Although it is time for summer break, I would like to remind you of two things! First, school is out but CHURCH IS STILL IN! Be sure to set a good example for your children by attending Mass or your own church services this summer. A family that prays together, stays together! Second, school may be out but learning needs to continue. Check out the public library this summer and keep your children reading! Let’s start back in the fall without losing any academic ground. But just like the sports your children play, reading and math take practice in order to get better. We would love for your child to take some time each day to review math and reading concepts. Check out the books available online at www.summersolutions.net and enter the code: #JOS67460. Spending ten minutes a day working through these will help keep concepts fresh in your child’s mind.
Be sure to join us at our spring concert on Wednesday, May 17 at 7:00pm in the parish hall. We will also say goodbye to Mrs. Burghart that evening as she gets ready to retire at the end of the month. There is a basket in the office if you would like to “shower” her with cards and best wishes. Just drop the card by the office or send with your child and we will present them to her at the program.
We will have online enrollment again this fall. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU KNOW YOUR POWERSCHOOL LOGIN INFORMATION. If you check it now and can’t get in to Powerschool, please contact the office ASAP so we can get you the correct log-in information. Taking care of it now will make enrollment much easier in August!
As the school year comes to a close I want to thank all of you for all of the volunteer hours you have put in to help our school year run smoothly. Maybe you sit on School Council, PTO board, Oktoberfest Committee, drove for field trips, were a room parent, helped in the lunch room, volunteered in the office, organized and helped with Grandparent’s Day, made food for PT conferences, helped with the teacher appreciation lunch during Catholic School Week, built the float, substitute taught, volunteered in a classroom or did any of the many other jobs that needed to be day. Whatever your contribution, THANK YOU! It is only with all of your help that we can continue to be successful!
I want to especially thank a few families who are graduating their youngest child from St. Joseph Catholic School and will no longer be with us as a school family. It takes sacrifice and dedication to be a school family and these families are a testament to the dedicated parents we have at St. Joseph. They see the value of a faith filled, quality education. I thank them for their example: Matt and Julie Grieb, Chet and Kara Lang, Kyla Partain, and Kelly and Laura Vogts.
I will pray that all of your families have a safe and enjoyable summer break and look forward to seeing you in the fall!
Peggy Bahr, Principal
