Science and Fine Arts Fair- Update

The annual Fall Science and Fine Arts Fair is history! This event is held at Luther High School each fall and gives our students opportunities to showcase their God-given talents in the areas of vocal performance, spelling, math, chess, art creation and crafting. 

 Gabe was our chess competitor. He won his first match, but an unfortunate nudge of his bishop cost him his second match. 

 Audrey, Kayleigh, Joelle, Gabe, Michael, Elijah, Isabella, and Orion competed in the spelling bees. 

 Our mathematicians were involved in both individual competition and team competitions. Both our 7th-8th and 5th-6th teams placed second in the competition. Members included Orion, Emma , Michael , Elijah, Gabe, Joelle,  Kayleigh, and Emma crunched the numbers. 

 Quite a few students performed vocal solos ranging from the hymn “How Great Thou Art” to the classic song “What a Wonderful World”. 

 St. John's was well represented in the band concert. Members included Faithe, Mike, Elijah, Claire, Emma, and Nick. They are part of the Sabre and Lancer bands.

 As always, a large number of inventive art and craft creations were judged. Our students brought home many ribbons and all used their abilities to the glory of God!




2017 Fall Costume Party (Updated)

Several smiles were seen at St. John's during our Fall Costume Party last week. The children had a wonderful time dressing up in their favorite costume, playing games, and of course, munching on candy! Please click on the graphic and visit the photo gallery for more pictures of the day. Many thanks to Kayleigh for creating the video.



In the first and second grade classroom, Word A Day has become a favorite activity for every student.  Recently, Tessa made a colorful poster showing her word, "hot air balloon".  Next, a little science reader was shared with the class and a large hot air balloon was hung in the classroom. The children love to remember new words in a fun way!


Peace Poster Winner


 Each fall, our local Lions Club sponsors a poster contest. The theme of the contest was “The Future of Peace”. This year, one student, Elijah Hoppe, drew an image that reflected the idea of world peace. HIs poster depicts joined hands on a globe with a dove. 

As our school’s first-place winner, Elijah will be awarded a $100.00 prize from the Lions. His poster will also be forwarded on to district judging.

Well done, Elijah!


Fire Prevention Week

 This past week students in PreK-6 grade had lessons about fire safety. The Lewiston Volunteer Fire Department conducted lessons to help the children understand the importance of fire safety. PreK students received a visit from the firemen, K-2 grade visited the fire station, grades 3-4 went through the smoke trailer, and the 5-6 learned more about proper use of a fire extinguisher. Finally, students had a school fire drill and discussed proper procedures around the building.

 This year’s fire prevention theme: “Every Second Counts,Plan 2 Ways Out,” reminds us to not only change our batteries in the smoke alarms but to replace older smoke alarms. St. John’s would like to thank the Lewiston Fire Department for your continued service to our school and community. We have a few pictures from the week’s presentations. Please go to the Photo Gallery for some nice pictures taken by Heather Buege!
