We are excited to welcome our new music teacher, Mrs. Cataldo. She is an experienced music teacher and is going to be a great fit in our school community!
Greetings! My name is Ann Cataldo. I am excited to be the new music teacher at St. John the Baptist School! I am a native of the Green Bay area. My family includes my husband and our two kids, ages four and seven. We are members of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish in west Green Bay where we live. I serve as a piano accompanist on the music ministry team there. I have music education degrees from St. Norbert College (BM) and the University of St. Thomas (MA) and 18 years of experience as a music teacher. I have worked part time for the past six years so that I can also spend more time at home with our kids. My family loves going to concerts, being active outside and playing games. I am looking forward to meeting everyone in the St. John’s family!
We are excited to add an additional fourth-grade teacher this school year. Please join me in Welcoming Mrs. DeCleene!
“Hello! My name is Katie DeCleene, and I am overjoyed to join the St. John the Baptist School family. I will be teaching fourth grade at SJB. My Bachelor’s degree is in Elementary Education with a minor in Family and Child Studies. Over the past eight years, I have taught in the classroom—seven of those years with the Green Bay Area Public Schools, and a year in Kimberly. Most of my experience is teaching in fourth grade.
My husband Matthew and I have two children, Morgan is six years old, and Kevin is three. Morgan will also be joining the St. John the Baptist’s School family, as a first grader this school year! We are parish members at St. Mary Parish in De Pere. In our home, we pray daily for the Lord to guide us and lead us. We are so excited that the Lord led our family to St. John the Baptist School! In our free time, we enjoy spending time with family at the cottage, and the kids love playing outside.
We are looking forward to a wonderful school year at SJB!”
During the time of virtual learning in the spring of 2020, band director, Mr. Stranz continued to offer band lessons to students using video conferencing tools. Additionally, Mr. Stranz worked with our middle school students to record and publish a digital recording of “Be Still My Soul.” Click the embedded video below to hear the recording.
Each year, St. John the Baptist concludes the school year with an awards ceremony. This year, we published four videos in lieu of the in-person ceremony. Watch these videos to see the great work our students do get recognized.
