The chromebooks have arrived! Because of many generous donations, we were able to purchase a set that will be shared throughout our classrooms. Thank you to PTO for putting on such a tremendous Winter Carnival! We also received a donation in memorial of Nick Mies from LaVern and his family. Thank you also to Knights of Columbus and CYM! A memorial for Nathan Doll from his family is helping to purchase a special cart that will keep these learning tools safe!
BOOK FAIR AND FAMILY READING NIGHT!
We are hoping you can join us this next Wednesday night, Mar. 7, from 6:30-7:30. This is going to a fun evening for kids as they enjoy snacks, games, crafts, and storytellers in the gym. Meanwhile, parents will have some time on their own in the cafeteria at our Parent University presentation, and then can socialize with other adults and shop at our Book Fair without the kids around! Don't forget that books make great Easter presents! Our night will conclude with a special play that the 4th graders will perform!
The 5th and 6th graders will perform the "Living Passion" on the following dates:
Feb 23rd @ 8:10 am at St. Joseph Church
Feb 23rd @ 6:00 pm at St. Joseph Church
March 2nd @ 7:30 pm at Danville Catholic Church

THE FAMILY THAT GOES TO CONFESSION TOGETHER...
The Advent Penance Service will be at at our church. Studies have shown that when children see their parents (especially their fathers) practicing the faith, they are much more likely to stay involved in their church. We encourage you to go to the Penance Service as a family! It just might be the most memorable gift you give your kids this month!
Veteran's Day Celebration
We had a great celebration today at our school honoring our veterans! Words cannot express our gratitude to the brave Americans that have kept our country safe through their service in the Armed Forces. Thank you also to our students, teachers, and families for organizing and participating in this event!
Some generous parishioners have already donated the delivery and labor for adding rock to our playground. We will need 50 tons of pea gravel at $30 a ton. If you would be willing to help donate a ton of rock or more, please contact Mr. Arnold at 456-2270 or Paul Lange at 316-644-4437. Thank you!
A Friendly Reminder
Throughout the year,
students may have the
privilege of doing fun dressup
days. On these days,
students need to dress with
safety and modesty in mind.
Students are not allowed to
wear shorts by themselves.
Leggings can only be worn if
a skirt or shorts of
appropriate length are worn
over the leggings. Flip flops
are not permitted by our
insurance carrier as they
could become a safety
hazard. If you have a
question of whether
something is appropriate to
wear, ask before you wear it.
On days when we have
Mass, students should wait
to add distracting clothing or
accessories until after Mass.
The students enjoyed beautiful weather
last Friday for our Walkathon. Once again,
your generosity has surpassed our
expectations. The students raised $1,146.
For St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
The online donations were very successful
Thank you once again, St. Joseph

St. Joseph Parents,
First off, thank you for all your hard work for our
school. We have some great opportunities to earn
more each year through the collection and submission
of Box Tops! Last year we earned $1,108.50 in
box top earnings. It would be great to earn that
much again this year!
I have sent home a fun activity/collection sheet for
your children to complete and return to the school
by 10/20/2017. We have a submission deadline
coming up November 1st, so please gather and
send all the box tops you can collect to the school!
Make sure you check the expiration date! We collect
and submit box tops all year long so feel free
to send them any chance you get.
Congratulations to our 6th grade
volleyball team! On Tuesday they won
their last match of the season against
St. Pats in Kingman. They have spent
most of this season playing against 7th
grade teams in close games. We are so
proud of the positivity and teamwork
they have displayed.
Thank you to Coach Ruth Whitney for
helping these young women grow in skill
