The St. John School is one of the most notable ways we are able to minister to the children of our community, and we could not do it without the support of our many volunteers. Serving on the PTO, working a booth at the Carnival, and attending/serving at the Auction are all ways you can support this ministry of education…you don’t even have to be a school parent to help!
