Message from Mr. Henry Chandler
Welcome to the first Alumni Soundings of 2019. I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Christmas and that the New Year will bring you health, happiness and all of God’s blessings.

The second semester will be a busy one here at Saint Joe with major events like the Midwinter Dance and Prom, senior class events, winter and spring sports contests, the Spring Auction, Lenten Penance and Prayer Services, and the graduation of the Class of 2019 to name just a few. 

It is the goal of Alumni Soundings to keep you informed about campus news as well as providing details about upcoming reunions, alumni features, and alumni events. Hope you enjoy this edition and stay warm and safe as winter is bound to descend on us soon!

The Saint Joe hockey team was busy during Christmas break, as not only did they host the annual alumni hockey game, but they also unfurled the flag at Notre Dame Stadium for the NHL Winter Classic between the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins!

The annual Alumni vs. current team hockey game was held on Christmas Eve at noon on the Rink 1 ice at the Ice Box. Fifteen alumni faced off against members of the current and recent teams in a battle for the Chandler Cup. 

Current coach Chris Kleva organized the game and put forth a stellar effort for the Alumni team who prevailed in the contest. A number of brother combinations bolstered the alumni efforts including Marc and Christien Joubert, Matt and Mike Potter and Sean and Josh McMillen. After the post-game handshakes, members of both teams joined in a rendition of the Saint Joe Fight Song and a photo session. The tradition continues!
Many alumni have received a letter from Saint Joe regarding the Fund for Saint Joseph. This appeal raises money to offset the difference between tuition and the actual cost of a student education at Saint Joseph High School, as well as providing funds for areas of need within the school. 

Contributions from alumni are an important source of financial support for their school as its faculty, staff, and administration strive to fulfill our mission of transforming students in heart and mind to serve God, the Church, and the World. Please be as generous as possible in response to this appeal. Your donations to the Fund for Saint Joseph are deeply appreciated.
