Welcome Note from the Pastor for New School Year 2021-2022
Dear Parents and Students
Last year was not very easy for any one of us; it was a time of loss, grief, pain, suffering and trials, but at the same time, it has been a time of blessings in disguise for many of us. We have struggled through the year due to the coronavirus, however, at the same time we have also become creative in facing these challenges. The challenges still confront us as we step into the new academic year. I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to our School Principal, Faith Piazza, for her leadership and hard work and to our Assistant Principal, Krystie Medeiros, for her diligent counsel. I feel so blessed with all our teachers and staff members who not only share their knowledge but their lives for the betterment of our students. I am deeply indebted to each of them. I am also very thankful to all the volunteers who selflessly share their time, talents, and treasure.
Dear parents and students, I cordially welcome each of you to St. Joseph School, which is not only a home of learning but also a family of loving and caring people. I would like us to work together for the holistic development of our children who are the future of our family, society and our nation. Dear parents, your cooperation with our teachers is a must for the betterment of our students. It is by helping each other that we can grow together. As we start our new academic year, which has its own blessings and challenges, I wish you all the best and pray for the blessings of our loving God on each of you. Let us work together for the holistic growth of our beloved students.
Warmest Welcome to all of you to our New Academic Year at St. Joseph School.
Fr. Stephen Banjare, sscc
Pastor, St. Joseph
