Welcome From the Principal

Dear Parent,

Welcome to Saint Joseph Catholic Elementary School providing a faith based education to students in preschool through eighth grade.  Our tradition of excellence began in 1877. I am blessed, humbled and honored to be a part of the rich heritage and strong mission of Saint Joseph Catholic Elementary School. As I walk through the hallways I am inspired by the culture of love, family and ideals that our young people display each and every day.

Saint Joseph Catholic School has much to celebrate. Our students are experiencing unparalleled learning opportunities. We build a strong foundation by providing excellent academics, state of the art technology, service learning, visual arts and athletics. Saint Joseph Elementary School foster opportunities for our students to grow in faith and leadership into the young men and women God has called them to be. The development of the whole person remains the heart of a Saint Joseph Catholic School education. We strive each day to educate our students in a Christ-centered learning environment founded in faith, joined as family, and focused on the future.

We teach math and reading all day, but what we really want is for our children to walk away at the end of the day feeling loved, respected and honored. This is our mission. This is our prayer.

I look forward to the opportunity to meet you and your family.

God Bless you,

Nancy R. Essary
