  • Day Off Change

St. Joseph Consolidated School needs to make an adjustment to our school calendar.  Due to the need for a staff professional development day there will be no school for students on Monday 1/31/22.  Thanks ahead of time for your understanding.


  • Masks on Buses

The bus companies have asked us to remind parents it is federal law that all students must wear a mask on the school bus to and from school every day.  Please ensure that your child has a mask when they get on the bus in the morning.  Since we are wearing them during the school we will ensure they have them when they get on the bus in the afternoon.  Thanks ahead of time for your help and cooperation.

  • Re-registration 2022-2023

Below is a google form link to all SJCS Families (K-7, sorry 8th grade parents) for families to re-register for the 2022-2023 school year.  All re-registration for next year will be through this google form.  Please complete this form by Friday 1/28/2022.  This will ensure your child's place in class for the next school year.  You do not need to pay the $100 registration fee (which includes the cafeteria fee) until families are sent enrollment agreements later in the school year.  Please let us know if you have any questions.

  • Catholic Schools Week 2022

This year to celebrate Catholic Schools Week we will be giving every student a pin. These pins should be worn to school everyday. All students' names are in a magic hopper and Mr. Hicks will pull several out each day. If the student, whose name is pulled, has their pin on they will win a special prize. If the teacher’s name is pulled the entire class is rewarded. We will also be participating in an all school food drive for the needy in our immediate area. Below you will see the specific items each class is responsible for:
