"Following Our Faith for Our Future"
St. Joseph Celebrates Catholic Schools Week

Ricardo Martin, and Gloria Schumacher, John Paul II Academy Principal pose for a photo during Catholic Schools Week, January 25-30. A busy week of activities focused on our school's theme, "St. Joseph School: Following Our Faith for Our Future."
Celebrated since 1974, this year's annual celebration of Catholic education began with 10:30 Sunday Mass. The school community then participated in a week packed with service projects and fun -- including "Stuff the Bus" with nonperishable food items for the food pantry, the annual volleyball game between the middle school girls and the faculty, a trivia contest, the annual School Carnival, and a visit from local author Jim Neibauer who talked to students about writing and motion picture comedy.
