Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

On behalf of our entire staff we would like to welcome you back to school. We hope you had a wonderful summer and we are looking forward to another wonderful year.

We are blessed to have an excellent staff which is enthusiastic and dedicated to the students that they teach. Our staff, working in conjunction with the parish of St. Joseph and community agencies, is committed to nurturing the whole child spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically in a respectful and caring environment.

This year our school has chosen the Gospel Value of “Faith: Proclaim It! Our focus will be to incorporate our gospel value into our school activities in order to teach about God’s love for each one of us and to help us to develop a deeper understanding of our relationship with God, others and our environment. By living the gospel value of Faith, we can feel pride and joy in our accomplishments.

We are truly blessed to educate students in our Catholic faith and to share our faith with those around us. Our faith is the cornerstone of all that we do. In this spirit, we will strive to promote a love of learning, a place of caring, and celebrate the uniqueness of each child.

Once again we look forward to working with all our families in a collaborative and supportive manner in educating our students. If questions or concerns arise, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Richard Rapin, Principal
