Service has always been a focal point of Catholic education at St. Joseph School - Fullerton. Service to others is one way for our school family to encounter Jesus' presence and further connect with the Lord.
Principal, Mrs. Christina Ashby, explains, “There will be designated focus months throughout the school year during which students, teachers, and faculty come together to help our community.” Students will not only learn about the service project, but will also learn the meaningful lesson of why we are helping those in need.
