Spanish 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.
May God open our hearts to prepare the way for the coming of Christ. May He guide us in ways of compassion so that we may extend His love and mercy to all people. We ask this in the name of Jesus, the Eternal Lord, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit forever.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Blessed and Happy New Year!
From Mrs. Karen Casper-Linn and all the teachers and staff at St. Joseph School

Want 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 target.com/tcoe 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.
Would you like to get a text message on your cellphone or iPad when the school is closed? One is available from WKYC for free. Just go to www.wkyc.com/news/mobile/text/ to sign up for the text alert and WKYC will send i-alert notification directly to your mobile device for the school you choose. Although WKYC cannot guarantee 100% delivery of the text message because of carrier or geographical difficulties, you can still view school closings on the tv or at their website.
Beginning in October, the second Tuesday of each month will be St. Joe’s Night at Sal and Al’s! If you go out to eat that night and let them know you are from our school, Sal and Al’s will donate money back to the school! Thanks for supporting the school and businesses owned by our parishioners.
