The Family Club serves to provide community building opportunities for our families and encourage creative curricular and co-curricular experiences for our students. Our Family Club is made up of every parent in the school, including YOU!

When we err, we acknowledge the mistake and seek to make amends.Below are examples of Family Club activities:Valentines Candy Grams
This hit with our students, is another small and simple fundraiser that our students seem to LOVE! For only $1 you and/or your children can send a Valentine Candy Gram (message with candy attached) to their classmates, older or younger "buddies, teachers and grandparents. Each year the Family Club packages and sells over 1500 candy grams, proving that love is alive and well at St. John's. This is a fun way to earn some of your volunteer hours.
Teacher Appreciation Week
Held during the 2nd week in May, Teacher Appreciation Week is the week we give back to our great teachers. Starting with a Morning Tea on the Monday, a show of love is planned for each day of the week, including a gourmet lunch prepared lovingly by volunteers. You will receive a flyer in plenty of time explaining what is planned for each day with suggestions on how you can help your child show that they love and appreciate their teachers as well as opportunities to assist the Family Club throughout the week.
Probably the busiest and ongoing area in which Family Club supports it's school. From coffee and donuts on the 1st day of school, treats at Back to School Night, treats for students to celebrate their involvement in a valued ministry, Open House's, all the way through the year to Teacher Appreciation Week and also the last day of school, there are many opportunities for parents to provide a snack here, drink there and always set-up and take down.
