Let It Begin With Me

      "Let the Peace from Christ rule in your heart..." Colossians 3:15

Dear Parents,

We continue with our standardized tests this week with the administration of the Iowa Testing Program. The areas of Reading, Vocabulary, Comprehension, Word Analysis, Listening, Math, Computation, and Problem Solving comprise the key areas of the testing module. The results offers us a diagnostic view of how our students are progressing in these key academic areas. This data can be used to drive curricular decisions and create effective instructional programs.

The only preparation your child needs for these tests is a good night's sleep and a balanced breakfast.

We are excited to welcome our FLASH Program back to St. Joseph's School with a substantial enrollment of our students participating!
CATS and HOOPS begins this week!

On Thursday, October 15th our Come Grow With Me presentation will include our 5th through 8th grade teachers in their classrooms to share their curriculum, materials, state standards overview, goals, expectations, and class profile. I invite all my 5th through 8th grade parents to attend to visit all your child's teachers to learn about your child's educational journey for this year!

The various programs and extra-curricula activities that define St. Joseph School will be on display for your perusal and investigation!
Come See What Makes Us Special!
Many changes from the hard copy calendar occur! Please check the calendar on our website for all current events, additions and changes!

...We are a peaceful people guided by our Lord's peace. Who will you share your peace with today?
