CLARK, NJ — Saint John the Apostle School’s sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students commemorated Black History Month this February by learning about the lives of various African Americans throughout history.

The students were tasked with selecting historical figures to read about like Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, and Katherine Johnson. Then they created eye-catching infographics about the individual’s struggles and accomplishments to teach others about that person’s life. These visuals included pictures, drawings and others graphics and are being displayed in the school’s hallways.  The public can also view the students’ work on the  Saint John the Apostle YouTube channel.  

Saint John the Apostle School is a faith-centered academic community based on the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.  They are committed to serve all regardless of race, nationality or religion.  To prepare students to be responsible adults in an ever-changing world, their goal is to focus on academic excellence as well as instill spiritual, moral and social values.    Call the school office at 732-388-1360 for additional information or visit their website at www.sjanj.org.

CLARK, NJ - There are many ways to reach out to help those in need during this time of pandemic. Two students at St. John the Apostle School recently developed, designed, and delivered an idea on their own.

The sisters, Lucy and Marcella Juncroft saw the suffering of those impacted by the pandemic and wanted to create a remembrance. They decided to make angels to decorate a tree. Marcella writes in her own words…

Junkroft angels

“My sister and I saw the impact Covid-19 had on people this year - some lost their jobs and some lost their lives. We wanted to do something to help and so we spent the summer making ‘memory angels’,” said Marcella. “These angels are ornaments to be sold at our church to commemorate loved ones who have passed away.
 
The girls plan to make and sell them to help those most in need at this time.

“On or near Christmas, a priest will bless all the angles hanging on a special tree outside the church,” Marcella said. “The angels will be selling for $3 and all proceeds will be donated to the parish food bank.”

She continued, “The food bank serves hungry people in our area. We made all the angels out of salt dough, painted them, created tags, and strung ribbon as decoration. We think this is a good idea to help both those who are struggling with putting food on the table and those who are grieving lost loved ones. “

School officials said it was wonderful to see creativity and caring from the youngest members of our community.

Earth Day

The second graders had a blast completing an Earth Day scavenger hunt. They learned about different ways we can help protect our environment. We reviewed the 3 Rs (reduce, reuse, and recycle), and we understand that pollution harms our Earth and makes it dirty. Check out our second-graders in Ms. Montemarano’s class as they did a fantastic job recycling, planting new flowers/vegetables to make our Earth more beautiful, and preventing pollution by picking up garbage. We learned every day could be Earth Day because we love our environment!

Monster Picture

Before classes ended for summer, students at St. John the Apostle made some monsters and some new far away friends. Local second and third grade students partnered with students at Shorecrest Elementary School in St. Petersburg, Florida for “The Monster Project.”
According to school officials, students exchanged written descriptions of monsters they created using Google applications. Students were then given the task of re-drawing their far-away partner’s monster without the benefit of seeing the original drawing.
For the closing activity, students revised their writing based on feedback from their partner. Teachers said this project encouraged reading and writing skill development while integrating technology in the classroom. According to the students the best part of all was making new friends in Florida.

SJA Sock drive

Socks, a simple part of getting dressed each day, or is it? Students at St. John the Apostle School found out recently that although they might have a drawer full of them, socks are a much-needed item for many homeless people.
In response to the need, on Tuesday, April 9, the entire student body, from Pre K 3 to the 8th grade, were able to wear jeans to school in exchange for a pair of socks.
The program was carried out in conjunction with Caldwell University’s Campus Ministry Team. All the donated socks will be distributed when the university team conducts one of its midnight runs into New York City to aid the homeless.
