 Students Make a Big SPLASH Raising Awareness and Money for LLS

Throughout Catholic Schools Week, Saint Joseph students participated in many activities to raise awareness and money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS).  They listened to a LLS rep at an assembly, had a dress down day, put on a Penny War, and raffled off chances to soak the pastor (Fr. Jared Orndorff), the principal (Mrs. Carrie DePasquale), and the X-STREAM science teacher (Miss Megan Fearon).  The students brought in so many pennies, we are still counting to come up with the total money raised!  As of 2/5/18, the students surpassed their $750 goal with $1,000 in donations alone.

Belief Statement: We believe all children can learn and should be taught in a safe learning environment. We believe that all children should be given the opportunity to be taught with a variety of instructional approaches to support their learning and to empower children to become confident, life-long learners. We believe students need to apply their learning in meaningful contexts. We believe a student’s self-esteem is enhanced by positive relationships and mutual respect among and between students and staff. We believe parents are the first educators of their children; however, parents, teachers, administrators, and the Church community share the responsibility for preparing the children to be productive members of the Catholic Church and society.
