SAYBROOK TOWNSHIP —
Saylor has received nothing but positive feedback from students and staff. Math teacher Sister Sally Huston said, “I've heard that Mr. Saylor brings many gifts to our school. Although he's much different from our previous English teacher Jennifer Allan, Mr. Saylor is a great addition to our school!”
As 10th-grade student Jacob Emerson walked to class he said, “He is a great teacher. I really enjoy his class.”
In the spring of 2013, students had their first lunch in the new cafeteria. Students said leaving the basement, where they had previously been having lunch while the addition was under construction, was bittersweet after having eaten there for almost a year. The Heralds were apprehensive about transitioning to the new space.
Junior Ben Czuchra said, “I think it's a major upgrade and advancement for our school, plus it’s air conditioned!”
Not only has the addition served as a great cafeteria, but it has held several other occasions such as the reception for the National Honor Society induction this year, a Mass before school began, and the 2013 prom. The school looks forward to getting more use from the new addition and continuing to enjoy pasta Wednesdays.
School president Sister Maureen Burke reiterates that St. John will continue to progress not only in student organizations, clubs and revitalizing the new St. John location, but in all facets.
