Thank you for supporting Saint John School!
Trees & Trimmings, Saint John School's annual Christmas Market, was held on Saturday, December 5th from 8am-1:30pm.
Despite high wind, heavy rains, and the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020’s version of Trees and Trimmings was a success. Local patrons loyally supported the event despite the adverse conditions. The curbside pick-up option was well received by the high-risk members of our community. Volunteers worked tirelessly to ensure our beloved tradition not only continued, but did so while also achieving our financial and community building goals.
Thank you for supporting our online events, including the Calendar and Toy Raffles, as well as the Wreaths & Greens Pre-sale. Selling through our website allowed us to expand the reach throughout our community while allowing families and friends to support the school from the comforts of their own homes. The online initiative concluded with a Zoom call Saturday, where we saw many happy faces as the Toy Raffle winners were announced!
Thank you to our Saint John School Community, parishioners, and our local neighbors. Thank you for braving the rain and cold to keep the tradition alive, and supporting our school and Catholic Education.
Thank you to our faculty, administration, and clergy. In many schools teaching is a job. At St. John School, teaching is a vocation. We are blessed and inspired by your tireless dedication to the school, our children and our families.
Thank you to our many SJS Parent Volunteers and families. Thank you for donating your time, talent and treasure for helping this event happen safely, amidst a pandemic and a Nor'easter.
