Ski Club

posted Jan 7, 2019, 7:09 AM by Lynn LeBlanc   [ updated Jan 7, 2019, 7:11 AM ]

This Wednesday Jan. 9th is our first ski club. Ski drop off is available at 7:00 a.m. Bring your equipment to the shed located on the south side of the school (green canoes) in the fenced in compound. Parents are reminded that they are not to use the bus loop and may be fined if they do. This is also our policy for pick-up at 8:30 p.m. Our coach buses have great difficulty navigating the bus loop when parents park in the bus loop. Your cooperation is appreciated and necessary. Thank you

Advent Greetings St. Joes Families!


ST JOE’S 2018 CHRISTMAS COLLECTION - Give the Dignity of Choice

Friday Dec. 7- Friday Dec. 14


This year we are helping struggling families from Immaculata H.S., Assumption Elementary, our own St. Joes community by providing them the dignity of choice with gift cards from local stores.  


For more info:

Giving struggling families the DIGNITY OF CHOICE, aligns with our Catholic Social Teachings, it is compassionate, and I believe it will also be easier than food hampers! No more last minute trips to the store for a bag of carrots! 


Thank you so much for your generosity St. Joes!  Wishing you all blessings this Advent, and a very Merry Christmas!


Please click the link below to donate and give the Dignity of Choice.
