Outreach Ministry

Our middle school is required to fulfill a set number of service hours for each grade, with a particular focus of preparing our eighth grade students for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Students also have the opportunity to participate in several fundraising activities through our school for the benefit of different charitable organizations within our local community suchs as: Mary’s House, St. Vincent dePaul Society, and Providence House. We also allow for our families to reflect the same calling of commitment to Christian service by participating in several service activities through our Parent Teacher Organization with activities that benefit our students and school community throughout the school year.

Extracurricular

St. Joseph Catholic School values the education of the total child and is committed to affording our parents the opportunity to expose their children to extracurricular activities that will enhance their overall development and growth as persons. We currently offer the following activities through our After-School Academy:

Guitar – is offered once a week (Monday through Thursday) at a cost of $30.00 per private lesson (30 minutes). Mr. Joseph Bonds, a St. Joseph Church parishioner, teaches the classes. He is classically trained and has performed in Master Classes under Christopher Parkening (Columbia Artists), Sharon Isbin (Juilliard School), Andrew York (Los Angeles Guitar Quartet) and Benjamin Verdery (Yale University). Mr. Bonds is a retired English teacher. Students in the third grade or higher can sign up for these classes. Younger students may be able to sign up at Mr. Bond’s discretion.

Piano – is offered once a week on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday at a cost of $30.00 per private lesson (30 minutes). Ms. Lisa Daye is a local professional pianist, with over 13 years of experience as a music teacher for the Talented Arts Division of Caddo Parish Schools. Her music education includes 8 years of piano, voice, and music theory through the Royal Conservatory of Canada. Ms. Daye greatly enjoys teaching children how to interpret the “story” of the musical piece, and strongly believes in the importance of mutual respect as the foundation for a productive teacher/student relationship.

Code Ninjas – Code Ninjas is offered once a week for 8 week sessions with a Code Sensei in the technology lab. Call the office for more information on sessions and times.

Music lessons – will begin after Labor Day. The discipline policy for the After-School Academy is the same as the policy for students during the school day. The rules are in the St. Joseph Student Handbook that is distributed at the beginning of the school year.

Music lessons are billed monthly (on the 20th) in advance through TADS. Therefore, the first billing in September will be for the months September and October. Code Ninjas are billed by sessions.

Athletics

St. Joseph students are given the opportunity to be formed in the field of athletic competition. Our Falcons are expected to maintain a high standard of academic success in order to participate in such optional activities. Students who fail to do so will be put on academic probation. Students are able to participate in the different activities once athletic fees have been paid.

Cheerleading is available beginning in 2nd grade to all girls. 2nd and 3rd grade girls participate on Pep Squad. 4th and 5th grade girls participate on Junior Varsity. 6th, 7th, and 8th grade participate on Varsity. The squads practice weekly, and cheer at basketball and football games. They, also, perform at the fall and spring pep rally.
