Programs and Services
St. John Catholic Elementary School offers many programs and services to meet the individual needs of all of our students.
Our popular Breakfast Program serves approximately 150 students a day, and begins the first week of school. The Breakfast Program is funded by the Foods for Kids program and through donations. Donations of apples, oranges, bananas, marble cheese, apple juice, bread, bagels and margarine are gratefully accepted, and help to keep our students nourished and ready to learn.
The program is open to all students and runs out of the school's basement from 8:40 a.m to 8:50 a.m. for students who walk to school, and from 8:50 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. for students who arrive by bus. The program is staffed by volunteers who promote healthy living, value a healthy breakfast, and who are willing to donate one to two hours of their time in the morning. If you are available to volunteer on a weekday morning, please give the school a call and speak with our co-ordinator, Lisa Evans, at (705) 745-4113, Monday to Friday between 8:00 and 4:00.
