Cabbage Patch Kids

Cabbage Patch Kids

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

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.

The 2016-2017 School Year Begins!

The 2016-2017 School Year Begins!

St. John the Baptist School is excited about the start of the 2016-2017 school year. On Wednesday, September 7th we welcomed back both returning and new teachers as well as faculty, staff and students.  We are very excited about continuing our STREAM program here at St. Johns. STREAM refers to Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics with the focus being on creativity, complex thinking and fun. Various grades will be working with the following Stream Modules: PEAP (Primary Engineering Adventure Program), Arcade Academy, Invention Convention, Kitchen Chemistry and Robotics. Teachers and students are eager to begin this interactive program which will help them to integrate all these areas of learning into the curriculum. Students will learn how to work together to accomplish their goal. These projects will become a part of our Exhibition Night. This year we will continue our Character Council program here at St. John's. We are thrilled to announce that our Pre-K 4 class is at full capacity this year and currently has a waiting list.
