The Elementary School of Saint John the Evangelist School is a wonderful environment in which the students learn as much about themselves and the world around them as they do the fundamentals of grammar and arithmetic. The classrooms are comfortable and arranged to make each child feel at ease and at home, thus helping each student more easily engage in the learning process. Our dedicated elementary staff prides itself on individual attention, and our staff goes that extra mile to commnunicate with parents.
We are proud of our teaching staff, which works hard to meet the needs of the student. These teachers often volunteer time outside of the classroom to help meet the students' needs, and are always looking for ways to improve the learning experience of their students. Every year, Saint John the Evangelist School continues to maintain a staff that consists of qualified and dedicated teachers whose main priority is to enhance our students' learning experience, academic performance, and Catholic faith formation.

After-School Program at Saint John the Evangelist School:
SJS offers a fun, safe, and stimulating after-school option with our very popular "Fun Club" Program. "Fun Club" meets every day from 3:00-5:30, and is in operation for the entire school year. The goal of our after-school program is to provide a kind, creative, and educational environment where children will be happy and well cared for. Children will be given the opportunity to exercise, create arts & crafts, complete homework, and play with friends.
All SJS students are welcome. Children requiring full-time care will be given first consideration. For part-time use of the program, we ask that the school be notified that morning. There is a yearly non-refundable registration fee (per family) which must accompany the registration. Please provide your child with his or her own snack. A weekly bill will be sent home on Monday. Be sure to keep your receipt for tax purposes.
The program operates on all school days from dismissal until 5:30pm. If school dismisses early because of inclement weather, parents will be notified through School Reach that there is no after-school program that day.
