Good afternoon St. Joseph’s Families,

Tomorrow is the end of the first quarter. We have had a successful start to our school year. We are so blessed to have our students in school and learning and growing in spirit, mind, and body. We all work together as a team to lift up and support our students each day in our Catholic school environment.

Fr. Mariusz and I met and have decided to extend the mask requirement through Wednesday, December 22nd – end of 2nd quarter. While our hospitals are in a critical crisis of care, it is important to take this necessary precaution. In addition, our COVID positivity numbers have remained low but possible exposures have increased over the last few weeks. As promised, we will continue to monitor the health of our St. Joseph’s community and adjust accordingly.

You should have received an email from your child’s teacher to schedule parent/teacher conferences the evening of Wednesday, October 20 and during the day on Thursday, October 21st.

Important Dates to Add to your calendar:

  • Friday, October 15th – end of first quarter – noon dismissal (No After Care)
  • No school – Thursday, October 21st and 22nd – Parent/Teacher conferences
  • Wednesday, October 20 in the evening and Thursday, October 21st are parent teacher conferences
  • Wednesday, October 20th – School Advisory Board Meeting at 5:00 pm in the Riffle Center
  • Monday, October 25th – Friday, October 29th – Red Ribbon Week
  • Monday, November 1st – All Saint’s Day – School Mass

Mass

On Tuesday, October 19th, our 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th grade students will attend Mass in the Cathedral – all other classes will watch the Mass live streamed into the classroom. Mrs. Weaver’s 5th grade class is hosting Mass. Mass dress is required for all students and staff. Because we have made the adjustment, only half of the students are at Mass and are able to socially distance, Mass attendance is required. Parents are invited to join us at Mass.

St. John’s Cathedral Parish

St. Joseph’s Catholic School is the parish school of St. John’s Cathedral. St. John’s financially supports St. Joseph’s each year. The parish’s financial contribution subsidizes the education of every Catholic child in our school. They are committed to helping us in Catholic formation for our teachers and students. We are blessed to have such a supportive partnership with St. John’s. Please partner with St. Joseph’s and St. John’s in the faith formation of your child by praying together as a family, participating in the sacraments, and attending Mass on Sundays.

COVID Response

Just a reminder, please follow our school illness policy below if your child is experiencing any illness. We will continue to monitor and adjust as needed for the health and safety of our school community. Our goal is to continue to provide in person learning. Thank you all for your support and patience as we navigate the 2021-2022 school year!

Please follow these guidelines to prevent the spread of illness in our school:

Accreditation-Self Study

St. Joseph’s is going through our self-study for our school accreditation during the 2021-2022 school year. We are using the framework from the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools – the NSBECS. There are four Standards that are included in our self-study:

  • Mission and Catholic Identity
  • Governance and Leadership
  • Academic Excellence
  • Operational Vitality

This is such a great opportunity for us to evaluate our school from the lens of a National Catholic school framework. We also will focus on the Defining Characteristics of a Catholic School. Our mission and Catholic Identity will be a primary focus – we will be sending out surveys at the end October to get stakeholder input from parents, staff and students.

We are Hiring

Substitute Teachers

We would like to add more people to our substitute list. Currently, we have eight people who are available to help out. We have run into several situations already this year where we have not had someone to substitute. In many cases, those schools who have had to temporarily close this year have been due to teacher absence. If you think this is a position you might be interested in – please see the application on our school website.

As we continue the year of St. Joseph, we offer homage and thanksgiving for all we have!

Good Afternoon St. Joseph’s Families,

Thank you to those of you who were able to attend St. Joseph’s Fall Carnival! It was a great event, and I am so glad we were able to come together as a school community – it was needed! Thank you to Anita Miller and Kendall Mooney for all your hard work in putting this event together for our school community!

We have finished MAP testing and will be printing off those reports to share with you at parent/teacher conferences. It is hard to believe we only have two weeks left in the first quarter. Our teachers are doing a great job engaging students in all content areas- they are working hard. Our students are working hard too!

Important Dates to Add to your Calendar:

  • Friday, October 1st – Catholic Educators Conference – No school
  • Tuesday, October 12th – SJPA meeting at 3:15
  • Friday, October 15th – end of first quarter – noon dismissal
  • Thursday, October 21st and Friday, October 22nd are parent teacher conferences
  • K-5th grade teachers will be sending out a questionnaire about options of virtual or in -person conferences.

Parents, in order to continue to provide in-person learning we need all families to keep children home (including siblings) if anyone in the household is sick and follow our illness policy. So far, we have had low positive COVID infections at St. Joe’s, but we are seeing more students exposed outside of school.  In addition, the area where we need help from our community is in substitute teachers, most schools who have had to close their doors for a period of time has been due to teacher illness or quarantine. If you would be willing to substitute, please click on this link for our substitute application.

Mass

Attending Mass is of paramount importance in our Catholic Faith. As a Catholic School, attendance at our weekly Mass is an integral part of our faith formation for our students.  On Tuesday, October 5th, our 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th grade students will attend Mass in the Cathedral – all other classes will watch the Mass live streamed into the classroom. Mr. Yanci’s class is hosting Mass. Mass dress is required for all students and staff. Because we have made the adjustment, only half of the students are at Mass and are able to socially distance, Mass attendance is required. Parents are invited to join us at Mass.

The Parish mission has been a wonderful event for our Catholic community – Fr. John Burns shared his faith with us. Please click on the St. John’s Facebook page to watch the videos.

Becoming Catholic

Every year our Cathedral is blessed to have students and parents from St. Joseph’s School who express the desire to join the Catholic Church. We have a program at the parish, the Right of Christian Initiation for Children, that will begin on October 1, 2021. Please let us know by that date if your child who is not Catholic would like to participate.

  1. We will have a deadline of October 1, 2021, to identify children who would like to spend the year discerning becoming Catholic at which point if they appear to be sufficiently prepared, they will enter at the Easter Vigil 2022, celebrated by Bishop Peter Christensen.
  2. The process of RCIA adapted for children is based on the Church’s belief that one enters the Church in one of 2 ways: either as an infant (usually up to approximately age 5- before the age of reason sets in) through the Rite of Baptism for Children, OR when a child reaches catechetical age (usually around 6 or 7 years of age) through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Children.  Children who have reached the age of reason always receive all the sacraments of initiation at the same time. Those who are validly baptized in other Christian denominations (we call them candidates) make the profession of faith and receive the sacraments of the Eucharist and Confirmation, and those who are not baptized receive three sacraments: Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist; they are called catechumens. Some questions a child may ask who has reached this stage are Who is God? How do I pray? Can we go to Church? In other words, a child who is capable of nurturing and receiving a personal faith and who recognizes an obligation in conscience.
  3. A child must have either strong parental support or a faithfully practicing Catholic friend or family member who will see that the child is able to participate in the Sunday liturgy each week.

Our 7th grade students are attending MOSS this week – this experiential learning week is such a great opportunity for our students! This is usually reserved for 6th grade students.
