PTO Agenda - January 7


"We choose to send our children to St. Joseph’s Catholic School because it is a wonderful community of caring, like-minded people who share our faith and values.  We feel it is an important long term investment in our children’s future to be in a learning environment where faith is the center, expectations are high and there is emphasis on formation of the whole child."

- Justin and Angela Baerlocher
