Tradition and community are words often used to describe the unique atmosphere students, families, staff, alumni, and friends enjoy at St. John Berchmans Catholic School.
The PTC and Marketing Committee coordinates a number of special events to honor our traditions, build community, and support the mission of our school. These special events are great ways for us to gather together, and we rely on a large number of volunteers to make these events exciting and fun!
