Good afternoon! We hope you are having a relaxing and rejuvenating Thanksgiving break. Here are this week's news and announcements from St. Johns Country Day School:
Food Pantry Donations
Many thanks to everyone who donated food for the Lower School Student Government Food Drive to benefit the Food Pantry of Green Cove Springs. The Food Pantry picked up the food last Thursday-- thank you for helping us make a difference this holiday season!
Thank you, Parents!

St. Johns Preview Night
St. Johns Preview Night is tomorrow-- Wednesday, November 29, 2017, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.. Child care will be available, and no reservations are needed.
Preview Night is intended for parents of Spartans in all grades. There will be specific breakout sessions featuring Q & A for parents of students in Kindergarten, Grade 5, and Grade 8 and on the 2018-2019 new academic initiatives-- Heinrich Fellowship, St. Johns Fellowship and Foundations Program. Additionally, representatives will be available to give tours and discuss all of St. Johns offerings including arts, athletics, college counseling, the Merit Scholarship program, and more. You won't want to miss this interactive opportunity to learn about "College Prep, Redefined!"
Chapel Oak Area Improvements
The work to the Chapel Oak area is coming right along! The new stage and seating are complete-- just waiting for some stain. Work is still underway on the path and entry gate upgrades. If you've been on campus over the past week or so, you've seen the big holes and the traffic cones! Many thanks to the PTL and to everyone who supported last year's PTL Gala for their support of this project. The results are beautiful!
Florida Bright Futures Service Hours
It's time for seniors to begin turning in community service hours for Florida Bright Futures Scholarship consideration. Community service hours can be earned and turned in at any time prior to graduation, but turning them in early has distinct advantages, for example, seniors who qualify for an award after the first semester of their senior year can lock in their scholarships!
Information about the Florida Bright Futures award levels, qualifications, and benefits is available here. Please reach out to Mrs. Laird with any questions.
We hope you have a great week
