Our Mission and Vision Statements
St. Joseph Catholic School provides students with a safe and prayerful learning environment, enveloped by an intimate community of active and faithful families.
Catholic schools in the Diocese of Fort Worth are committed to opening the doors so that our students can reach further than the walls that would otherwise enclose them and therefore are able to recognize and cherish the eternal and transcendental goods of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness.
From the Principal
As the last day of school approaches, there is much excitement in the air! Tomorrow, the classrooms will be filled with smiling faces celebrating the end of the 2018-2019 school year.
I have had the pleasure of welcoming you and your children to school in the mornings, and have watched each child increase in height and in confidence with each passing day. It is such an honor to be part of this school.
On behalf of all the Faculty and Staff of St. Joseph Catholic School, I want to thank you for entrusting us with the education of your children, and for all you do for our school. Be sure to keep us all in your daily prayers over the break, as we will be certain to keep you in ours.
In Christ's service,
Diane Price, M.Ed.L.

Safe Environment Training
You must first create a profile in VIRTUS for the Safe Environment Diocesan Program.
Per the Diocese, all school volunteers if they are current on Safe Environment, will have until 7/31/19 to renew through VIRTUS if you do not expire before that date. You need to go on the VIRTUS website and make a profile. You can do this without signing up for a class. Profiles are needed in the new system so we know you have previous training, as the old database is no longer open for viewing.

Mrs. Gavin's students have been working hard to learn all about financial literacy. Here are 3 pictures of them hard at work. The "savvy shopper" game took a lot of concentration!

Fr. Philip and Isaac McCracken
Fr. Philip and seminarian Isaac McCracken made the rounds through the building this week, enjoying the students' welcoming smiles.
Mrs. Hess engaged her classes in the time-honored tradition of the May Pole. It is not as easy as it may look!
Mrs. Pouttu and her 6th grade students spent time this week sharing their writing with one another. Nice work, Knights!
