Our Students St. Joseph's Catholic Community of Grand Rapids is a vibrant faith community located in northern Minnesota. St. Joseph's School is an important part of the St. Joseph's Catholic Community.  We love our students and are privileged to work in partnership with our school families.
Academic Opportunities Academic opportunities at St. Joseph's School include Math Masters, Science Fair, Spelling Bee, Reading Rainbow Writers' Contest, Geography Bee, and numerous field trips. We value the academic enrichment these experiences bring to our children's education. Summer Tutoring 
Service Activities No matter the age, our parish community embraces and serves everyone when we join together in sharing the importance of Catholic faith in our lives.  Students have donated their time through a school marathon by raking leaves for those in need.  Some students worked at the Food Self or collected donations for Habitat for Humanity, Grace House and the Itasca County Autism Group, and God's Little Angels' Orphanage in Haiti.

Welcome to the First Week of School!

As we begin our school year, we ask for God's blessing on our children, parents, teachers and staff:
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful.
And kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.
And you will renew the face of the earth. 
Lord, by the light of the Holy Spirit 
you have taught the hearts of your faithful.

In that same Spirit 
help us to relish what is right 
and always rejoice in your consolation.

                    We ask this through Christ, our Lord.  Amen

The teachers and staff have been VERY busy getting ready for the

first day of school.  We are so happy to see everyone, and we look forward

to another great year at St. Joseph's School!
