8.16.19 – Welcome Back to School!

Welcome Back to School!

Good afternoon to all St. Joseph’s Families,

It was great meeting many of our families at the supply drop off this afternoon! I am so excited to begin the 2019-2020 school year at St. Joseph’s Catholic School. I look forward to serving the St. Joe’s community; the faculty and staff, students, parents, pastor and school board members. It is a true privilege to be here. 

After School Pick Up Change

Safety of our students and staff is my first priority as principal of our school. Strengthening our Faith and Academic Excellence are of next importance. 

A safety concern has been raised with so many people in the building toward the end of our school day; in addition, we must maintain a quiet, positive learning environment for all of our students. At 3:00 o’clock, during the 2019-2020 School year, we ask kindergarten through 2nd grade parents to pick up children outside on the west side of the playground. Classes will be lined up with their teacher and will be dismissed once the parent (or older sibling) picks up the child. Third – Eighth grade students will be dismissed and be to the east side of the playground (same as last year). Thank you in advance for helping with this important safety adjustment.

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 emericht@stjoes.com  or call and set up a time for us to meet. Thank you for your commitment and investment in your child’s/children’s education.
