From the PrincipalDear Parents,
Eighth Graders will have their promotion ceremony on Friday at 7:00 p.m. They are a happy group. They seemed to have enjoyed their last year at St. Joseph and as a class got along famously. There is a great deal of talent in the class artistically and academically, and we wish each great success in high school. We expect to hear some wonderful things about them in the future.
We wish well to those leaving us: Mrs. Ryals, Mrs. Redmann, and Mrs. Pinion.
Mrs. Ryals takes on a new position as principal of St. Alphonsus where I know she will do a great job.
Mrs. Redmann is moving back across the lake to be with family. She will teach at Ursuline Academy and will be missed.
I am certain Mrs. Pinion will be around. We won’t let her get away.
This is the last time I will address you as parents for the school year in this forum. Know that we will come back to a different school, more students, better facilities, and five new staff members.
I thank all who have contributed to a very successful year. I ask that each take care in the summer. Come back to us safely. May God Bless you and your families.
—Dr. Gerard Toups
