  • Conduct Update Reminder Grades 4-8

Parents of students in grades 4-8: Teachers in grades 4 through 8 use a system of points to track students conduct.  Any teacher or staff member can assign points to a student if there is a conduct infraction or rule violation.   When students are assigned conduct points, parents will receive an email from Option C indicating points are assigned.  After 5 points have accumulated, students will have to serve an after school detention.  Notification of detention will come in paper form and through an email from Option C.  Detentions are scheduled for Wednesdays from 2:30 p.m. to 3:15 p.m.

 

  • Option C Reminder

All SJCS parents have an account created in Option C by the school office.  If your children attended school here before the 22-23 school year you have been given your username and password information already.  Please keep in mind Option C has updated their system over the summer and now will require parents to use an email address as their log in. You will be prompted to update this information when you log in if you have not updated already.  Please if you have any questions or need assistance with your login information contact Theresa Stenger at [email protected] to assist you

  • SJCS Diversity Committee

Here at St. Joseph, we are committed to a culture of inclusion, respect, social justice, and equality. In our never ending efforts to continue being the best school in town, we are working hard to coordinate our Diversity Committee. The purpose of the Diversity Committee is to work collaboratively to advocate and support diversity education in our school community, to encourage opportunities for students, staff, faculty and family to grow in their own understanding of diversity. We would like to invite parents that are interested in joining the committee to help develop goals, create activities to celebrate National Observances, provide direction, support, oversight, and enhance educational opportunities for our students and families. The committee will also play an active role in regularly communicating progress in this work to the rest of the St. Joseph family. We are all very excited to engage in this critical work and look forward to working with everyone. We have some events we would like to plan for students and would love for parent assistance. If you are interested in joining this group please click on the link below to share your information for meetings.

  • Acts of Kindness Day, Birthday Remembrance

In 2019 we lost a very very special friend of St. Joseph, our Mimi.  For those of you who don’t know her she was one of our St Joe lunch crew for a long time.  After she retired she came back to volunteer in the cafeteria and with Ms. Graf.  She loved all of us very much and always spread her kindness and sunshine wherever she went. Students will be receiving a special sunshine treat tomorrow in honor of her birthday (10/1) and we would like to ask all of you to do at least one random act of kindness starting tomorrow and make someone smile.  Not only should we all do this today, but everyday!  We are sure she is smiling down at us right now
