A Gift From Pre-K 3 to Mrs. Marcoux

"Some of the most beautiful flowers do not arrive in glossy white boxes from the florist, but instead are offered to us by small hands grubby from play. The stems may be short, the blossoms may be drooping, the flowers themselves what some people call weeds, but when given with love, a dandelion will outshine the most perfect long-stemmed rose."

Box Tops Pay-Outs Still Paying Off!

Box Tops for Education gives our families an easy way to earn cash for BJAMS, just by purchasing products you already buy! You send a quick scan and we receive a check that we use to help buy the things our students need. It really is FREE MONEY! Thank you for your continued support.

Could there be a Catholic Secondary Education option in the Morrisville area?

This question is being explored by a team of people who are working with the Diocesan Office of Catholic Schools. What is being considered is not a stand-alone high school but rather a Morrisville campus of Mount Saint Joseph Academy which is located in Rutland, VT. The Steering Committee of this endeavor is working to create an educational choice that will be available to any students in grades 9 – 12 whose families are seeking a faith-based option for their student’s high school experience.

Under the guidance of an Academic Coach who will be on staff at the Morrisville campus, students who attend this campus will be enrolled at Mount Saint Joseph Academy. Through the use of digital resources, these students will participate in live classes as they are taught at the Rutland campus. Students will gather at a location within Morrisville in order to have the benefits of being in-person with their peers, however, they will connect to their classes utilizing up-to-date digital resources and an exciting new learning platform being developed by one of Vermont’s institutions of higher education. The focus of this endeavor is to create a meaningful learning option that melds the in-person experience with a remote learning platform while opening every avenue possible to immerse the students at the Morrisville campus into the life and culture of the school.

This endeavor is very much in the design phase, however, it is hoped that it will be ready for implementation in time for the 2021 – 2022 school year. To that end, those working on this endeavor are seeking to ascertain if there is interest in the Morrisville area for this unique learning option.
