Welcome to SJNCS

From our Principal:

Dear Families, 

Welcome to another beautiful school year. I am excited and feel extremely blessed to be a part of St. John Neumann Catholic School (SJNCS). Thank you for choosing SJNCS for your children. 

As the year unfolds, please keep in mind that we are all in this together. The staff has been working very hard to be ready for your children to have a fun, faith-filled rigorous learning experience.  It is a true team at SJNCS all working for God’s glory!  

My prayer is for each person to feel welcome and loved each day here at SJNCS.  Please add our staff, students, and families to your prayers for a wonderful school year full of growth in mind, body, and spirit.
