At St. Joseph School, we encourage students to participate in our community beyond the classroom walls. We offer several extracurricular activities and opportunities for our students.
The Diocesan Sports Program consists of an intra-Diocesan competition in basketball, volleyball, and track. All boys and girls grades 4-8 are encouraged to participate. Practices and games are held outside of school hours. Academic standards, behavior codes, and eligibility requirements are explained in the sports packet available on RenWeb.
Classes for new altar servers are for students in grades 4-8 and are scheduled through the Parish Office.
This year, we have once again partnered with Bricks 4 Kidz to offer after school learning opportunities to children ages 5 to 12. From their website: "Bricks 4 Kidz® provides educational programs that focuses on introducing children to principles of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) using LEGO ® bricks."
Students in grades K-8 may participate.
National Junior Honor Society
National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is a service organization for which 7th and 8th grade students may be eligible. Membership is based on scholarship, character, service, citizenship, and leadership. Active members must follow St. Joseph Catholic School's NJHS guidelines, which are in line with the national charter.
Girls grades K-8 and boys grades 1-8 may participate. Most meetings are held at St. Joseph Catholic School if permission to use a classroom is granted by teacher and principal.
Students Against Destructive Decisions
The Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) program provides students in grades 7-8 with prevention and intervention tools to deal with…destructive behaviors. The members then share grade-appropriate information with the entire school population.
Student Council is a service organization, which encourages leadership by involving students in student government. Students in grades 5-8 may become members of Student Council. Class elections for representatives are held in the fall, and school-wide elections for officers for the next school year are held in the spring.
