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!

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
