Drop-off/Pickup Procedures

Thank you for helping to make drop-off and pickup of our school children a safe and efficient process. A reminder to please enter our school drive via Colfax to St. Louis for both drop-off and pickup, and also please pull as far forward as possible towards the church before dropping in the morning. It is also helpful for children to be ready to exit the vehicles immediately in the morning. Please see the linked procedures for more details.

Saint Joseph Named "Four Star School"

For the fifth straight year, Saint Joseph Grade School has been named a "Four Star School" by the State of Indiana. SJGS is once again the only elementary school in South Bend to receive the honor. In order to achieve this designation, a school must be in the top 25th percentile of schools in two ISTEP-based categories. Additionally, a qualifying school must have earned an “A” in the state’s accountability system and be accredited by the Indiana Department of Education. Congratulations also to our other area Catholic school honorees: Saint Joseph High School, Marian High School, Queen of Peace School in Mishawaka, and Saint Pius X School in Granger. A total of 287 schools received the award throughout the state. See the Indiana DOE announcement for more info.

Scrip Minimize

The Saint Joseph Scrip Program offers our school the opportunity to establish an ongoing means of raising funds without asking supporters to spend any more money than they already do in their daily routine. We encourage all families and friends to learn more and participate in this important opportunity for Saint Joseph Grade School.

Saint Joseph has implemented a new feature to its Scrip Program - 50% of family profit earned over $300 can be credited forward to next year's tuition! View a letter from our pastor and principal for more details!

The Scrip Office is typically open Monday - Friday mornings until 11am, but the hours may vary. Please call 574-210-8000 if you need to reach us in the office. If the Scrip Office is closed, scrip may be purchased in the school office until 3:30 Monday - Thursday and until 2:45 on Fridays. Scrip is also sold on the weekends after Masses, and in the parish office over school breaks.
