Fest 5k 2021 logo.jpeg

Put on your gym shoes and join us for the SJE 5K run or 1 mile fun walk on Saturday, August 7, 2021 at 7:45 AM. This year 100% of the proceeds from the event will go towards St. John the Evangelist School with the goal of helping to
raise funds for the renovation of classrooms. This event cannot be a success without your help! 

  • Go to and sign up your family, friends, neighbors, etc. to walk or run in the event. Each participant that signs up by July 18, 2021 is guaranteed a race day t-shirt that can also double as spirit wear.

  • Make the event even more successful by contacting Kellee Wyzgowski at and sign up to sponsor the event. Sponsorship levels start as low as $100.

  • We need volunteers! Contact Katie Hurey at and start earning those precious volunteer hours for the 2021-2022 school year.


This year we will also have a contest between each grade. The grade with the most student participants at the race will receive a NUT day next school year. We look forward kicking off the 2021-2022 school year with this wonderful event.

St. John the Evangelist Educational Foundation


The purpose of the Educational Foundation is to assist the school in its commitment to provide state-of-the-art technology and educational programs for its students. The Foundation is responsible for maintaining an endowment, investing funds for use in the operation of the school while keeping the principle intact and providing support for fundraising activities.

The St. John the Evangelist Educational Foundation invites parents, grandparents, local businesses and individuals who value Catholic education to help ensure St. John the Evangelist School's presence for generations to come. Gifts to the Foundation are welcome from individuals, families, and corporations. Donations can be made through personal trusts, annuities, stock, real estate, life insurance, or even a bequest in a will. For more information on how you can help "unlock the future" for our children through Catholic education, contact Mrs. Sara Forrester at 219-765-8506 or or a member of the Educational Foundation Board.

Race for Education St. John the Evangelist School

Race is a walk for students held during school day that helps raise funds to enrich our students' academic experience. Money raised from the event has contributed toward the purchase of Promethean Boards, new textbooks, remodeled bathrooms, and many school projects. This year we are raising funds for updated math curriculum textbooks, participation in academic competitions, launching a National Junior Honor Society and a new laminator and copier for teachers. Each school family is asked to submit contact info for 5 potential sponsors.

Thank you to all who supported the 2020 Race for Education.  We were able to raise approximately $40,000 to support SJE School!  We look forward to 2021 and hope everything will be back to normal soon.  God bless!

Spring Fling St. John the Evangelist

Spring Fling is an elegant gala, attended by over 500 people from our parish and community, and includes a plated dinner, open bar, live entertainment, dancing, live and silent auctions, raffles and games. Besides attending the event in May, we ask for your help NOW in the following ways!

Become a Sponsor or Partner

Spring Fling sponsors and partners help underwrite the expenses for Spring Fling. In exchange, sponsors receive advertising exposure before, during, and after the event to more than 4,000 consumers in the parish, school and surrounding St. John community.

Become a Donor

Many items are needed for the live and silent auctions, raffles and games. Think of Spring Fling while Christmas shopping or if you receive unwanted gifts!

  • Local date nights, girls' night outs, and nights on the town

  • Getaways/vacations for couples, families, and/or friends

  • Family Fun, father/son or mother/daughter experiences

  • Home maintenance, repair and/or improvement packages

  • Technology, accessories and services for "plugged in" packages

  • Exciting/one of a kind experiences: for example, day with local news crew or ride with police

  • Use of condominiums / vacation homes
