You will be able to access your child's on line report card through Sycamore between June 1st and June 6th. After June 6, the program rollover begins and you will no longer be able to view the 2017-2018 information.

Some students will be required or recommended to be tutored over the summer so that they will be well prepared to enter the next grade level. You will be receiving information in the mail if your child's teacher feels the need for them to be tutored over the summer. If tutoring is required for your child, your child must complete at least 20 hours of tutoring by a certified teacher. Below is a list of SJS teachers that plan to tutor over the summer.

After 48 years of teaching many wonderful students, I am retiring. I could not have asked for a better school at which to spend my teaching career. I enjoyed meeting new children each year and working to prepare them for their future endeavors.
Thank you for the cards and well wishes, as well as the beautiful necklace presented to me at the Wednesday Mass last week. The celebration at the all school Mass was a perfect way to celebrate my years at St. Joseph School since the participation in those Masses will always have a special place in my heart, just as all my years all my years at SJS will.
I would also like to thank all those who attended 9:30 Mass on Sunday. It was heartwarming to see so many familiar faces and to receive all the well wishes.

Best regards,
