Good afternoon St. Joe’s parents,

We are in full swing here at St. Joes and let me tell you, everyone: students, teachers, support staff, admin and parents are ALL IN! This is one spectacular community. A new St. Joe’s mom said to me at Back to School night, “Wow. This place feels different than any school I have ever been at! Like you can literally feel it when you walk in the door. Everyone is so kind and seems to be looking out for each other.” Randy and I couldn’t agree more!

Please notice the calendar change in October for Parent-Teacher conferences. Students will no have school on Thursday October 20th and Friday October 21st. Teachers will hold conferences from 4pm-8pm on Wednesday the 19th and 8am-8pm on Thursday the 20th. If you are planning to take a long weekend, please make sure that you complete your conference before you leave town. Teachers will not be asked to hold a makeup conference to accommodate travel plans.

Student of the month will be returning this year! We will announce the awards during last Friday’s morning announcements. Students will come to the office and get their award and photo taken. We will display the photos for the month and also publish names in the bulletin as a celebration. Photos will be sent home with the student as a keepsake at the end of the month. Two students from each grade level will be honored every month.

We have tied our character traits to our Saint of Study the Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati:



















Next week our 7th graders are headed to MOSS. Please pray for their safe journey to McCall for this incredible learning experience. We also hope to see you Tuesday for the September SJPA meeting!


We are gathering interest on a middle school trip to Rome. Would you be interested in sending your student next Spring or Summer? Please fill out the interest survey. The trip would cost approximately $3,800 per student and include all flights, hotels, food and tours. There are options for parents to attend as well. This is a preliminary interest survey, if enough interest is generated we will hold a meeting to answer more questions and share information.
