Welcome to St. John the Baptist School in Kenmore! My primary goal is to create a premier and secure environment to educate the mind, body, and spirit of a child. I am proud of the many accomplishments achieved and the objectives we’ve established to ensure our vibrant and steadfast future. From our academic successes to our works of faith, the St. John’s School community embraces Christ’s command to use our talents wisely while loving our neighbors.
Recently, St. John’s has completed two significant capital improvements to its facilities. The beautiful outdoor walkway has enriched the campus grounds creating a welcoming respite for our students and neighbors. And, the installation of SMART Boards in every classroom ensures the faculty is equipped with state-of-the-art tools to deliver today’s demanding curriculum. These upgrades and others are made possible by the generous support of our alums, parishioners, parents, and community.
Our success is the direct result of the collaboration of many. I enjoy the complete support of our pastor, Rev. Michael Parker, a fervent advocate of furthering Catholic education at St. John’s. I am indebted to our loyal parishioners and alums for their continued support of this vital ministry. I am blessed to work with an amazing, creative faculty who exhibit passion, perseverance and patience. I am grateful to our parents who make the commitment to partner with us in educating their child. But without a doubt, I am most proud of our relationship with the children: we are so blessed to share in the lives of these young hearts.
In my nearly forty years in Catholic education, with certainty I can say our St. John’s community is second to none. We have had some mighty dreams, from tangible goals such as connecting the school to Klauder Hall, to more subtle objectives of molding minds and hearts. Our dreams have become a reality. And, we have many more tomorrows in our future. And so, I invite you to partner with us and to make a commitment to our St. John’s community. Together, let us work together as we prepare today’s children for brilliant and bright tomorrows.
Mrs. Jenny Bainbridge
