The end of the school year brings a variety of events for our students. Please review our newsletter for information about dates, graduation, carnival, field day, etc. As has been tradition, the students will be dismissed following Mass on June 7th. Our visiting priest, Fr. John, will be presiding over Mass on that day. In speaking with him, he has suggested a procession to celebrate Corpus Christi on that day. You may be receiving communication from the classroom teacher regarding your child contributing or developing items that would be appropriate for this procession.
The students had a great performance last Friday at VIP/Grandparents Day! Thank you to all the VIPs and grandparents who attended. If you were not able to attend, here is a link to the YouTube playlist with the videos:
On VIP/Grandparents Day, we raised almost $1000 for our ukulele fundraiser! I was amazed at the generosity of our school's families. Thank you to all who have donated! We are now just a few hundred dollars short of our goal. If you would still like to contribute to our ukulele fundraiser, we will be taking donations until the end of the school year.
Thank you for your support during my first year at St. Joe's. I'm looking forward to another great year in the fall!
Tomorrow is the Carnival! Each class will be coming down to the carnival for 35-40 minutes. They will play games and win prizes! If your child has not ordered tickets, more will be on sale tomorrow-each punch card is $1.
We also have some wonderful raffle prizes! Each raffle ticket is $1 (CASH ONLY) and your child could win MANY GREAT PRIZES!!! Baskets include a giant Squishmallow, a 32 inch TV, a Drone and a Nintendo Switch Lite! The raffle tickets are only on sale on Friday with the drawing at the end of school so make sure you send some CASH for the raffle tickets!
We will also have some concessions (chips and candy) which your child can use cash or pre-purchased punch cards to purchase!
The 8th graders have been working really hard to make this an unforgettable experience! And remember all proceeds benefit St. Ben’s Homeless Shelter in Milwaukee.

We celebrated VIP/Grandparents Day at St. Joe's this week and it was a very special day for all who attended! Our special guests enjoyed songs sung by grades K4-8, musical performances by our band students, and also by our students who performed in our school musical this year. Students and their guests spend time together in their classrooms where they enjoyed refreshments and special activities. We ended the day by joining together as a school community to pray the Living Rosary in church. Thank you to all the grandparents and VIPs who were able to attend!
These adorable dalmatians in K3 celebrated their 101st day of school this week!
