St. Joseph School House Program Builds Community
In 2010, St. Joseph School introduced the House Program for grades K-8. This unique program is designed to foster a school-wide, competitive, enthusiastic, and proud atmosphere where students feel connected to the school community and one another! Each house consists of a team of students grades (K-8) and a leadership team of two to three faculty, staff and students. Each house, which is described below, has their own mascots, colors and slogans. Houses earn merit points for community service, academic and non-academic competitions, and demonstrations of good character. Through monthly meetings and shared activities, students, faculty and staff work together to promote positive citizenship and an appreciation for diverse talents and abilities.
