St. John's Episcopal School

Welcome, New St. John’s Families!

We are very excited to have you join our community, and we look forward to getting to know your whole family.  As a new family, you will be receiving a large packet of information from us via regular mail in the next few weeks; however, on this page you’ll find additional information which will be helpful over the coming months. We want your transition to be a smooth one, so please never hesitate to contact us with questions. Below is a list of people who can help with your questions:

Tom Stevens – Head of School
Sharon Rippen – Associate Head of School
Margaret Curry – Director of Admissions (admissions, grade info, parent connections, and anything else)
Kathy Schneider – Director of Finance (financial and tuition information)
Holly Constantine – Office Manager (general information, health forms, address changes)
Brenda Martinez – Administrative Assistant
Brad Child – Director of Facilities (carpool information, emergency information)
Paula Liscinsky – Director of Extended Day
Kim Hutcherson – Athletic Director (P.E. and sports information)

In addition, you will be contacted periodically by current parents, and over the summer your child’s grade-specific Room Parents will reach out to you. There will be opportunities prior to the first day of school to connect with the students and parents in your child’s grade. We want you to feel comfortable and connected to St. John’s even before you walk through our doors as a new family.
