SJCS Family Newsletter
We have made it to February and we couldn't be more excited! As you may well be aware, the spring semester is always fast and furious with many activities and events happening back-to-back and sometimes overlapping. Our staff and students have put in a TON of effort so far this spring and I am excited to see where this takes us.
Know that we are here to support you in the journey of education and life with your students.
Go Eagles & God bless!

Feeling Sick? Please Stay Home.
With the nature of COVID and the precautions we take at school with illness, we ask that you please DO NOT send your student to school if they do not feel well before they leave the house in the morning. We understand the desire to not miss instruction, however, we want to err on the side of caution because the health and safety of our students, staff, and families is more important!
If your student is feeling ill with COVID-like symptoms and does not come to school, please email your campus Administrative Assistant (Elementary - Mrs. Svatek, Secondary - Mrs. Tietjen) as soon as possible so we can work through the safety protocols.

Their principle purpose is to declare the Good News of God’s saving work in Jesus Christ and to support others who do so. It is this truth that compels us to conduct ourselves “in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ” (Philippians 1:27).

Chastity Project Presents "Purified" - February 15
St. Joseph Parish has, along with other parishes in the Diocese of Austin, has scheduled a family-renewal event called Purified for February 15, 2022.
What is Purified?
It is a family-based event that invites parents as well as teens to learn about God’s plan for love. It combines Jason Evert’s presentation on chastity for the family, with a time of prayer, adoration, and the sacrament of reconciliation for everyone. We will also be distributing free resources to every attendee so that every member of the family can take items home to help them live out this lifestyle.
Register today by clicking this LINK.
We are incredibly excited to announce that Jason Evert will be joining our 7th-12th graders on February 16 for a special presentation to learn even more about the message of chastity and how to live out the virtue within their daily lives!
