School Prayer to St. Joseph
Blessed Joseph, husband of Mary, be with us this day.
You protected and cherished the Virgin; loving the Child Jesus as Your Son,
You rescued Him from the danger of death.
Defend the Church, the household of God, purchased by the blood of Christ.
Guardian of the Holy Family, be with us in our trials.
May your prayers obtain for us the strength to flee from error and wrestle with the powers of corruption so that in life we may grow in holiness and in death rejoice in the crown of victory.
St. Joseph Catholic is a school that is grounded in its Catholic faith. Our faith allows us to help develop our students into well rounded Christian citizens who will be proud to make the world a better place to live.
Why Catholic Education?
A Catholic education provides children with academic excellence enhanced with traditional Christian values. Catholic school teachers have the unique opportunity to mold every aspect of a child’s growth and development. Foremost in this development is the spiritual – educators teach the message of Jesus. Through prayer, religious instruction, liturgies, and daily interaction, students become rooted in faith.
Hallmarks of Catholic schools include high academic standards, self discipline, safety, and a sense of community and belonging. Teachers and staff model respect for all and an acceptance of each child’s talents, abilities, and personal challenges. Educators create a safe, loving environment that encourages students to believe in their capabilities and to work toward their potential. A variety of learning strategies are used to connect with the child’s framework of understanding. A strong core curriculum is complemented with enrichment programs. Technology, drama, music, French language instruction and athletic programs add to the diversity of a child’s experiences and prepare the individual for an ever-changing world in which critical thinking is not only a habit, but a way of life.
St. Joseph Catholic School, as a member of the Evergreen School Division is committed to constantly seek new ways to better serve our students.
Parents are recognized as the primary educators of their children. They collaborate with teachers and administrators as partners in education.
