Catholic Schools Week: 1/31 - 2/6
Great Kindness Challenge
This past week was Dignity Health’s Great Kindness Challenge. Students engaged in special activities during the week and the 7th and 8th grade students performed skits for the younger grades during the week highlighting good character. We participated in a fundraiser called “Coins for Kenya” to build a schoolhouse in Kenya, and we created a kindness chain that stretched around our gym displaying random acts and statements of kindness. This chain will be on display this coming week for Catholic Schools Week.
School Mass: 1/31 @ 9 AM
We launched our endowment campaign this past week at St. Joseph School. The goal is to increase our endowment funds by three million. The Fitzpatrick Family donated one million to establish this new endowment. All funds stay local in supporting Catholic Education at St. Joseph School. If you would like more information about the endowment campaign please see one of us after Mass.
Tuna Drive 1/12-2/3
As one of the acts of mercy during Catholic Schools week we are sponsoring a canned food/ tuna drive. The students have collected hundreds of cans for the needy. The drive ends this Wednesday. If you are willing to contribute to the drive please consider dropping off cans at St. Joseph School. We divide up the cans to a variety of worthy local charities.
Education Fair: 2/3 @ 5:30 - 7:00
We invite all members of our community to our “Open House” event in the SJS gymnasium. Student work will be on display and the upper grades will be entertaining visitors as figures from history. This is a wonderful opportunity to recognize our students during this school community social.
