The 2018-2019 Saint John XXIII School Council would like to welcome new and returning families to an exciting school year at St.John! This year is a new beginning in many ways for our community, some of our friends have made the move to OLA, we have new leadership, and new faces on our Parent School Council! We would like to take a moment to introduce ourselves:
Leslie-Anne Oshust – Chair
My name is Leslie-Anne Oshust, I am mom of Autumn (Gr.2) and Blake (3yrs). I am honored to have been challenged with taking on the role of PSC chair this year and excited to learn and grow with our team as we serve our school community! I work in the emergency services field and also recently took on a new role as the Community Restorative Justice Program Manager. In my free time I enjoy keeping busy with my family, camping, napping (essential life skill), and photography. I look forward meeting our St.John families at the various opportunities we will have to bring our community together this year!
Miranda Brun – Vice Chair
My name is Miranda Brun, and I have two kids attending St John XIII, Myelle (Gr. 2), and Cormac (K), plus a new baby. As vice chair of the PSC I am looking forward to working with the school and parents over the next year. I am also the vice chair of the Fort Saskatchewan Public Library board, and I think building community, both in the school and in our city is really important. I am a biochemist, and am accustomed to spending most of my time in an analytical role. This year I am looking forward to spending more time in my volunteer roles, embarrassing my children, and enjoying Fort Saskatchewan’s fantastic trail system. I look forward to working with all the families and staff that make St John XXIII a wonderful school.
Laudith Andruchow – Co-Chair
Hi I am Laudith, mom of 3 wonderful kids at St. John XXIII Catholic School. Sophia ( Grade 4), Daniel (Grade 1) and Thomas (Pre K). I am from Colombia and settled in Fort Saskatchewan 10 years ago. I am excited to be part of the Parent School Council Executive this year.
Vanessa Burns Gillis – Treasurer
This is my 3rd year as school treasurer, I am Mother of 4 boys Brent grade 5 at JPII, Stevie grade 3 here at St. John, Louis 21months old and David 1 month old.
Stephanie McDouglad – Secretary
Hi Everyone - I’m Stephanie McDougald, also known as mom of Samone (Grade 2), Ryker (Pre-K) and wife of Shilo:). When not at home, I'm fortunate to work with the City of Edmonton in Finance, and try to spend as much time outside hiking, biking, camping and enjoy team relay and obstacle course races. I'm looking forward to another great year with the St. John XXIII Family.

St. John XXIII School Spirit Wear
Your St. John XXIII PSC is excited to offer students, staff and families the opportunity to show school pride by sporting some new school spirit wear!
This year we have partnered with the local company Branded Inc. to bring you a selection of comfy clothing sporting our school logo. Samples of all sizes will be available to try on in the school office until March 16th at which time ordering will be closed. You can place your order online through the Hot Lunch Ordering system and logging in to your existing account, or creating a new one. If you would prefer to not order online, you can order by filling in the form below and sending it to the office with cash or cheque made payable to Elk Island Catholic Schools.
Some very important information from your Saint John XXIII School Council (SC).
Please know that as a parent you are automatically a member of our SC. It is a wonderful opportunity to collaborate with other parents, teachers and administration to identify and support initiatives that benefit our students, as well as stay informed about what is happening in the school. We meet once a month and have chosen to vary the day and time of the week to try and accommodate everyone’s busy schedule. I’d like to introduce you to your PSC Executive for 2018/2019, please feel free to approach any of them if you have any questions or concerns:
