Letter from School Leadership
Welcome to St. Joseph School. I hope that as you navigate our website you will see what a wonderful school SJS is and how your child could learn and grow with us. As a National Blue Ribbon School, St. Joseph School continues to strive for academic excellence through a spirit of collaboration.
The mission of St. Joseph School is to embrace the whole child in a Catholic, faith-filled learning environment of academic excellence. In partnership with the student’s family and the parish community, the school helps each student grow spiritually, intellectually, morally, and socially in pursuit of his or her individual potential.
Through God’s word, the school guides its students to becoming dynamic members of the Catholic faith community. The school’s purpose, melding the spiritual with stellar academics, is embodied in a myriad of ways including service opportunities at every grade level, prayer and worship to begin and end every day, regular Mass attendance with entire student body, middle school speaker series, academic competitions, school and parish sports teams, and many other programs.
Expectations for students are high and mainly are reinforced through positive behavior incentives in every classroom. The school’s motto of “Respect, Serve Others, Have a Positive Attitude, and Show Responsibility” or ROAR is ingrained in every student from kindergarten through middle school.
If you are not currently part of the St. Joseph School community, we hope our website will provide you a glimpse into our school. We know that choosing a school for your family is an important decision and if we can assist you in any way, please do not hesitate to let us know. We hope you will browse our website as an introduction to our school and programs. We welcome you to attend one of our Open House dates or any school event to experience the presence of SJS.
Thank you for your interest in St. Joseph School.
