Hearts Aflame For the Love of Christ

Moving Along With Mrs. Maddox

Dear Friends in Christ,


We have had a very interesting spring to say the least. When school was canceled mid-March for the entire 4th Quarter, we were all asked to quickly re-shift our priorities, move our learning and growing to an online format, and day by day we have tried to channel our eagerness to return to our normal spring routine. Although it may not feel like it to most of our students, a few of our typical spring activities were still able to move forward; they simply look and feel very different. We are still able to host our annual Spring Plant sale Friday May 1st, our Kindergarten team has been busy planning Kindergarten Roundup for this summer, and our 8th grade students are still taking center stage as we plan a few new virtual ways to celebrate their achievements and accomplishments. We are eager to help them experience all the traditions established throughout the history of St. Joseph; but for now, we have planned a beautiful mass and award ceremony personalized especially for this amazing class. Please join us on the parish Facebook page, May14th at 8:15 to help celebrate the St. Joseph Class of 2020. Together with “Hearts Aflame for the Love of Christ,” we look forward to recognizing this special class and all they have experienced, accomplished, and learned while attending St. Joseph School.


With a grateful heart,

Jodie Maddox
