We have lots of donations and items in our used uniform stock. At this time we are looking for a parent volunteer to take over this important task. This would include sorting the items, setting up for a sale in the gym twice a year and helping to distribute requested items during the school year. Please let us know in the office if you are interested in helping. We are planning on having items out for parents to look over in the next few weeks here in the gym. An email with dates and times will be sent to parents soon.
The St. Joseph School office will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. from Tuesday 6/1/21 to Thursday 6/10/21. After these dates we will be in the office in a limited capacity, but as always we will be available through email to answer any questions. We will be checking emails daily and can schedule appointments if needed.
The Transportation Departments have contacted me with the following directions regarding the transportation of students. Please read over these instructions to ensure your child will have transportation to and from school for the 2021-2022 school year.
If these forms are NOT filled out, your child will NOT have bus transportation.
The Hamilton City Transportation website will be reset as of June 1, 2021 for sign up for next school year for all Non-Public/Butler Tech Transportation requests, as well as for the Sitter Form Request. July 12, 2021 is the deadline for sign up to ensure your students will have transportation on the first day of school. Requests received after July 12, 2021 will be processed as they are received but it may take up to 2 weeks to get those students assigned to a bus. The link to all the transportation departments is below.
The 2020-2021 yearbook is now on sale. This year all yearbook ordering will be done online. If your family needs assistance with online ordering please contact Mrs. Stenger and she will assist you. Here is our Yearbook ID Code 5070721 and here is the link to order St. Joe Life Touch Yearbook Order link
"Governor DeWine announced that he will be lifting all health restrictions beginning June 2. Consequently, Archbishop Schnurr and the bishops of Ohio have set June 5-6th as the date to restore the Sunday obligation. On that date (June 5-6), masks will no longer be required when attending Mass. Seating will be more available beginning this weekend. It is a blessing for all of us, as that weekend is the liturgical celebration of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Jesus - a feast dedicated to the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation through the pandemic. We look forward to seeing you again when we worship on Sunday!"
It has been determined that in order to be considered a parish member in good standing, you must attend mass at least 75% of the year in order to receive 100% parish rate tuition. Attending mass 50% of the year, you would receive 50% parish subsidy rate. Because this is a Covid year, and churches will be opening again on June 6, the following criteria will be in effect for St. Joseph Parish families for the remainder of 2021. By dropping in your envelope, your attendance will be recorded. If you attend mass, you need to make sure you bring your envelope. If you need a box of envelopes, please contact the parish office. There are also yellow envelopes in the rear of church if you happen to forget your envelope and want your attendance recorded. Letters will go home at the End of December or beginning of January, notifying you of your family’s eligibility for the 22-23 school year. Parish subsidy is currently $1050 per student, however, this amount could change depending on the number of students eligible.
