Why a Catholic Education Matters
Catholic Education is crucial to the development and catechesis of our young people today. It provides an environment which emphasizes high academic standards with a strong emphasis on developing the whole child. Catholic Education recognizes the importance of supporting the academic, social and spiritual needs of all of our students.
I choose to work at St. Joseph School because I enjoy the close family atmosphere, the strong parental support and the opportunity to share my faith in the context of my daily work as a teacher.

Third Grade News
We continue to be very busy in Third Grade. We have just wrapped up our Science Unit on Astronomy. The children loved learning about the Solar System and the various planets. Our next Science unit will be on Weather and Climate. We will be incorporating the new science standards as we complete the various inquiry based activities. This will include building a model of the water cycle! We continue to develop our skills in reading and writing as we work towards meeting the common core standards for third grade. Our current Social Studies Unit is the study of Mexico, our neighbors to the south.
We are very excited to have our Chrome Books for each student as we integrate technology across the curriculum. The children have been making great progress with the I Ready reading and math program. This program can be used at school and at home to provide extra instruction in these areas.
In our religion class, we continue to learn about God’s love for us and how we are called to love one another. We will be beginning our preparation for the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through the celebration of the season of Advent.
I wanted to thank you all for attending our parent/ teacher conference day. It was great to discuss your child’s progress and to answer any questions you may have had. As always, my door is open throughout the year to meet anytime.
Thank you all for your continued support!
