Aiden Rodachy, a 4th grade student at St. Joseph School, has been chosen to attend a Techie Camp sponsored by Tech Corps, a national group that brings advanced technology training to students, much like the Peace Corps brings help to developing countries. Aiden was among 500 applicants to apply for Techie Camp in Robotics, which only accepted 20 students from Lorain County. Aiden was chosen on the basis of teacher recommendation and an essay he wrote on why he likes technology. Techie Camp is a full-day, week-long experience designed specifically for elementary and middle school students.
Congratulations to 6th Grader Regina Wolf who has won an $800 Bishop’s Scholarship for Excellence to attend St. Joseph School next fall. Regina was commended for her essay on The Lord’s Prayer and the idea of forgiving those who trespass against us. Only 16 students throughout the diocese were given these scholarships on the elementary school level.
It’s not too late to enroll your 3 or 4 year old for Preschool next year! Please call the school office at 988-4244 for more information.
Transportation forms for the 2014-2015 school year are going home this week. Any family who will have students riding buses next year must fill out this form and return it to school before June 14.
