CLARK, NJ – Parents and students gathered outside of St. John the Apostle School on Thursday morning to meet new teachers and catch up with old friends.   Dr. Deborah Egan Ed.D, welcomed the crowd to the new school year.   

 “Saint John the Apostle School is pleased to welcome back its student body and parents for the 2019-2020 school year,” said Egan.  “Over the summer, many upgrades were made to our campus including a new parking lot, additional chrome books for classrooms, and expanded materials for our Maker Space area in our library. Our maintenance staff worked diligently to clean and prepare each and every classroom,” she added. “You can’t help but be impressed.  Teachers have been working to organize their classrooms and sort the newly purchased books and materials.” 

Soon after, parents snapped last photos and set off as children headed into the school.   Hallways were bustling again after a summer’s silence as students filled classrooms to begin first day activities.
