    Dear St. Joseph School Families,

    Words (not even mega words), will ever be able to adequately express our thanks for your kindness and incredible generosity to both of us. We have been showered by your love ever since January when Richard was first diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma. I thought that I would be taking care of Richard for a while, but I did not realize that within a month I would be diagnosed myself with endometrial carcinoma sarcoma.

    I was able to have an operation at Massachusetts General Hospital, but the pathology report showed that I would need extensive chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Richard‘s bile duct liver cancer is inoperable and unfortunately his chemotherapy has caused several severe infections so the doctor is deciding if that should be canceled. Our two children, both graduates of St. Joseph School, have been helping us out as much as they can while they still work full-time and are raising young families of their own. Saint Joseph school community, which has been my family for 47 years, has gone above and beyond the call of duty praying for us and providing every kind of assistance needed, especially through all of your emotional support.

    Thank you for your incredible generosity to the “casual for a cause” day and to the 50/50 raffle. Please know how much we appreciate your outpouring of love to us and I will keep all of your families in my prayers that all of you have a “3H”summer, which I teach in third grade means one filled with good Health, Happiness and Holiness.🙏
    Thank you again for EVERYTHING!
    Richard and Jane Ellis

  • Sports Zone 101 Spring & Summer sign up

    Sports Zone 101

    Are your kids looking to hang out with their classmates afterschool?  Do you need them to run around and burn off energy?  Then please consider signing up for Sports Zone!  With the weather getting nicer, Sports Zone is offering multiple programs for St Joes.  



    We are excited to announce that  Sports Zone will be offering an after school program  at Moulton Park (just down the street from the school) exclusively for SJS students for  the Spring! For the first time they will run 2 separate programs simultaneously for us- One for K-4th and one for 5th-8th.  This will allow them to tailor the program better for each age group!

    The Spring session runs on Wednesdays from  4/14-5/26. 

    The children will be checked in at the school and escorted down to the park by a Sports Zone instructor right after school.  All of their instructors will be wearing masks and the children will need to as well when they are not six feet apart. We encourage participating children to pack sneakers and bring a snack and water bottle.  Parent pick up will be at the park (not the school) promptly at 4:00. 

    Please register by Monday 4/11  in order to ensure appropriate staffing. For more information and to register, please click on the link below

    Sports Zone sign up



    Sports Zone is also offering both 1/2 and full day camps throughout the summer for SJS families.  Please click on the link below for more information
