St. John School on PBS
St. John School was featured on KTWU’s Sunflower Journeys as part of a larger story about the Kansas Association for Conservation and Environmental Education (KACEE) and outdoor education. The school is highlighted during the first eight minutes (along with some other KACEE projects). There is some great footage of the SJ Student Green Team planting the gardens that were donated by Westar Energy last spring. See the video below!

St. John Benefit Auction
The Auction is the largest fundraiser for our school and November 22 is just 2 months away! Buy your tickets now by completing the Bill My Account form in the newsletter or emailing us at email@example.com. EVERYONE who purchases a ticket by October 22 will have a chance to win $100 to spend at the auction.
Your purchase of an auction ticket is the simplest way to support the auction. Your $100 dollar ticket not only shows monetary support, but your presence at the auction tells our community this is important. Once you have done that, don’t forget to think of items to donate. Our wish list includes: an I-Pad Air, timeshares, hotel rooms in Omaha, St. Louis, and Chicago, concert tickets, sporting tickets, jewelry, Christmas items, games. Let us know your ideas and we can turn your auction donation into thousands of dollars for the school. Of course, cash and checks are always welcome!
Remember all your donations are tax-deductible and due by October 22. Items are coming in everyday – it’s already a party in our office. We can’t wait to see what you add to the fun!
