A Message From Our Principal

I am a firm believer in the superiority of Catholic education which I believe provides a most appropriate model for later learning and later life. My personal standards and characteristics are consistent with the values of the Church and its ministry. I promise to be dedicated, compassionate, patient, and professional in my approach to the educational process and to the welfare of our children. I strive to achieve the best educational outcomes for our students.  They will fondly recall their St. Joe’s years as an essential component of their early educational experience. 
Our new unified school, Preschool - Grade 8, will be a place of academic rigor, deep faith, and supportive teachers and staff.  I am deeply committed to improving and shaping the curricula at our school. One of my first decisions as Interim Principal in Spring 2020 was to purchase a writing and grammar program.  When COVID-19 struck, I secured IXL as an online comprehensive curriculum to supplement the remote learning that our dedicated teachers were providing.  Together, with our Interim Head of School, Dr, Joseph Barnes, we will continue to acquire the most appropriate curriculum to meet the wide-ranging skill sets of our students.  
I want all our students to be a part of something great and to fall in love with learning. I want us all to strive to be better than we were yesterday.  Thank you for your trust and faith as we advance the mission of our school together. I am always here for you. May God continue to bless us all.
In Partnership,
Lauren Solomon
