Moving Along with Mrs. Maddox
Dear Jaguar Families,
Thank you for all the fun treats and creative surprises throughout the entire week. Staff Appreciation Week was a huge success!!!! We certainly feel loved and appreciated. There is no doubt, we are blessed to work in such a special place surrounded by so many caring people.
Over the next few weeks, we have several things to do in order to close out our successful school year. Not only will we say goodbye to a very special eighth grade class, but we will also say goodbye to a few beloved St. Joseph teachers. Together these talented individuals have given many years of heart felt service to the ministry of teaching. Their passion for helping students and serving our Lord has helped to mold the hearts and minds of hundreds of children. Congratulations on a job well done! Best of luck to Mrs. Quinn (Cashion) Brockman, Mrs. Heather Chewning, Ms. Elizabeth Hittner, Ms. Paige Hopfinger, and Mrs. Barb Zanatta. Thank you for your many years of joyful, dedicated, and creative service to the St. Joseph school community. We wish you many blessings during the next stage of your journey. We will take time on May 20th to honor these special individuals, in the meantime, feel free to send them your love and admiration.
With A Grateful Heart
Principal, St. Joseph School

8th Grade Farewell, Friday May 6th 2:40 pm
On Friday afternoon at 2:40pm, we will cheer for our 8th graders as they take their final walk out of the building in uniform. K-7 students will assemble outside around 2:30pm to cheer for our eighth graders. All 8th grade parents should be parked along the perimeter of the Central Lot (the one with the bridge and basketball goals) before 2:30pm with their cars decorated. We will allow 4th - 6th parents to begin parking at 3:00pm. The lot will be closed by 3:15pm and no car will be allowed to leave the parking lot after 3:15pm until all students have exited the building. If 8th grade parents would like to pick up siblings for dismissal at the same time their 8th grader is dismissed, we ask that you check them out at the front office before 2:30pm. Congratulations to our 8th grade students!!!!!
Grades 1-5 Field Day will be Thursday, May 19th from 8:15-12:00. A sack lunch will be provided by our cafeteria staff. (In the case of rain, Field Day will be moved inside.) Please make sure your child comes to school with sunscreen already applied at home. (No sunscreen will be applied at school due to allergic reactions.) Your student will also need to bring a water bottle and wear appropriate clothing for the weather.
If you would like to volunteer at one of the 15 stations, please sign up below. The volunteer time will be from 7:30-12:15.
Thank you for your help in advance.
