HASA - Seeking Volunteers!

The Saint Joseph Grade School Home and School Association (HASA) has over 30 committees and events that depend on parent support and stewardship. We appreciate your generosity of time, talent, and resources to help our students, teachers, and SJGS. There are many ways each parent can participate – some are one-time events, some are ongoing, some are on the front lines, some are behind the scenes – thus making it possible for all families with varied schedules to contribute their time and talents. See the HASA website for more details on how you can help!

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.

Goal: $900,000  |  Current Total: $842,835 (as of August 1)
Our target date is here but it is not too late to help us reach our goal! Drop your pledge forms at Mass or at the parish or school office!

We are almost there and we need your help! Our goal is to secure $900,000 in pledges so that we can begin the final phase of our campaign projects -- a school addition with classrooms and a gymnasium, and improved green space -- that will serve our parish in numerous ways for generations to come! 

The generations of Saint Joe faithful that have come before us have left us a great legacy. I feel that we have been blessed in many ways, and I give thanks to God. I pray that each of you, too, will see God’s glory in the work before us, be inspired by the underlying mission we seek to strengthen, and find within yourselves a desire to give in gratitude.

Thank you to those who have already stepped up with great enthusiasm towards this initiative! I continue to be humbled by the generosity within our Saint Joseph community. Know that I welcome any questions you might have as you prayerfully consider your support. For your convenience, you may download a pledge form here. Also see our frequently asked questions.

May God bless our parish named in honor of his faithful servant Saint Joseph, and may God bless you and your family this Easter Season!

Fr. Kevin Russeau, C.S.C.
Pastor

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.
