This annual afternoon of fun for students includes a gym full of activities, outside activities & BINGO, a cakewalk-prizes & treats for all!

Contact person is Amber Johnson.
We need people to come at 10:30 for set-up, at noon to work the games and from 2- 3 for cleanup.
Many prizes provided but we still need…
Juice donations, water donations or pop donations (any size bottle)
Bring “gently used” stuffed animals and books to Youth Room any day before June 1
Small bags or chips or cupcakes or muffins for the Cakewalk
Bring for us to use and return to you-hats, necklaces, sunglasses, etc., for PHOTO BOOTH!
Other things to know
This is a non-uniform day
Sending Sunblock to school that day is a good idea
Teachers request that students return to their classrooms at the conclusion of the Fun Festival to be with their classmates and teacher….
one last activity and prayer together before
the year is over.
Thank you for honoring this request
St. Joseph's School Personnel Changes for 2016-17ÂÂÂÂÂ
The following faculty/staff members will be leaving St. Joseph's School at the end of this school year.
We thank them for their dedication to the education and well-being of the children at our school.
Mrs. Carmen Watland will be our new secretary.
Mrs. Cindy Eckert will be our new preschool teacher.
As of this date, we are not planning to have a Spanish class in 2016-2017. St. Joseph's School Board and I will review this program's structure to see if we wish to reinstate the program in 2017-2018. Parents will have the opportunity to let us know their thoughts on the Spanish program in the End-of-Year Survey that will be on School Speak in June.
Mrs. Hebeisen will return if we are not able to find a new phy-ed teacher, but has requested that we begin process of looking for a new person. Please contact our school office if you know of someone who might be interested in this position.
