Please join us as we come together to celebrate and support the St. John's Scholarship Fund in its first year at St. John's Nursery School on Saturday, May 17th at 6:30 pm in the Parish Hall.  Hors d'oeuvres, entrees, and desserts will be served.  Food selections will feature the cuisines of Italy, France, and California with wine pairings by Chris Cree of 56 Degree Wine.  There will be a silent auction and a raffle.  Click here for invitation.  


Did you know...
  • That attending a preschool program such as St. John's Nursery School helps prepare children for the social and academic challenges of kindergarten and beyond.
  • That those who attend a preschool program are likely to have a job and are likely to complete a higher degree of education and go to college than those who had not gone to preschool.
  • That for every $1 invested in high-quality preschool, taxpayers save an average of $7 in future costs due to reductions in remedial education costs, increased labor productivity, and a reduction in crime.

The St. John's Scholarship Fund will provide financial assistance to all families in need by offering two to four full scholarships per year.  The Fund will also be available to current families who may need assistance with tuition, lunch bunch, and enrichment costs.


If you would like to volunteer to be part of the event committee, please contact  Blake Putnam
