What School are St. John Parents True To?
The results from last week’s poll are in!  St. John School bleeds purple and gold in more ways than one.  Over 35% of the votes were for UW Huskies – more than WSU, Gonzaga, Oregon and OSU combined!  Thank you for your responses.  We’ll have a new poll in next week’s Auction email.

Planning is well under way for this year’s school Auction, “Be True to Your School” on April 3, 2020.  Auction guidebooks were sent home with your family’s youngest student last week.  This guidebook has important Auction dates, helpful hints for procurement, and auction forms. Auction forms and the guidebook can also be found here.
