Principal's Message

Greetings! You may have found your way here and are reading this message for many different reasons. I hope you will find the information we have gathered and included here in our website helpful in your search. I invite you to contact our school office if you need additional information or answers to questions we have not covered. If you are looking for a good school for your child/children, I would like to take this opportunity to share a few thoughts with you.
 
Let me begin by saying, if you are here because you are considering the value of an investment (no small amount these days) in a private Catholic elementary school for your child/children, you have already encountered a daunting choice. Is is worth the cost? In the end, only you can answer that question for your family, but I would like to share some information that may help you with that decision. From data gathered over the years by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, we do know that… “A Pre-K through 12th grade Catholic school student is more likely to (or very likely to):
 
Advance further, faster academically.
Receive individual attention.
Make a difference in the world.
Strive for personal excellence.
Practice their faith as adults.
Earn a college scholarship.”
Substantial data exists to support these claims. If these are things you want for your child, you have several very good choices in our area. While we compete on some level, all of the Hamilton/Fairfield-area Catholic elementary schools offer a great value. Each family has to make a choice regarding the school that is the best fit for them. So, why St. Joe’s?
 
I could give you my reasons in the usual, unavoidable “principal speak,” but I find it more valuable and credible to share with you some reasons that come from our families who have made their decisions and have chosen to become and remain part of our St. Joe’s family. I encourage you to read on and learn from them: Why St. Joe’s?

Supply Drop Off Plans

Due to recommendations from the Health Department our usual plan of Supply Drop Off will not work for this school year. Instead we will be doing something similar to our Drop Off/Pick Up we held in the Spring. During the day from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Friday 8/21/2020 and on Monday 8/24/2020 from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. school staff will be at the school door to accept your students supplies. All items that are for personal use, like pencils, pens, notebooks and desk items should be in a bag with the student's name on it. All other items, like tissues, paper towels etc. can be brought in unmarked. If the above dates do not work, students are also welcome to bring their desk supplies the first day of school they attend and then the other items the second week of school. Please click below for the link to the Sign Up Genius to choose a time for your family. Only one time slot per family please.

Important School Forms

This is very important information with links to all of the google forms we will need for the beginning of the 20-21 school year. Please click on the link to fill out each form. These forms need to be completed before the first day of school. School fees are due by 9/4/2020.

Our staff is committed to make a great school year for your family . We ask that parents assist us in this commitment to ensure students are prepared for school by arriving at school on time (7:25 a.m.), completing homework each evening (which includes reading each night), have school supplies at all times, and parents to check weekly folders for important papers. This year most of our communication from the office will be done online and by email. It is very important that families check their emails at least twice a week to remain up to date.

Please contact the office with any questions regarding any of these forms. There will be a couple of additional forms for your family. It will be given to you during your Supply Drop Off time.

Student Supply Lists

Attached please find the SJCS Student Supply Lists by each grade. Please remember that all students must have a mask for school. This mask must cover their nose and mouth. It can be the regular fabric or disposable kind or the gator style, whichever your child finds most comfortable. Also, all SJCS students will need a water bottle for school. The water bottles must have a screw top. The student must be able to turn them upside down and no liquid spill out. No Tervis, Yeti or other types of cups unless they have a tight screw top lid to keep them from spilling. Again, the student must be able to turn them upside down and no liquid spill out. Thanks for your help and understanding. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks!
