Flat Stanley

Flat Stanley

Sunday, December 04, 2016

This year’s second graders at St. John the Baptist School are participating in creating a Flat Stanley Project.  The purpose is to learn about different geographic areas and communities throughout the country.  Each student mailed a Flat Stanley to a relative or friend who lives or travels in a different area.  We were very excited and surprised to receive Stanley’s who traveled to different towns, states and even different countries!  He returned with souvenirs, photographs, postcards and letters to teach us all about the different adventures he has been on.  This was a fun and creative project to get the class excited about learning!

Welcome to St. John the Baptist

St. John’s School is committed to the education of all our students. The children of today are our future, and we, as parents and educators, need to guide and prepare our children to be the adults of tomorrow. High academic standards, a hallmark of Catholic education, mean that our students are challenged intellectually. We expect our students to work to their personal best and strive for excellence in all they do. We encourage them to become aware of their responsibility as citizens and protectors of our environment. Together we share the responsibility of passing on the rich heritage of our Catholic faith and providing the educational excellence each child deserves.
