Volunteer Background Checks
As a school, we do background checks on any parent or adult volunteer. This year, we are using a new company to facilitate the investigation. We chose this company because the application process is all done online, making it quicker and more secure. If you plan to volunteer in any way this year, please read the attached document and use the link to access the application.
ENROLLMENT FOR NEXT YEAR OPENS OCTOBER 1
On Thursday, October 1, St. John’s Lutheran School begins accepting applications for the 2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR. This is a great opportunity to get your child’s name on the waiting list. Visit the ADMISSIONS tab above for more information and to download applications.
2016-2017 Dress Code
The documents below describe the planned dress code for the 2016-17 school year. THIS IS NOT THE DRESS CODE FOR THIS SCHOOL YEAR. It includes the Dress Code along with the specific items from Lands’ End as well as the optional items you will be able to purchase from Target or Old Navy. The purpose of giving you access to this dress code a year in advance is to help in any long term planning as you purchase items you hope you child can wear for multiple years.
Scrip-The easiest fundraiser we have
What is Scrip? Great Lakes Scrip Center explains it as “fundraising while you shop”. We sell many of the same gift cards you would purchase at retail outlets. Great Lakes Scrip has over 500 of the country’s biggest brands: Safeway, Lucky’s , Starbucks, Peets, Whole Foods, Chevron, Shell, Amazon.com, Gap, Macy’s, Ulta, Under Armour, Pier One, J Crew and so much more. We also have local vendors such as Browns Valley Market, Vallergas, Monticello Deli and Andie’s Café. Check out our “in house” listing as well as go to glscrip.com and view everything available thru their retailer’s list.
How it works: We place our orders on Tuesday mornings so that you will receive your cards by the weekend, usually Thursday afternoon. We sell the cards at face value and purchase the cards at the rebate (discount) assigned by each vendor.
Benefits: At St. John’s we offer Scrip as a way to reduce your family’s annual tuition. Currently*, a commitment of $3,000.00 in Scrip purchases will give your family a $100.00 annual tuition discount. A commitment of $5,000.00 in Scrip purchases will give your family a $200.00 annual tuition discount. Our Scrip year is May 1-April 30th. Yes, Scrip is available during the summer.
Once all discounts are paid back to the Tuition Fund the remaining monies go to our A.P.T. (Association of Parents and Teachers). These monies are used to support our students in many activities such as our Art program, Physical Ed program, Spanish and Technology.
Who can participate? Everyone!! All families at St. John’s, friends, extended family are encouraged to purchase Scrip throughout the year. Come into the school office during normal school hours and see Cindy Zeller. Cash, Check and Visa/Mastercard accepted.
