St. Joseph the Worker is celebrated on May 1, and we reflect on not only our devotion to our patron saint, St. Joseph, but we are also reminded of the dignity that should be granted to each worker, and respect for the work they do. In this time of pandemic, we are grateful for our health care workers and all those who continue to work for our common good. However, everyone makes a contribution, whether we are called to be “front-line” workers, or to provide support in other areas…..keep doing your part!
Coffee with the Principal is
scheduled for Friday, May 1, at 8:30AM. Teachers will participate in professional development that day, however, if you are available, I would love to have coffee with you! Both Mrs. Farrell and Mrs. Henry will join us as we reflect on the balancing act that is being a working parent with children in home-learning! The stay at home order creates stress on so many fronts, and we can talk about ways to manage this particular stress. Meet us on ZOOM at this link.
Also on Friday, May 1, as was the case last Friday, students and families have the opportunity to join our Friars for
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
at 9:30. Father David will read the Gospel and deliver a homily for our students. Father Alberto will lead the rosary. I hope that many of our students can attend, and enjoy the spiritual connection. Join us on the SJC Facebook page, found at
Friday, May 1 is the first of the five PD days for our teachers that were added to the calendar at the direction of the Office of Catholic Schools. Additionally, St. Joseph Catholic School will not have distance learning on these Fridays: May 8, May 15, May 29 and June 5. There will be no live classes on these dates.
Students are encouraged and expected to use their time on PD Fridays to
catch up on work, and visit the encore classes, if time permits. Remember, what we accomplish now sets us up for success in the fall! Parents, please check PowerSchool for missing assignments, and please reach out to the teacher if you have any questions.
Stay well, and please let me know if you have any questions.
Welcome one another....as Christ welcomed you!
