St. Joseph School teachers welcome and encourage communication with families regarding all aspects of a student's development.
Why a Catholic Education Matters
As I continue to grow in my own faith, I find it very powerful to hear first graders understand and experience how their prayers impact them and others. It is also amazing to hear them pray for others around the world and to show compassion for others who are suffering on a personal and global level.
I had been looking for a full-time teaching position when my father told me about the ad at St. Joseph School. He graduated from St. Joseph School and was a life long member of St. Joseph Church. I applied the next day, was interviewed and offered the position. That December my Dad died, but his love and lessons about Jesus Christ continue to guide me on this journey. I appreciate and treasure my job as I know how important God's mission is to our world. I've had many experiences through my family and the children at St. Joseph School which confirm in my mind and spirit that this is where God wants me to continue this mission.

Welcome to kindergarten. I'm excited to welcome our new students to our St. Joseph School family.
As we begin our year together the children will work on completing their morning routine independently. During our morning greeting the children welcome each other and offer a peaceful, friendly handshake.
During the next few months we will begin lessons that include: Creation, the Holy Family, prayers, the alphabet, letter and sound recognition, number, shape and color recognition, counting, graphing, the months, days of the week, calendar activities, tracing and writing their names and letters of the alphabet, classroom rules, citizenship, leadership, responding to text, the life cycle of a butterfly, apples, and develop technology skills.
The children will also participate in daily recess, weekly physical education, Spanish, music, art, library, and technology.
We are looking forward to partnering with our fifth grade buddies to develop reading and listening skills. We also work together on projects.
We have a busy, fun filled year ahead and we are ready to go.
