Students at St. Joseph Elementary School are strongly connected to a system of support services that assists each student in achieving the schoolwide learning expectations. A wide variety of opportunities encourage students and staff to further individual and collective spiritual and moral development. Students in kindergarten through 8th grade participate in age-appropriate activities that increase awareness of the needs of the parish, local, and global communities.
A sampling of these activities include student council-led morning prayer, prayer throughout the day, weekly Mass, and prayer services for liturgical and holiday celebrations. To strengthen a spirit of connectedness throughout the school community, students belong to “Faith Families” that include a student from each grade. 7th and 8th grade students serve as the leaders of the families which gather for liturgy, weekly Town Hall meetings, and other activities.
