SJCS 2016-2017 Annual Report


St. Joseph Catholic School 2016 - 2017 Annual Report. Blue Ribbon School of Excellence

2016-2017 Annual Report

The mission of St. Joseph Catholic School is

to educate each student by embracing our faith and upholding academic excellence

within a Catholic community devoted to the whole child.

Blue Ribbon School Celebration

A word from our Principal

Dear parents and friends of the school,

What an amazing school year we had this past year. The school

was once again named a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the

Department of Education. In order to earn the award, a school must

demonstrate students’ achievement is within the top 15% of all schools

in the nation. This award is only earned by 50 private schools each year,

and it demonstrates what a commitment to excellence we have from

our school community—students, teachers, and parents, alike. We all

work hard, because these children are worth it!

Your generous support of the school has allowed us to do a number

of things this past year, but one much-needed improvement involved

our technology here at St. Joseph Catholic School. We were able to add

new wireless routers to increase our wireless capabilities; we increased

bandwidth for faster internet access, and the addition of new devices

brought technology into even more classrooms. It is always so exciting

to see the learning that takes place within the classrooms using the

technology—the children never cease to amaze me.

Our goal each year is to provide an exceptional education, both spiritual

and academic, to the children within our charge. Your continued financial

support of the school is so greatly appreciated—thank you! We hold

each of you within our prayers at our school Mass, and hope that you

hold us, and the gift of Catholic education, in your prayers, too.

Thank you.

Giving Opportunities


The Annual Fund bridges the gap between tuition and the cost to

educate. It includes proceeds from the Grandparent Lend-A-Hand

and Cougar Pride campaigns. This important fund helps SJCS grow.


As part of the Annual Fund, the Grandparent Lend-A-Hand Campaign

has become an essential part of our fundraising efforts. Established

in 2010, this important fund has raised money to improve the school

Media Center and add technology upgrades to our school. Thank you

Grandparents for your unending support of our school.


GRACE is a student scholarship organization (SSO) established by

the Archdiocese providing tuition assistance to families with financial

need. Donors can designate specific schools - like St. Joseph Catholic

School - to receive their donation. A taxpayer in Georgia can “use” part

of his Georgia income tax to provide scholarships for students entering

Catholic schools in Georgia. This occurs because the tax payer receives

a 100% tax credit against his GA tax liability for the amount donated to

GRACE Scholars. Therefore, money that was going to pay taxes is being

“used” to support Catholic education for those in need.


This fund was established in memory of Lisa W. Moon - beloved

and devoted mother of SJCS students Sean and Chase. The interest from

this fund is used in our Performing Arts Department.


This fund is available to families suffering temporary financial hardship.

Each winter, SJCS hosts an Annual Silent Auction & Gala. Fun and creative themes have included Denim & Diamonds,

Speakeasy Soiree and in 2017, we celebrated our Blue Ribbon Award. Attendees bid on thousands of dollars in donated

products, vacations, and services, in addition to the popular SJCS exclusives like Carpool Queen, the beloved school quilt,

and the 2nd grade communion runner! Attendees take part in the lively Paddle Call, where donations are directed

toward a specific need for the school, whereas auction proceeds are directed toward our school’s Mortgage Debt Reduction

campaign. Thank you to the committee volunteers, sponsors, and attendees for your continued support of this fun-filled

fundraising event.
