St Joseph High School - A Catholic College Preparatory Community
Dear Friends,
 
Happy Monday morning, St. Joes. I hope you enjoyed the weekend and the BIG game last night. I am motivated to provide a message of gratitude and encouragement as we begin the week.
 
On behalf of the entire SJ faculty and staff, I share a heartfelt thank you for your overwhelming kindness to us during Catholic Schools Week. The breakfast, gift cards and lunch on Friday were all exceptionally thoughtful gestures of kindness and love. We truly appreciate your generosity of spirit and sincerely value our strong school-family partnership with you. Thank you very much!
 
As the weariness and frustration of COVID-19 lingers on, it is critically important that we continue to encourage and lift each other up with positivity – especially our SJ students. They have demonstrated such impressive resiliency and grit, however, they are high school students who need and look to us for strength and hope. Our Catholic faith and trust in God will guide us through this challenging situation.
 
So, in the spirit of encouragement and positivity, I am pleased to inform you that we have not canceled any events of SJ significance for the second semester and the administration and faculty continue to plan and strategize the successful delivery of traditional celebrations including: Junior Ring Ceremony; Prom; Feast of St. Joseph Mass; Honor Society Inductions; Last Bell, Color Wars and themed Dress Down Days. In fact, this week the SJHS Student Council will submit their school spirit proposals for Semester 2 to the administration. Also, our graduation ceremony for the Class of 2021 will remain as originally scheduled on Saturday, June 5, 2021. While the aforementioned events of SJ significance may look and feel different this year, they will happen in a safe and sophisticated way. We are CADETS and we CARRY ON!
 
As always, you are in my daily thoughts and prayers. Have a safe, productive and happy week ahead.

In Faith and Fellowship,
David J. Klein
President
