HSAExecutive CommitteeActivities/Events/FundraisingDocument FolderMeeting MinutesScripCalendar
The Saint Joseph Home and School Association was formed to offer a liaison between the parents and the school. We operate under the guidance of the Saint Joseph School Board. COMMUNICATION: Our monthly meetings, normally held on the first Monday of each month at 7 pm in Guild Hall, offer parents a forum to voice their opinions and concerns. School issues are discussed with questions and answers after each program. Each meeting is approximately one hour, which allows parents to come together and participate in making our school an outstanding educational facility for our children.To make sure your children are benefiting from what the school has to offer each family, it is vital that you attend these meetings throughout the year.  COMMUNITY: The Home and School Association also functions as a catalyst for fundraisers and social functions, which allow families to have fun, develop camaraderie and also keep tuition at manageable levels. We invite all families to take part in our social and family activities. Details of traditional events such as the Back to School Picnic, Mum Parade, Oktoberfest, Auction, Grandparents and Special Friends Day, Lenten Pasta Dinner, Father/Daughter Dance, Mother/Son Bowling, Parent Socials and the Golf Tournament, and more are all discussed at monthly H&S meetings with additional details provided in weekly communication emails from the School Office. Finally, the SJS H&S Association is also about $$$. We are a completely volunteer organization giving our time freely to make Saint Joseph School the “best of the best” when it comes to the education of our children. In doing so, we are dedicated to raising funds to support our school. The Association is always receptive to new ideas and suggestions and are always available to parents before (by appointment) and after our meetings. We ask that every parent take the personal responsibility to support the fundraising events that are conducted throughout the school year.

Hot & Cold Lunch ProgramOrder FormsTab name
The St. Joseph School Hot Lunch Program is offered to students each day of the week.

Menu items include: •  Mondays: grinder sandwiches •  Tuesdays: pasta (varies with sauce, butter, or mac & cheese from week to week) •  Wednesdays and Thursdays: alternates from week to week •  Fridays: pizza This is an OPTIONAL program and the cost in not included in tuition. Hot Lunches are prepared by Bristol TEC Culinary Arts Program. Order forms go home a month prior for families to select lunches and return to the Main Office. You may enclose one payment in one envelope with all ordered lunch slips. Each class is scheduled, throughout the year, to provide baked goods as a snack for Hot Lunch on Tuesdays. The monthly calendar indicates which class is assigned for each Tuesday. St. Joseph School asks that you do not bake or buy items with any peanuts or nut products for the safety of our children with allergies. Our goal is to provide healthy, affordable school lunches for our students. We always strive to expand our options and create new lunch menus to try to satisfy even the picky eaters! For any questions regarding our Hot Lunch Program, please contact the Main Office. Cold (or bagged) lunches: Families choosing to not have students participate in the Hot Lunch Program are welcome to pack a lunch. Students are not guaranteed an opportunity to warm up food so please pack a lunch that can be kept fresh in a student’s lunch box until lunch time and is ready to eat as is. Any specific food allergies in a classroom will be communicated to that class and families are asked to follow specific guidelines set forth by the Bristol/Burlington Board of Health.
