From the Principal

As many of you know, the St. Joseph School Community grieves with the loss of one of our student’s parent in a tragic accident last Saturday night. Ken Frahm worked as a CPA in the Tangipahoa Parish community. He and his wife Sharon have been strong supporters of the school since enrolling their son Brennan in St. Joseph last August. Brennan also has a three-year-old sister Alaina. Ken is the son of longtime parishioners of St. Joseph, Mrs. and Mrs. Bill Frahm. He will be missed by many. Please keep the family in your prayers.

In a continued effort to keep students in the safest environment possible while at St. Joseph, gates on the carpool side of the building will be locked during school hours. Please use either the old church parking lot or the parking lot on Eighth Street when conducting business at the school. The gates will be opened in a timely manner for carpool traffic.


Here’s an easy way to help raise money for the school. It’s fairly effortless and doesn’t involve selling a thing!

Just send the following used items or coupons from products you already have in the house.

The school will send the items to the appropriate vendors in exchange for cash donations to the school.

This is an on-going collection. It lasts throughout the school year.

Please help out and send any of the following items to the school.

Used Cell Phones
Empty Laser Printer Cartridges
Empty Inkjet Printer Cartridges
Box Tops for Education
Community Coffee Labels.

Please see the flyers attached to today’s packet for more information.

The school no longer is involved in the Campbells Soups Label collection. It is not necessary to save those for us.

Magazine Drive

The Magazine Drive ended last week. Many, many thanks to all those students and parents who worked so hard to make it a great success. Thanks to the efforts of many, a total of over $6000 was raised for the school! This is a tremendous boost for the budget. Everyone should be proud of themselves for such great effort.
Prizes will be sent home shortly.
