his hand.”
May He truly hold you in the palm of His hand,
