Students present computer programming results
Fifth grader Jack Sieben presented the code for his computer programming project called Castle Siege.

Fifth and sixth graders at St. John the Baptist School in Vermillion presented their computer programming projects as part of the school's new Maker Program. The students designed, coded, tested and iterated the programs over the past four weeks. During the unit, the students learned the basics of computer programming, including how to program in Javascript and Scratch languages. The resulting programs included games and animations that showcased the students' creativity and diligence. Students now are working on the next unit, graphic design.

St. John's: a tradition
of academic excellence

St. John the Baptist Catholic School is fully accredited by the Minnesota Non-Public School Accrediting Association. The parochial school has been part of the Vermillion community for more than 50 years and has a long tradition of academic excellence. During that time, numerous families have witnessed three generations of students proudly graduate and then perform exceptionally well at Hastings Middle School and Hastings High School, a continuing testimony to the school's quality education. Parishioners have firmly supported their school since they began building it in 1957. In October 2005, a new $1.1 million, 8,200-square-foot addition was completed. The addition includes a new classroom/science room, library/music room, conference room, a large community room and office space.

We provide busing farther than you think

Our busing service was expanded in 2012. With the encouragement of Superintendent Tim Collins, our parish and school purchased "add-on" service to our already-existing Hastings School District bus service. This additional service helps us reach the communities of Vermillion Township, Marshan Township, portions of Ravenna Township, Miesville, New Trier, Hampton and far eastern parts of Empire Township. It is provided by the Hastings Bus Company, and services only St. John the Baptist School students in grades K-6. Parents are encouraged to contact parent volunteer Julie Strommen with any questions.
