Mission Statement

St. Joseph Catholic School fosters a diverse community of disciples empowered through a rigorous and inclusive Catholic education rooted in Gospel values and service to others.

uniform shortage

We are in communication with our uniform provider, Sir Walter, and understand that there is a shortage of uniforms as we get set to start the school year. While we understand the challenges that this supply shortage is causing, we will maintain uniform guidelines as best that we are able.

  • We urge all families to shop the used uniform store to try to find all pieces of the school uniform for their child.
  • Returning families, we need your help! Please consider donating any uniforms that you don't need to the used uniform store. We are in great need of stock for our families.
  • In the event that families are not able to purchase school polos, we will allow students to wear a PE uniform shirt with uniform bottoms while awaiting delivery - only if polos have been ordered through Sir Walter.

There will be a series of Orientation Meetings for parents over the course of the next few weeks. It is very important that all parents attend the Orientation meeting that relates to their child(ren). These meetings are critical as we begin the year together.

St. Joseph Prayer

O Blessed Joseph, faithful guardian of my Redeemer, Jesus Christ, protector of Mary, the virgin Mother of God, I choose you this day to be my special patron and advocate and I firmly resolve to honor you all the days of my life. Therefore, I humbly ask you to receive me as your client, to instruct me in every doubt, to comfort me in every affliction, to obtain for me and for all the knowledge and love of the Heart of Jesus, and finally to defend and protect me at the hour of my death. Amen.
