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.

The 6th graders are learning about Advent. They had a guest speaker, Mr. Pillo, come to the class to share his knowledge about Advent with the students. The students are also going to make ornaments for our Jesse Tree and write a paragraph describing what the symbols represent. I'm also going to have the students begin planning the Masses for the month of December and January. After Advent and Christmas the students are going to learn about Abraham, Jacob, the Israelites journey to Egypt, and how God rescues the Israelites from slavery.
The 7th graders are also learning about Advent. They had a guest speaker, Mr. Pillo, come to class to share his knowledge about Advent with the students. We will continue talking about Advent in the weeks to come. After Christmas, the students will learn about Jesus' mission, the apostles and Mary, Baptism and Confirmation, and parables Jesus told and miracles he performed.
The 8th graders are learning about Advent. They, too, had Mr. Pillo come in to class to talk to the them about Advent. Like the 6th and 7th graders, they will continue learning about Advent in the weeks to come. After Christmas, the students are going to learn about the four marks of the Church: one, holy, Catholic, and apostolic.
