Flying High Pizza Fun Night

PTO has teamed up with Flying High in Countryside for Flying High Pizza Fun Night. Kids can enjoy a three-hour block of fun, games, and activities lead by the Flying High staff.  This is a drop-off event; parents are not expected to stay.  This is not a St. John’s Only event, please share with friends and family.  The more kids, the more we raise for our school!  Click here for registration details.

Mom’s feel free to drop kids off at Flying High and join us for Mom’s Night Out!

McDonald’s Night

McDonald’s Family Night supports the Accelerated Reader (AR) program at St. John’s School.  St. John’s will earn 20% of all food and beverage sales during designated St. John’s hours at the
Countryside McDonald’s (5701 S. La Grange Road).  It’s a fun opportunity to interact with other families and participate in a raffle for great prizes while supporting reading for our school.

Can’t stop in for dinner?  No problem- visit the drive-thru during those hours and the sales will still go to St. John’s!  Share with friends and family too.

October 24: 5:00pm – 7:00pm

April 24: 5:00pm – 7:00pm

Original Works

St. John’s PTO has teamed up with Original Works to offer a really unique fundraising opportunity.  The children create a special piece of artwork which is then turned into a magnet to be previewed by their families.  Families may choose to purchase the magnet as well as order a variety of useful objects (such as notebooks, tote bags, mugs, and keychains to name a few) featuring their child’s artwork.
Our fundraising dates are scheduled so items may be used as Christmas gifts for friends and family.

Original Works dates for 2016-17

October 6: Artwork completed

November 1: Preview magnets are sent home

November 9: Family orders are due

December 12: Families receive their products
