St Joseph High School - A Catholic College Preparatory Community
Dear Friends,
Greetings from St Joes. I hope all is well with your family. This is an exciting and important week for us as we prepare for the official reopening of school on Tuesday, September 8. Our action packed student re-entry week kicks off on Wednesday, also known as “FIT Day”, where we welcome incoming freshman, international, and transfer students followed by orientation activities for Grades 9 &10 on Thursday and concluding with orientation for Grades 11 & 12 on Friday. This is a highly anticipated and very exciting time for all of us – Cadets Coming Home to Joe!
Also, a very sincere and appreciative shout out to the SJ Student Ambassadors for helping us on Campus during the past few weeks with important transitional/reopening activities and starring in instructional videos about important new building usage and safety protocols. Thank you and great job! In addition, fall athletic teams have resumed their conditioning activities and so the exciting and invigorating “hustle and bustle” of a new school year begins. This a wonderfully unique opportunity for all SJ Cadets (students and adults) to set new goals, try new things, and re-commit to personal growth and improvement.
Finally, I ask that you join us in continued prayers of strength, peace and comfort for the Semplice family during this time of personal loss and sadness. The St Joes community has lost an exceptional teacher, friend, and family member and our hearts are heavy. Thank you for your continued support and I wish you a fulfilling week ahead.
In Faith and Fellowship,
David J. Klein
Mourning the Loss of a Teacher and a Friend...
On Friday, we shared with our community the sad news of Greg Semplice’s passing. Señor Semplice shared his enthusiasm for Spanish culture and language with our community for 19 years. He was a man of deep faith and a contagious joy that he gifted to so many generations of St Joe’s students and faculty. His love of the school and those in it will not be soon forgotten. Please keep the Semplice family in your prayers. Counseling services are available for faculty and students - please reach out to Father Silva.
