St. John’s School is currently working to develop the SJS Alumni Association. We hope to hear from former St. John’s students and parents. Our goal is to renew those friendships that have been such an important part of the rich history of St. John’s School. We hope that our website will be a tool to enable our alumni to stay up to date with each other and the school.

St. John's School Tiki-Rific Bazaar

The St. John’s Tiki-Rific Bazaar, sponsored by CHI St. Vincent, was fun for the entire family. Chairman Becky Houston began last summer planning for a great and profitable event. The day began at 10:00 A.M. with the opening of the children’s shop. The silent auction lasted from 11:00 A.M.—8:00 P.M.. Lunch was provided this year by the Men of Mary, from St. Mary of the Springs Catholic Church. It was delicious as always. The Bazaar would not be complete without the wonderful spaghetti dinner provided by the Knights of Columbus.

The Bazaar raised over $85,000. These funds will be used to enable St. John’s School to continue to offer the opportunity of an excellent Catholic education in the Hot Springs area. Plans are now underway for the 2018 Bazaar, to be held on Friday, October 26, 2018. We hope to see you there!!
