Principal’s Post 3.14.19


Mass

Thank you to Mrs. Patrick’s class for their leadership with liturgy at Mass on Ash Wednesday.  This week Deacon O’Neill challenges us to use the Our Father prayer to lead us through Lent.  We thank all of you who joined us for Mass.  Please know, all are welcome each week.

Student Safety

We ran a relocation drill Tuesday, March 12.  We were able to move all students within 5 minutes to one of our alternative locations should the need ever arise.

Link to Momo Awareness

Link to an article from a safety committee that St. Joseph’s is using information and concepts from to inform and guide the plans and procedures for St. Joseph’s Catholic School.

See something, say something.  I would like to remind and urge everyone if you see something out of place, please report it to the Office as soon as possible.  It is much better to be safe and say something than to worry about it.

For information on our current terminology and practice, please refer to our

Safety Parent Letter.

Bravely act like a Saint today!

We are blessed to have a loving and supportive community.  As a Catholic community, we hold ourselves to a higher standard.  When you see someone in our community going above and beyond leading by example and bravely acting like a saint, please let me know using the following link.
