Welcome to St. Joseph School

I am thrilled, honored and incredibly blessed to accept the role as principal at St. Joseph School and to continue the legacy of providing a strong academic and faith filled education for our students. We are so fortunate to have a strong staff and committed families join our parishes to educate in our faith tradition.


In 2016, we opened the doors to our new, safe, handicap accessible facility.  Through generosity and the sharing of time and talent, we built a school to meet the needs of our growing population. The building is now under one roof (including a connection to the church) and is equipped with the latest technology.  This facility is a tremendous testament to our commitment to the future.

St. Joseph School is an integral part of our parishes of St. Joseph, Olney, St. Joseph, Stringtown, and Holy Cross, Wendelin.  Our school provides future parishioners and leaders, so it is vital that we have a strong tie to our churches.  We invite you to our weekly mass, held Wednesdays at 8:05 a.m., to worship and celebrate our school and its children.  Each week, a grade level is responsible for the mass and its gospel message.  Join us to gather in God’s name and share in the joy of our Catholic school. It is always one of the highlights of my week!


The beginning of the new school year marks my 19th year serving students and families of St. Joseph School. My life has been filled with joy, love, learning, and faith in being a part of this school family. I truly believe that God called me to St. Joe, and I am so thankful that I answered that call and discovered my vocation in Catholic education. Serving as a fourth grade teacher, Spanish instructor, athletic director, assistant principal and parent, each role has provided me the opportunity to grow and appreciate being a part of a school that provides so much for the community it serves. I love being a part of this school family! 


This year, we celebrate the theme - “Growing together in Christ” - it is our duty and our privilege to be  part of a community that values discipleship, unity, and growth of the Church. This year’s theme offers a chance to reflect on the growth in Christ that each student receives throughout their years as a member of our school and parishes. 


Let’s take the time to celebrate growth; in our school, its children, and the successes of our faith community. We are truly blessed to offer this opportunity and thank you for sharing your children with us.


With sincere gratitude,


Josy Hart
