Catholic Schools Week!

csw_15_fullcolor_pngSJS students will lead the 10 am Mass on Sunday Jan. 25 to celebrate the start of Catholic Schools Week. On Monday we will focus on building school community during Multiplicity Day, meeting in the MPR to enjoy each others creative ideas. The Natural History Museum will present a program on Tuesday for Enrichment Day. On Wednesday our upper hall students will help Kindergarteners through 5th graders learn about Faith, Knowledge and Service when they present skits about the Bible, the Saints, and other religious role models. Join us Thursday for our annual Open House and Art Show. We round out Catholic Schools Day Friday with Student Appreciation Day and a trip to Rebman’s Bowling Alley to celebrate happy and healthy scholars.

Feliz Navidad!

Spanish CrecheSpanish Club made this Creche for all to remember what we are truly celebrating this Christmas.  The stable and figures were all made from driftwood from Lake Erie.  Students painted the figures under the direction of Mrs. Stencil and Mrs. Peabody.

School Dollars

TargetWant to earn extra money for the school? – Then sign up for a REDcard at Target with their Take Charge of Education project (TCOE)! Target donates 1% of all REDcard purchases made at the store or on their website, and last year St. JosephSchool earned $930.23. In the past 17 years, SJS earned $6,520.75. So far this year we’ve accumulated $1,183.01. That total reflects 53 families signed up for REDcards – just imagine how much more we could be earning if more of our families were part of the program. You can enroll with TCOE and get your REDcard by visiting the website or by calling 1-800-316-6142 – or ask a cashier who can help you get the process started. Since TCOE was started in 1997, Target has paid more than 100,000 schools $324 million, credited to 1.5 million shoppers. And the best news is that the money given to St. Joe’s can be spent any way we need to.
