Principal’s Corner

“Every morning that I watch my children step through the doors of St Joseph School, I stop and say a thank-you prayer to the Lord for blessing my children with the opportunity to grow spiritually, socially, and academically in a place where He is working through every teacher and administrator. I look forward to that moment each morning when I can feel Him take them by the hand and walk through those doors to a place that is more than just a school. ”

 

“Parenting children to become ethical, confident, self-disciplined, healthy, happy, and spiritual individuals is a challenge. The challenge increases when your children spend the better part of the day at school. For this reason, we took choosing a school for our children very seriously. We want our kids to be among others we trust who share similar ideas and beliefs to those of our own. We feel confident St. Joseph School was our answer. Everyday our children are provided with an education of the whole person, and undoubtedly, are loved and cared for by family…our St. Joseph family.”

 

“For nine years, our children attended this school and received an outstanding academic and religious education that was second to none. With the dedicated service of the laity staff and the exposure to Catholicism, their education was rich in tradition. Due to the strong academic and spiritual foundation constructed at SJS, always to be reinforced at church and home, the twins are thriving in all aspects at Providence High School.   More importantly, the small class sizes and personal attention that they received at SJS reinforced all of the values that we sought to instill. They differentiated from right and wrong and revered a sense of kindness and goodness that still permeates their lives. They established early a strong work ethic and learned to work hard to achieve their highest potential. They made life-long friends. They experienced first-hand the sense of belonging to a close-knit Catholic community, as well as, the benefits and responsibilities of being of being members of such a community. The experiences here at St. Joseph have profoundly impacted our lives.”

 

“Through everything that St. Joseph community has done for and meant to our family, it has required nothing from us. If we had not been able to afford tuition, St. Joseph would have provided it. If we could not contribute to the Sunday collection, we would have still been welcomed. Where else in life can you receive so much without anything required in return? The selflessness of the faculty, administration and parish staff is an example of what really is most important in life. No matter how involved we continue to be in the St. Joseph community, it will never equal the value of what we have received. But we will continue to be active, both to show our gratitude by helping others, as well as to continue to benefit from the grace and community that has been so important to our lives.”   Through everything that St. Joseph community has done for and meant to our family, it has required nothing from us.
