Ah the lazy, crazy days of Summer!  A time to relax and rejuvenate and think of the year that is past and the one that is to come.  Summer is when very little happens in a school and…..

Well, that may be true of some schools but definitely not St. Joe’s!

Since school let out in June we have been very active around here.  Summer camp is in full swing with activities and field trips and the halls resounding with peals of laughter and flip-flopping feet. There is still time to join the fun. Please call the office for more details.

If you call the office you will be greeted by Ms. Heidi’s welcoming voice.  She has taken over for the summer and is doing an amazing job. With her help we have instituted Tour Tuesdays and Thursdays and every week many new families tour the school and quite a few have registered.  For the first time in many years we may need to close out some classes and create standby waiting lists. We are pleased that so many families see what we see; St. Joseph’s is where you want to be for an excellent, well rounded faith filled education!

We have had some important work done around the school this summer.  There are new floors in rooms 305 and 307. A new roof is being put on the entire building which should keep us dry for many years to come. In addition, our new custodian, Mr. Brian, is scrubbing and fixing what needs fixing from one end of the building to the other. We are awaiting upgrades to our lighting and technology infrastructure all of which should make this old building seem almost new!

If you know of families looking for what a St. Joseph’s education offers please remind them of Tour Tuesdays and Thursdays.  If you still need to reregister kindly do not delay as classes are filling up quickly. We hope that you have a chance to relax and just do nothing for a while.  That is the joy of summer.
