Raise the Paddle

We are truly grateful for the support the St. John community has given us in the past.  Because of people like you, we are able to fulfill our mission and, through Fair Share, be the most accessible Catholic school in Seattle.  As you know, the unexpected expenses of the pandemic have created stress on the St. John operating budget, with COVID-related costs totaling more than $100,000.  These expenses were necessary to return students to on-campus learning while ensuring that the safety of our teachers, staff, and students remained paramount.

As our auction will be virtual, with a shorter program than when held in person, we would love to have your commitment prior to the auction date.  This will allow us to showcase the generosity of our community and thank all those who are giving to St. John to ensure that our school can continue to be an inclusive Catholic community, inspiring moral development, academic excellence and the courage to act for the common good.
