Principal’s News 9.5.19

Good afternoon St. Joseph’s Families,

What a busy week we have had here at St. Joseph’s! We had a beautiful Mass on Tuesday unveiling our Saint for the 2019-2020 school year – Saint Kateri. Fr. Mariusz is back from Poland and will be blessing our entire school and each individual classroom tomorrow morning. 

Here is a little more information on Saint Kateri. According to Catholic Online, St. Kateri Tekakwitha is the first Native American to be recognized as a saint by the Catholic Church. She was born in 1656, in the Mohawk village of Ossernenon. 

She was a model of Christian Life and helped the elderly and sick. She saw in nature a reflection of God’s glory and beauty. 

Just a reminder, student supervision begins at 7:30 AM each school day. Please do not drop students off earlier as no one is available to supervise the children before 7:30.

Academic Excellence

Classes are off to a great start this year. I am continuing my walk through observations and learning about all the great things going on in our school. We are truly blessed in so many ways!

I want to let you know that my door is always open to address any questions or concerns you might have. Please feel free to email me at  or call and set up a time for us to meet.
