Letter from School Leadership
Dear Parents and Caregivers:
St. Joseph School is more than a school. It is a family that works together to “live in such a way that those who know you but don’t know God will come to know God because they know you”. Our students and faculty see these words in our lobby as they enter each morning and strive to bring those words to life throughout each day.
We do this by providing our students with challenging academic program that inspires our students to exceed their own potential. St. Joseph’s offers a dual track PreK-4 to 8th grade academic program with an enhanced Math program that provides students specialized support on a daily basis. We are proud to announce that we will be able to provide students the same academic design for our Language Arts Program for 2017 – 2018 school year. St. Joseph’s also offers interactive technology resources for all students, including smart boards, document cameras, a full computer lab, two 3-D printers, and 90 chrome book laptops bring textbook words to life. In addition we offer a myriad of extracurricular opportunities for our students, including an ever expanding Robotics Team, an active Theatre Arts program, Art Club, award winning band, and a variety of athletic teams.
The love for learning and continual drive towards academic excellence was recognized this year the U.S. Department of Education. St. Joseph School was awarded The Blue Ribbon status by the U. S. Department of Education because of our high academic standards and achievement in closing the learning gaps identified in standardized testing. It is the highest award a school can receive recognizing the hard work our faculty and students accomplish on a daily basis.
It’s an exciting time to be a part of the St. Joseph School – Fullerton family. We celebrate our past success but also look to the future, which will include a new science lab and updates in technology.
As I tell my faculty and families, my door is always open to your ideas, questions, or concerns. We are here to challenge each other to reach our full potential, as well as care for each other as family should.
I invite you to be a part of our school family. Let us show you our school, answer your questions, and make you feel at home in this special place. Mother Teresa said, “do things for people not because of who they are or what they do in return, but because of who you are.” We are St. Joseph School – Fullerton, home of the Wolfpack and we welcome you to join us as we change the world one student at a time.
Blessings and Peace,
Kenneth J. Pipkin
