Cabbage Patch Kids

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

Students in Third Grade at St. John's, Alden received a free cabbage plant from Bonnie Plants in April. The President and CEO of Bonnie Plants, Stan Cope, states, "The joy of gardening and the satisfaction of growing healthy food are gifts kids never outgrow. We're grateful for the opportunity to share these gifts with the next generation of gardeners."  After carefully caring for his plant all summer, a photo of Brandon's 9 lb. cabbage was submitted to be included in a random drawing for a $1,000 scholarship and statewide recognition.  Good luck!

21st Century Learning at St. John's School

Monday, September 19, 2016

As a continuous effort to enhance student learning of 21st century skills and as a commitment to STREAM, St. John’s in Alden has invested in Chromebooks to compliment their existing technology. The Chromebooks will be assigned to every 5th thru 8th grade student. The Google Classroom app will be used to receive and submit assignments, take practice tests, share ideas and communicate with teachers and other students regarding schoolwork. They will have easy access to word processors, presentation tools, and numerous educational applications. Students can also reference the internet for research and informational purposes. Additionally, while the Chromebooks remain at school at the end of the day, students can submit homework and continue to access the school day’s materials from home, thanks to working in “the Cloud.”

4th grade students will each be assigned an iPad and the lower grades will use i Pads for some centers.

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.
