Why a Catholic Education Matters
I feel it is important to teach the whole child including mind, body, and soul. At St. Joseph school, the administration is very supportive and I feel I am trusted to do what is best for each child. The parents are an important part of school life.

My Alternative to Elf on the Shelf is George,the shepherd. Everyday George is in a different place in our classroom with a new Bible verse to remind us that without Jesus there would be no Christmas. The kids have been having fun looking for him each day. When they get home at night, see if they remember where George was and what the Bible verse was about.
Thursday , St. Nicholas left us a surprise in our stockings. We made a Bishop’s Miter Christmas tree ornament to remind us of St. Nicholas, the Saint who became Santa Claus.
The Christmas Pageant was a huge success. Thank you for making time in your busy schedule so your children could participate in this beautiful tribute to Our Lord!
