St. Joseph Grade School

  • Our mission at St. Joseph Grade School, since its inception in 1932 and for the years to come, is the development of children into caring individuals with sincerely held Christian beliefs.
  • We recognize that achieving our mission requires sensitivity to changing family values in a changing world.
  • But we are confident that it is a world where fundamental values have an essential role. We prepare today for tomorrow, as we begin preparation for the next millennium, a place where our children will need different skills and attitudes to live in a global community.
  • Our present students face challenges that will necessitate higher level thinking and reasoning skills to compete in a technologically advanced world. St. Joseph Grade School was established to foster "Catholic education as an expression of the mission entrusted by Jesus to the Church He founded".
  • By integrating Christian values into the total school program, we seek to develop a strong and active community, uniting the entire school in a spirit of friendliness, cooperation and service that reaches out into the world.
