Veteran’s Day Flag Sales will take place this year beginning on November 5th. Flags will be $5.00 a piece. You may choose to take a flag or have the flag staked on our school/parish grounds to honor our veterans. 8th grade students will be available at dismissal to sell the flags or you may send an envelope to school with your donation and name and we will make sure a flag is sent home. Anyone choosing to have a flag staked may ask for the veteran’s name to be acknowledged on the flag. You may send your loved ones name in an envelope or to ktessier@stjohnacademy.org. The 8th grade will be placing the flags on the grounds beginning November 8th.
