The Advent Penance Service will be this Sunday at 4:00 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!


-3 more days to donate items for the Baby Shower for Jesus. Our Tower of Diapers is almost taller than the Christmas tree!

-10 more days left for our 30 Day Prayer to St. Joseph. It is on the back again. If you haven't been able to join us so far, it's not to late to join in and you can call it a novena!
 
-NO AFTER SCHOOL CLUB NEXT WEEK! We will resume After School Club on Jan. 9.

The best part of my week has been listening to the students practice with Miss Sneath for the concert next Wednesday. They sound wonderful and will definitely lift your heart! Please plan to have your child to the auditorium by 6:45. Students are expected to wear their Sunday best! Please, no jeans, flipflops, or spaghetti straps.

Next week we will begin collecting items for expectant mothers that we will donate to Birthline in Wellington. They are in need of gently used newborn sleepers, onesies, blankets, 4 oz. bottles, pacifiers, bibs, burp pads, newborn toys, teething rings, and newborn or Size 1 diapers. Please consider donating to this great cause! We will collect items until Dec. 20.

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!

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

this year!

Thank you once again, St. Joseph

families!

Currently we have 31 households that

have joined the Dillons Community

Rewards program and linked to our

school to help support it! Thank you

very much! In the last 3 months, while

shopping at Dillons they have helped

earn us a $130 donation! Thank you! If

you are interested in signing on to help

support our school through Dillons,

please look at the information under

How You Can Help in the Parents

section of our website!

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.

Thank you,

Jordan Hollis

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

and sportsmanship.

Our school Spelling Bee was Wednesday, September 27th. Winner was Bella Andra and runner-up was Jaedyn Jones. Great job to all who participated!
