Each year our faculty engages in a sports competition against our 8th graders; this year they will be playing volleyball! Proceeds from the game, and the sale of t-shirts, will benefit the Alagille Syndrome Alliance in memory of A.J. Koller. A.J.'s mother, Melanie, is our Preschool Director. Melanie's son, A.J., earned his angel wings in September of last year after valiantly battling this syndrome for 9 years. The 8th grade/faculty game is always an exciting event, and we hope that you will all come out to support it. An entry fee of $5.00 for the game will be collected at the door to the gym. Please remember that all students must have a supervising adult with them. For the safety of our students, no unsupervised students may attend the game. Hope to see you there!
St. John's OASIS students perform at Disney!
Members of St. John's OASIS Musical Theatre Ensemble became stars of their own Disney show on January 30, when they performed at the Waterside Stage at Downtown Disney in Orlando, Fla. The ensemble traveled to Disney resort to take part in the Disney Performing Arts Program, where they entertained hundreds of guests, under the direction of Andrew Baughman. "Walt Disney World's college program is a professional entry point for many young artists," Mr. Baughman said. "It was really exciting for our students to get to go backstage at Disney and experience performing in their professional venue. This was the group's second visit to the resort with the 25-year-old Disney Performing Arts. Program. The St. John's group was selected from vocal, instrumental and dance ensembles around the world that apply to perform at Disney resorts.
