Re-enrollment is completed through your ParentsWeb account on RenWeb. New students and new siblings will need to complete an application  through the admissions process on our SJS webpage.

Thank you,

Dear Friend of Saint Joseph School:

We cordially invite you to join us at this year’s Blue & Gold Gala to salute 65 years of Catholic education at Saint Joseph School. As one of Saint Joseph School’s vital annual fundraisers, this event builds on our tradition of Fellowship, Achievement, and Service as we celebrate all those who have contributed to this very important milestone in our school’s history.
Saint Joseph School’s mission to form exceptional youth by providing a superior education through the lens of the Catholic faith has made our school a unique choice for families in our community. As we continue to invest in our students, Saint Joseph School seeks to continue to be a place of academic excellence framed by our strong Christian tradition.

The Annual Blue & Gold Gala will take place on May 4, 2019, at The Parthenon in cooperation with The Conservancy. We look forward to your partnership on this fundraiser through your attendance, commitment to sponsorship or other patronage opportunities.

News from the Nurses' Clinic:

Headaches are becoming more common with our children. Here are 5 tips that might help. 

1. Balanced and nutritious  diet ( this includes different colored fruits and vegetables, grilled or baked foods)

2. Stay hydrated. 

3. Exercise. 

4. Sleep ( 8-10 hours). 

5. Time for "self" and family time to "de" stress. This time can be very beneficial to our well being.
