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.
