'Week One', has begun, carrying on the joyful spirit begun with yesterday's first day of school.
In this second day of school, new and returning students at St. John's are emphasising not only their focus on academic excellence and achievement (through some time spent learning the school's 'ESLRs', or Expected Schoolwide Learning Results), but also on community, spirit, and etiquette in school.
Students are spending time together in their Great Houses, learning more about the program as well as designing their own House constitutions, charters, and electing officers. Special House 'pep rallies' have also been staged, among great enthusiasm on the part of our students.
A special section on etiquette has followed, drawing students into a full understanding and appreciation of our emphasis on proper etiquette in school, our attention to our school uniform policy, and our focus on respect and love.
