Just a reminder that the cafeteria sends home past due notices each week. They attach an envelope for easy payment directly to them. Please make any checks payable to St. Joseph Cafeteria. Keep in mind all accounts are pre-pay not charge accounts. The USDA free lunch program covers 1 hot lunch daily (including 1 milk with meal). The program does not cover milk for packers, or extra milks. Also, extra entrees cost $1.75, this also is not covered by the free lunch program. If you have any questions please email Paula at email@example.com -Thanks!
As you may know, a major event in our annual enrollment campaign is our Open House. This year it is scheduled for Sunday, January 24. Our yard signs have proven to be a very effective means of communicating this event to our prospective families. We still have a few left and are asking families to put additional signs in other strategic places (a busy street corner, entrance to a neighborhood, a business in which you know the owners) to help spread the word about St. Joseph School. Please make sure to ask permission before placing the sign and remember to be courteous and pick up the sign after Open House. We will have these signs available in the morning at drop off and at the end of day pick up in the parking lot.
The Catholic Education Fund Scholarship K-8 through the Archdiocese of Cincinnati & FACTS is now open. This year, you must have ALL information filled out by January 31st 2021. If you do not have all information by this very important deadline, you will be ineligible for ANY financial assistance from ANY school-based scholarships.
You will need to have your 2019 tax return on hand to fill out this information, and eventually your 2020 W-2. If you need help uploading any of these documents, please contact the school office to arrange for us to help you. If you do not have access to a computer, you may schedule an appointment with Mrs. Stenger and she will be happy to assist you.
Please, please, please do not let this date pass you by! Do not miss this important opportunity to help your child continue to receive a catholic education.
We are updating our 2020-2021 School Calendar with a switch in days we have planned off. We will be attending school on Friday 3/19/2021 and school will be closed on Monday 3/22/2021.
OUT OF UNIFORM DAY UPDATE: We have rescheduled the out of uniform day for those students who sold the 6 tickets by 12/4. It will be Friday 1/22/2021. Families should have received out of uniform passes this week. Please remember to continue to sell your 365 Lotto Tickets! It is very important because the funds generated through the 365 Lotto Fundraiser go into the general fund. They help cover general operating expenses, such as salaries, building payment, utilities, etc. These items would otherwise have to be covered by large increases in tuition. The program is designed to generate revenue in a way that is easier on a family’s budget than substantial tuition increases.
