The Dale Jenkins Gymnasium was overflowing with memories, music and good cheer on Saturday, September 16, as the school community came together to celebrate its 55th anniversary. Speakers included Senator Dennis G. Rodriguez, Jr., Michael Ysrael, President of the St. John’s Board of Trustees, as well as Robert Kelley, Assistant Head of School and Patricia Bennett, Head of School. They were joined by over 250 guests, including SJS alumni, parents, faculty and staff, and community members.
The evening featured the special talents of the performing and visual arts students, with musical entertainment from the 1960s to the 2000s. Specially made student artwork for the event was auctioned off, with the highlight of the night being the collaborative upper school Variations on a Latte framed piece which sold for $15,000.
The special occasion provided a rare opportunity to gather and thank everyone who contributed to the success of St. John’s School and supported the school’s mission for the past 55 years.
All proceeds from Saturday’s evening will go towards improvements of the school’s fine arts programs with plans to build a performing arts center on campus.
