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 Unit on Chemistry. The children loved learning about the elements on the Periodic Table. We will be making our own instruments as part of our STREAM academy this month as we culminate our study of Sound. Our next Science unit will be on physics. 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 a new Chrome Book 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, which is new for all students this year.
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 focusing on our kindness challenge in the coming months. We will be finding new ways to show kindness to others.
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!
