Community Programs

Whether you’re a grandparent or a St. John Alumnus or anyone who loves kids, there are several easy ways you can support our school. 

Box Tops for Education

The whole family can help clip Box Tops from specific grocery products.  Each one is worth $0.10, and many Box Tops all add up to valuable dollars for our school.  For more information, visit

Labels for Education

Labels for Education is a fun and easy program where families and members of the community work together to “Earn Free Stuff” for our school!  By collecting UPCs and beverage/sauce caps from over 2,500 participating products, supplementing our earnings through the e-Labels for Education program and with bonus offers, our school earns points that can be redeemed for Arts, Athletics, and Academics merchandise.  Visit for more information.

Tuition Support

St. John has a tuition assistance program in place to assist families.  If the Lord has blessed you financially, we welcome your donation.  Checks should be made out to St. John Lutheran School, specifically designated “Tuition Assistance”.  This is a tax deductible gift, and you will receive a letter recognizing your donation.  (Members of St. John Lutheran Church are welcome to make a donation by way of their blue designated offering envelope, labeled “Tuition Assistance Fund”.  In that case, the gift will be included in your offering statement at the end of the calendar year.)

School fundraisers

During the school year, parents of St. John Lutheran School may participate in various fundraisers. While we hope that all will participate, it is by no means required. Funds that are raised are used to enhance our school curriculum or to support special projects.

School Auction (biennial)

Every other year, St. John hosts an auction, with the proceeds benefiting St. John Lutheran School. Goods and services are donated by local merchants, school families, and members of the congregation, and are offered in both silent and live auction format.  It is a great evening of fellowship and excitement – all to benefit the school!


Magazine Sale

Early in the school year, St. John holds a QSP magazine drive. All new subscriptions and renewals generate valuable funds for our school.  Online ordering is easy and convenient.  Visit for more information. 


St. John participates in the Scrip program, which allows families to purchase  gift cards to restaurants, groceries stores, gas stations and retail stores, at face value.  St. John receives a discount, and a percentage of the difference is applied to the family's tuition account.  Click here to learn more about our Scrip program.
