St. John the Baptist Catholic School is committed to continuous commitment to Catholic identity.
At the request of our pastor, the school board spent a year long study on this topic. Issues that were explored were:
The efforts included board education on the topic and the relationship to current happenings within the school. At the conclusion of the year, the school board presented the principal with a report outlining its findings
This year we have an early dismissal on day a month for the faculty to have faith formation in the form of a book study conducted by the pastor. Faculty prayer groups and other in-services continue to promote a deeper understanding and background for teachers in our school.
Students continue to experience a faith filled school experience. Our students pray throughout the day, focus on different Gospel values in religion classes and are expected to strive to live like Christ in their dealings with one another.
Parents are encouraged to participate in ministries at the parish and receive monthly newsletters to assist with faith formation in the home. The school is planning one or more evenings where a speaker is brought in to discuss and encourage continued awareness of the role of the parent as the primary person who hands on the faith.
