Good afternoon St. Joe’s School Community,

This week we practiced safety procedures for various emergencies.  Please take a few moments at your dinner table tonight, to ask your child about “a lockdown” and “shelter/secure in place”. Your child should also be able to describe to you the meaning of “fight, flight, or hide” in case there is an intruder on school premises (for that matter, any public area).

It is always a pleasure to share Mass with school parents.  If you have time after Mass this Monday (9/19), please join Amanda and me for a cup of coffee in the parish hall. “Coffee with the Admin Team” is once a month and a great way for us to learn more about each other.

If you can’t make the coffee, plan on “a glass of wine with the admin team” at the Fall Carnival, Saturday, September 24!  We are just days away from this fun community event.  A big shout out to our St. Joe’s Fall Carnival event coordinators, Meredith Fehringer and Shahayla Anderson, for the countless hours they have committed toward this family fun event and school fundraiser.

Since “Back to School Night”, the comment “ALL IN” has been shared with me at morning drop off, as a salutation on a parent email, and shouted from a passing car as I ride my bike to work.  I love it!  “ALL IN” signifies the commitment and dedication every stakeholder has toward St. Joe’s.   SJPA now has “ALL IN” apparel.  Check it out https://saintjoesallin2022.itemorder.com/

Students may wear the “ALL IN” shirts on spirit wear Fridays.
