From the Principal

Happy last day of school! We made it! It has been a pleasure and an honor to serve you and your students this year. It has been a truly beautiful year! May you grow closer to God each day, as you see beauty around you while on your summer vacations.


On behalf of the faculty and staff of St. Joseph Catholic School, I wish you a safe and relaxing summer break! We will see you in August. God bless you.


In Christ's Service,

Diane Price

Quotes to Ponder

So great was my joy in God that I took no heed of looking at the angels and the saints, because all their goodness and all their beauty was from Him and in Him.

- St. Angela of Foligno


Take a beautiful soul as your model and walk in its footsteps at all costs.

-St. Joseph Marello


At St. Joseph Catholic School, we are striving to become missionary disciples by bringing others to Christ, through the recognition of what is beautiful around us each and every day, and reflecting that beauty in our actions.

car line observations


  • Please do not disregard the cones that are placed around the parking lots. These are provided to help keep our students safe.


  • It is very important that cars are not left unattended in the car line. Please park your car in the large lot beside the field if you need to leave your vehicle.


  • Please remember that if you are walking your child into the school building, you are to park in the large lot in front of the field. Foot traffic should not be occurring in the very front parking lot, even though there is a defined crosswalk. It is dangerous to be walking between the cars.


  • For the safety of all, please be aware of your speed as you move through the parking lots.


  • Please be patient with friends and extended family members who drop off and pick up students. Many times they have not been informed of the proper way to navigate the car line. We do reach out to families after arrival and dismissal who seem to not understand the car line pattern.


  • If you have a friend or extended family member picking up your child, please take a minute to explain the procedures to them. Please reference the diagram. Thank you!


  • We would ask that a cell phone not be in your hand while driving in the car line. We all know it only takes one sudden distraction to alter lives forever.

Seminarians Come to St. Joseph

On Wednesday, the students enjoyed getting to know some of our Diocesan Seminarians. They shared what it is like to be in the seminary, and how they chose their vocation. The students had such good questions!
The seminarians were able to spend some time outdoors with our students as well. It was such a nice experience to meet the fruit of our prayers for vocations. The students were able to visit with these two gentlemen found on the poster on display in our cafeteria and in their own parishes.

St. Joseph Parish Conference:

Fullness of truth Conference-July 13th and 14th

Fullness of Truth invites you to their “Dynamic, Contagious Catholics!: Bringing Loved Ones Back to the Fullness of Truth”conference, at St. Joseph Catholic Community in Arlington, Texas, July 13th & 14th, 2018. Renown speakers include: FR. MITCH PACWA (EWTN); DR. MARCELLINO D’AMBROSIO (Crossroads Initiative); JESSE ROMERO (Radio Host), and SALLY ROBB (Author). You can't keep the faith unless you give it away! That's a fact. To be a Christian is to be an evangelizer, and when the Catholic Church calls us to a "New Evangelization", that's simply a reminder of what's always been true, and to which we've been sacramentally called. The great news is this: YOU CAN DO IT- you can become a "contagious" unifying messenger of love and truth - and our dynamic conference will show you how! No need for some deep, new knowledge, and you certainly don't need to master a new set of skills. You've already been equipped because evangelization for Catholics, is simply active love and friendship raised up to the highest level. Together, we will enter into a deeper friendship with Christ, and you'll simply want to share this gift of companionship and joy daily with a wider circle of friends and family. Bring them into the Fullness of Truth, Love and Grace of the Catholic Church!

Register ONLINE HERE! & for more details, visit: FullnessOfTruth.org or call toll free: 877.218.7884 or 877.21.TRUTH.
