Good afternoon St. Joseph’s Families,

Happy Thursday! I want to take a moment to share my gratitude for all of our St. Joseph’s Community – I am so grateful for our faculty, staff, students and parents! I am blessed to be a part of this wonderful community. Happy Thanksgiving and God’s blessings to ALL- 

We are looking forward to our Grandparent’s Mass on Tuesday, November 26th. We will have grandparents meet grandchildren in the Cathedral at 8:20 (kindergarten will meet in the gym) – classroom teachers will be sending an email with more details! 

Uniform reminder – no shorts after Thanksgiving break! 

Weather: As the temperatures get colder, please help your child remember to bring a coat. We will be outside in the morning before school as long as the temperature is above 30 degrees – otherwise, we will be in the cafeteria. For morning and lunch recess, we will be outside with a temperature of 25 degrees or higher. 

Our Student of the Month focus for the month of November based on our School-Wide Learning Expectations is Academic ExcellenceSt. Joseph’s students give their best! They work hard to be responsible, joyful and creative in their studies. We will recognize our November students of the month after Mass on Tuesday, December 3rd

Upcoming dates to mark on your calendars:

  • Grandparent’s Mass on Tuesday, November 26th. This is a great way for our students to connect with grandparents and show their appreciation of family!
  • Student of the Month on Tuesday, December 3rd – Academic Excellence Focus
  • Christmas Concert on Tuesday December 10th at 6:30 PM
  • End of 2nd quarter on Friday, December 20th – half day!

Happy Thanksgiving to all – enjoy time with your family!!
