2016-2017 ANNUAL FUND

Lights, water, facility maintenance, teacher salaries, benefits. Have you guessed what all of these
have in common? They are all necessities at St. John’s School that are not covered by tuition.
Where would we be without basic operating facilities? What are we without our teachers? By
donating to the Annual Fund, YOU close the gap between tuition and the cost to educate!
Every penny you give advances the mission of St. John’s far beyond the bricks and mortar
of our building and continues the charism of our founders, the Sisters of Mercy. Because
of you, St. John the Evangelist can offer an education centered on Jesus and built on
the tenets of leadership, scholarship and service to others. We thank the following
