(see below for pics of this memorable moment!)

Wednesday, March 17th - Feast of St. Patrick & the "Wearin' of the Green"!

You may have noticed this large container placed in our school parking lot yesterday. Much to the students' disappointment, this container did not house our new school mascot, but rather it was placed there to store equipment for the solar array as it arrives. That's right, our next project is the installation of our solar project!
Our panels will be affixed in the next few weeks!
Attention Preschool Parents!
Dismissal shift for next week!
Due to the beginning stages of our solar project taking place next week, we will be unable to use the gym. This reality will affect the daily pickup of your preschooler. PLEASE NOTE, that you will be expected to park in the same fashion along the sidewalk each day, but rather than connecting with your child at the front doors of the school, we ask that you kindly approach the WHITE FENCE AT THE PRESCHOOL PLAYGROUND.
Thank you in advance for your flexibility and understanding.
The journey continues....
This past week our students happily contributed to the Children's Center at St. Luke's Hospital. Thanks again for your amazing demonstration of generosity! This upcoming week, our National Junior Honor Society will "shift gears" as they encourage our students to make cards for the elderly, as well as assist with Our St. Joseph's Dress Down Day and Can Drive!

St. Joseph.... pray for us!
Our 8th graders began the Guessing Jar Game Fundraiser today by visiting each of our classrooms for a little St. Patty's Day fun! The Luck of the Irish will be necessary to guess the number of chocolate gold coins in the jar this St. Patty's Day!
A dollar a guess for any lads and lassies that wish to test their estimation skills!

Guessing continues next week taking place on Monday & Wednesday (morning only)!
Try your luck while helping the Graduating Class of 2021 raise funds for end of year celebrations.

While we may have made it through the "worst of times", we are not completely "out of the woods"! It is extremely important that daily symptom checks continue to take place each morning before school and if ANY MEMBER of the household displays any symptom whatsoever, please engage in remote learning. Thank you for your continued support in maintaining a healthy school environment.

Please note that our CSW festivities will be postponed until after Easter... with the prayer filled, service driven, fasting focused Lenten season upon us, we shall wait until we can truly celebrate!
