    books

    Each of our students has textbooks and other items to return to school, and teachers have items to return to students from their desks.  We would like to complete this process during the week of June 8.
     
    We have created a schedule for parents of different grades to drive up to the front of the school on Gould Street, park their cars, and make this transfer with their teachers in the front yard of the school.  (Please note that this is a modification to the process in our preliminary announcement last week.)  
     
    Parents are asked to wear masks and maintain social distance during this process.  If you have child(ren) in your car with you, they must remain in the car.
     
    • Monday, June 8
      • Noon to 2 p.m. - Grade 2
    • Tuesday, June 9
      • 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. - Grades 6-8*
    • Wednesday, June 10
      • 8 - 10 a.m. - Grade 1
      • 10 - noon - Grade 4
      • Noon to 2 p.m. - Grade 3
    • Thursday, June 11
      • 8 - 10 a.m. - Grade 5
      • 10 a.m. - noon - Kindergarten
     
    *Families that have other students not in the middle school may also drop off and pick up items during the middle school time.  A Middle School sign-up genius will be circulated by Mrs. Arulraj on Monday, June 1.
     
    If the above times are not convenient for you, please contact your child's teacher to make other arrangements.
     
    Early Childhood Program teachers will be in touch with ECP families with different arrangements.
     
    If you have not done so already, this would be a great opportunity to return any library books to the marked bin on the porch of the convent.
     
    Thank you for your cooperation!  We are looking forward to a smooth and safe process!  Please contact Mrs. Flynn with any questions.

  • Remote Announcements by Grade 8

    Posted by Siobhan Murphy on 5/26/2020

    saints

    The students of Saint Joseph School have been greeted daily with a "Remote Prayer" email sponsored by Grade 8 throughout this pandemic!

    Amidst preparing for high school, serving Christian Service hours, and enjoying time with their Kindergarten buddies, eighth graders also play an important leadership role at Saint Joseph School.
     
    One of their responsibilities is to lead morning prayer daily over the public announcement system. In this important role, the students read about the Saint of the Day, lead the Pledge of Allegiance, and wish birthday greetings to other students.
     
    Remotely, this role was not lost! Each student has rotated through the weeks and written about their assigned "Daily Saint" for an English short writing assignment. They have explored the saint's life, works, and importance. A few examples of the "days" are included here.  
     
    Thank you to our eighth graders for your continuing leadership!  We love you and we appreciate your devotion to our faith and our community!

  • Thank You Letters to Our COVID Heroes!

    Posted by Siobhan Murphy on 5/26/2020

    ty

    During the last nine weeks, the students and teachers have done their part by staying home to flatten the curve and lessen the impact of COVID-19.
     
    We remain in the comfort of our homes while others, risking their lives, are on the frontlines during this pandemic.
     
    In a short writing assignment, the middle school students expressed their gratitude, show their support, and give encouragement to nurses, doctors, medical workers, and all essential workers who are keeping our country supplied with necessities.  Examples of some of the letters are above.
     
    Over the next few weeks, we will personally thank all our SJS community members who are on the frontlines. God bless them all!
