From the PrincipalDear Parents,
This weekend is the Fair. All schedules are attached. All proceeds of the fair are used for the benefit of the students of St. Joseph School. The Fair Committee has been hard at work for months planning the extravaganza. I urge everyone to come out and support the fair which is our biggest fundraiser.
Sister Michaeline visited the school last Wednesday. The purpose of the visit was to evaluate the principal. She was very complimentary of the school, the behavior of the students, and the progress being made in enrollment and in the work being done to improve the facility. None of this would be possible without the parents who support the school and the parishioners who have been so generous.
Finally, the present enrollment for the 2009-2010 school year is 357. That is ten more students than are presently enrolled in the school. I want to thank all of you who have recommended the school to your friends, neighbors, and relatives. Almost every family who comes to the school has indicated they have spoken to a parent of a St. Joseph student and that is why they were enrolling in the school.
—Dr. Gerard Toups
