Help Fund the Fun!

Every school needs a playground, an essential component of every child’s school experience. We are calling on our community to help us transform our paved play area into an exciting play and learning environment for our children.

St. Joseph’s School is in the advanced planning stages for a new multi-purpose playground and community recreation area on the school campus. We call it PLAYTOPIA! This amazing project is long overdue and will be a major benefit to the St. Joseph’s and St. John’s Cathedral communities!

Highlights of St. Joseph’s Playtopia will include:

  • Address campus safety through the correction of major precipitation drainage issues
  • Provide green space and play spaces designed to encourage creativity, build strength and support social activities for students of all ages

We will need $500,000 to break ground. The St. Joseph’s Parents Association has pledged $100,000 to just start the fundraising process. In addition, we have $34,000 remaining from the 2018 & 2019 Campus Improvements Fund-a-Need Paddle Raises from previous Crab Feed auctions. The 2020 Crab Feed Paddle Raise drew $68,050! Another $80,000 has been raised since the announcement of the project.

Any donation you make now will be used to help drive the momentum to fully fund this wonderful and worthwhile capital campaign.

Be Part of History!

To highlight our Catholic Identity, there will be a beautiful cross near the entrance to the school – this will be made from brick pavers that we are selling to our community. To be part of the St. Joseph’s legacy, a brick can be purchased and engraved with your family name or the names of your children. Please download the Playtopia Brick Order Form to reserve your brick today!


We have raised $22,500 on brick sales so far.
