 2017-18 School Theme       
"Lord I Lift Your Name On High!"

Dear Parents:

Saint Jospeh Grade School is partnering with Donovan Catholic to adopt Sacred Heart Elementary School in Rockport, Texas that was severely damaged in the Hurricane. The SJGS faculty and staff are preparing teacher gift bags with initial desk supplies for when they return to temporary school buildings in January.

Our student body is conducting a $2.00 paid dress down day on December 1st. All proceed will go to purchasing school supplies for the students at Sacred Heart. It is part of our mission to provide service where needed and in doing so, we are teaching the children the importance of helping those in need.


Holiday toy collections will be starting soon. The Pre-K, 1s t and 2nd grade will support Brandon’s Elves while the third through eighth grade will support the collection of toys for C.H.O.P in collaboration with the Donovan Powerlifting team.  More details will come via circulation.  



Distribution of report cards is December 7, 2017

This year the Diocese of Trenton is doing away with paper copies of the report card for Grades 3 – 8.  You will have to view the report card via Parent Access.

Parent Access will close on December 1st for teachers to complete the first trimester grades and will reopen for your viewing on December 7th.  You will be able to print out a copy of the report card if you wish.

Grades K- 2 will still receive paper copies of the report card for this year, but will change for next year.


Even though Registration is not until February 7, 2018 the diocese has made the FACTS Financial Grant/Aid application available on-line now at:

website: https://online.factsmgt.com.  Deadline for Round 1 is March 2, 2018
