September 2017

Dear St. Joseph the Worker Families,

Welcome to the 2017-18 academic year at St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Academy. My name is Kathleen Schneck, newly appointed principal of SJWCA. I am excited to meet and get to know you and your children this year. I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing summer and are feeling prepared for the school year ahead.

There are many things to look forward to this year as we focus on the common goal of providing each child with a high quality Catholic education. One of my goals for 2017-18 is to focus on developing new programs, events and opportunities that will prepare students of SJWCA for the future. Be sure to keep an eye on the school website for updates.

Our learning community is dedicated to educating each child cognitively and spiritually. Every day is a new opportunity to develop our childrens character with help of the Holy Spirit. Educators rely on your help. We ask that you ensure there are daily routines at home such as reading with your child, discussing what is going on at school, monitoring use of technology and getting a restful nights sleep.

A learning community depends on each member to be responsible for their part. There will also be many opportunities for families to engage in events that celebrate the childrens accomplishments. Being present at school events reinforces to your child the commitment you have to their education.

I am honored to serve as principal of St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Academy. I am looking forward to seeing you at Back to School Night on September 13, 2017 at 6:00pm.

God Bless you and your families.

Sincerely,

Kathleen Schneck
