Why a Catholic Education Matters
I feel a Catholic education is important because it develops the whole person, both academically and spiritually. The reason I choose to work at St. Joseph’s School is because it is a family, friendly environment. Both the families and the faculty are very supportive and wonderful to work with.

I hope everyone had an enjoyable and restful summer. I’m looking forward to another exciting school year. We will continue with our circle prayer on Mondays, our prayer meditation on Wednesdays, and praying the rosary on Fridays. We will also continue our Mass journals on Fridays and planning the Masses as well. Let me share some of the topics we will cover during the first marking period.
In sixth grade you will learn about God’s Revelation, Creation and how God is the source of all life and we are created in his image. You will also learn that we are all stewards of creation and we should take care of this world and everything in it. We will also learn how evil entered the world and how people have suffered as a result of it. On a positive note, we will also learn how God promises to help his people and the patriarchs he chose to do this.
In seventh grade you will learn how God created us to know him and that God is revealed through Scripture. You will also learn about the Blessed Trinity, God’s love for us, God revealing himself in Jesus Christ, and how the Holy Spirit is always present with the Father and Son.
Finally, eighth graders we learn how to nourish God’s gift of faith by responding to God’s love, making moral choices, following God’s laws, loving others, taking care of creation, and respecting others.
