We need some help!

We have been very fortunate to have some items donated to us from St. Austin Catholic Church in Austin. Scoreboards, basketball goals and some lockers. What we need is some help loading and unloading these items, especially since they are on the 2nd floor! It will take some strong backs! We have 1 trailer but could probably use another 2 if you have it available and can bring.

Mr. Shook will be leaving the school Saturday, August 28th at 9am to head to Austin. If you can help with moving these items, or you have a pickup with trailer, please meet him at the school about 8:45 am on Saturday so that you can follow him to Austin.

If you can help, please let us know. These items will really help the school, we just need help.

The month of September is Disaster Preparedness Month and St. Joseph Catholic Academy is teaming up with Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Austin to provide classroom presentations for our students. Students will learn about what happens during a natural or other disaster such as fire and flood, and how to be prepared. Each student will come home with a home kit and information guide to go over with their parents and family members. We hope this is a helpful resource for all of our families.

Dress Code

Soon, we will be giving out dress code violations. The below attached PDF is a good look at what the dress code for each student in each grade should be. We know there is a back order on some items, but hopefully you will receive any missing items soon.

Drop off and pick-up information

-Front doors do not open for drop off until 7:30. PLEASE do NOT leave your student unattended in the front of the school building.
-If your student is eating breakfast, please use the cafeteria side entrance. Breakfast starts at 7:15.
