God Bless Saint Joseph School Class of 2023
A Big Thank You!
As the school year for our students comes to a close, I wish to take this opportunity to express my deep appreciation and gratitude to each one of you. The heartfelt thanks and warm wishes have meant so much to me.
I also want to thank our school faculty and staff. They have lived the school mission by providing a quality, spiritual and academic education based on faith, values and excellence. Together we can be proud of all that our students have achieved this year.
As Father Stephen stated in his letter last week, I will be here at the school until a new principal is named and ready to pick up the task. There are still many processes the office staff and administration do during the summer months.
I wish families, faculty and staff a safe restful summer! For our students beginning summer camp next week, I’ll see you Tuesday.
Welcoming New Staff
We will keep updating you as additional new staff sign their contracts.
Welcome Ms. Nunes Grade 4
Hello Saint Joseph students, Families, and staff!
My name is Ms. Sharon Nunes, and I will be teaching grade 4 in September. I live in Mattapoisett, and I am the proud mom of 2 daughters and the best nana of 2 amazing grandsons. I look forward to joining this great community, as well as personally getting to know each and every one of you. As a seasoned educator for over 35 years, my passion is teaching the individual child while guiding them to become proud, honest individuals who are the best version of themselves every day. Together, we will create a safe, warm, and welcoming classroom community for families and students. We will build positive relationships and a passion for lifelong learning.
I look forward to meeting you all soon!

From Mrs. Medeiros
Dear SJS Students and Families,
Six years ago, I walked into Saint Joseph School to interview in hopes that Mrs. Piazza would hire me as the third-grade teacher. During the interview, I had a gut feeling that Saint Joseph School is where I needed to be. I knew I wanted to call SJS home.
Mrs. Piazza called me that afternoon and offered me the job! I instantly accepted with excitement and knew it was the right fit for me at the right time. I had two small children at home and knew I needed a small family atmosphere because I dreamed of one day bringing my babies to school with me. In the fall of 2017 Bella and I started at SJS. The following year Jackson started at SJS. I drove to school with my babies and we drove home together. I loved that I was able to be a wife, mother, and teacher.
I loved every second in third grade. From singing 10,000 Reasons to teaching fractions from home! I loved it because the kids made me laugh, understood me, and knew my expectations.
Three years ago, I took on a more demanding role. I was up for the challenge and was excited to work with all the kiddos at SJS. This role evolved over time from early-morning phone calls to late-night meetings. I now got to work with not only students but teachers, parents, and other administrators.
Three weeks ago, I made the decision that it was time to bring Bella and Jack to school again and to be able to pick them up! I haven’t been able to do this for 3 years and I miss it! Although I am nervous to navigate the drop-off and pickup line I am pretty sure I’ll be ok if I just pull all the way up and remain in the car!
I’ve enjoyed being part of many students’ educational journeys over the last 17 years. However, SJS will always hold a special place in my heart.
