From the Principal

Dear Parents, 

Eighth graders will graduate on Friday at 7:00 p.m. The eighth graders are an example for the rest of the school. Their behavior and demeanor throughout the year, their concern for the other students in the school, and their obvious commitment to their faith is a testament to their parents and, we hope to some degree, to the training they have received at St. Joseph School. We offer them our congratulations and know that as they proceed to the next stage in their life they will represent the school well and make us all proud to have them as alums of SJS. 

Congratulations to all those who contributed the original writings and the art to the excellent literary magazine “Imagine” published by the Literary Club. I hope every parent has taken the time to examine the students’ work. The magazine gives us an excellent assessment of the talent in the school. Thanks to Mrs. Redmann for sponsoring the club and bringing out in our students their best. 

—- Dr. Gerard Toups
