Dear Saint Joseph Elementary School Parents,

My heart is still so full from last night's Christmas program: Breaking News: Jesus' Birth. The students all did so well. I am so proud of each of them. A big thank you to Mr. Meyer and Mrs. Dominguez for all the work they put into the show.

On behalf of the faculty and staff, I would like to wish each of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

"A child is born to us!
A son is given to us!
And he will be our ruler.
He will be called, "Wonderful Counselor,"
"Mighty God, " "Eternal Father,"
"Prince of Peace."
Isaiah 9:6

God's Blessing on Each of Us,

Dr. Marquita Yriarte
