Mission Statement

St. John’s School is a Christ-centered learning community that prepares each student to be a successful life-long learner. We provide opportunities that promote the development of every student’s unique gifts and talents, empowering each child to become a responsible, respectful, and caring citizen who lives the faith. The school assists the parents in their role as the main educators of their children, offering a complete education, both secular and religious. It is governed by the policies and principles of the Catholic Diocese of Lincoln, accredited by the Nebraska Department of Education, and overseen by the parish pastor as superintendent, and by the school principal. St. John’s is a preschool through 8th -grade school.


To accomplish the Mission Statement, our goals and objectives include:

  1. To pass on the Catholic faith through the Mass, Sacraments, and by being Christ-like role models.
  2. To develop a positive family environment where students, parents, faculty, and staff feel accepted, respected, and valued.
  3. To develop communication and cooperation between administration, faculty, students, and parents.
  4. To establish an atmosphere with Christ-like expectations of conduct and high academic standards.
  5. To encourage the children to be aware of and develop the goodness and talents God has given them.
  6. To offer the best curriculum utilizing the benefits of past techniques while incorporating new ideas after careful consideration and research to form a program in which each teacher is comfortable (staying within curriculum guidelines).

Our goal is to make sure that children and parents are safe during drop-off and pick-up times from school.  Please see the flow chart in the appendix.  This procedure creates a safe traffic flow for students and parents and moves traffic off Vine Street quickly to alleviate congestion and to reduce the possibility of accidents.  Drop off/pick up areas are to the east and south side of the school.  Students will enter the east double doors. The main entrance on the north will remain locked and will not be used for drop off/pick up times.  Please do not exit back onto Vine Street during the drop-off/pick up times.  Everyone's cooperation is needed.  

St John's is now using Dennis Uniform for uniform orders. All uniform companies offered by St. John’s in the past (Dickies, Elderwear, A+ Apparel) are all allowed to be worn moving forward.  You may continue to purchase Dickies items through Walmart, Amazon, etc. Please see Dennis Welcome Kit for more information.
