Dear St. John the Apostle School Families,
My name is Tony Arens and I am excited to introduce myself as the new school principal for St. John the Apostle School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead alongside a great staff at a school full of rich and spiritual traditions that strive for excellence in education. I am enthusiastic about joining a great community where we can share our faith, instill virtues, and empower our students to seek their full potential.
I began my educational career right here at St. John the Apostle School in the 2012-2013 school year. I taught health and physical education as well as serving as the athletic director for six years. In 2015, I accepted an additional position in the Diocese of Lincoln, serving as the League Director for the Lincoln Junior High Sports Program, where I managed the collaboration of the 11 Catholic elementary schools, as well as other private and home school organizations. In the 2018-2019 school year, I taught and served at Cathedral of the Risen Christ School in the same positions.
GOTR coaches work directly with girls, leading them through the national Girls on the Run curriculum, teaching them healthy habits and training them for a "practice 5K" at their GOTR site. The season begins on Tuesday, August 27th and runs for 10 weeks. The St. John's group meets Tues and Thurs from 3:30-4:45. At the end of the season, the girls and coaches have the option to participate in the official GOTR 5k race at Air Park on November 2nd.
Please keep tags on clothing and have your children try on uniforms as soon as possible after you receive them so that there will be time to exchange/order if needed before school starts. Please note the store's new location in the West Wing of the school. Enter at the west doors (by the bus), take two right turns, one left and you are there! Any questions, contact:
