Soundings Newsletter - Campus news for the Saint Joe family.
November 30, 2017, is a late start day. Classes begin at 9:00 a.m. and doors will open at 7:00 a.m. 
Joy of Saint Joe

Our core value this year is "Serve with Joy." We want to put our beliefs into action by asking our school community to participate in the Joy of Saint Joe day of service on Tuesday, November 21, 2017. This will be a regular school day, but instead of traditional classes, students, faculty, staff, and parent volunteers will go out into the community and perform service for those in need. Students will be able to complete three of their required Christian Service hours for their outreach.
Any student raking leaves needs to bring a change of shoes for the day.
Summer Trip to Germany 

Saint Joseph High School students are invited to participate in a German exchange program this summer during the second week of June to the first week of July. Students will stay with host families, have daily excursions, and visit Munich and Berlin. The cost for this trip is estimated at $2200.

The reservation deadline is Tuesday, November 21 and a $750 deposit is required.
All students are invited to participate, not just students in German class. For more information contact Mrs. Connie Langheinrich at or Mr. Paul Kuharic at
