St. Joseph Catholic School

Back to School Mass and Picnic

Make plans now to attend our annual Back to School Mass & Picnic on August 12th at 5pm! If you have not done so already, please RSVP via the Evite sent to all school families.

If you are new to SJCS, the picnic is a wonderful opportunity for your child to meet his/her teacher(s) and classmates before the first day of school!

This year's event will take place on Saturday, August 12th, beginning with the 5:00 pm Mass and continuing on to the field for the picnic.  School organizations and the YMCA Afterschool will have booths to visit, and spirit wear and pencil bags will be available for purchase. There will also be bounce houses, games, and sno-cones for the kids. Class lists will be posted after dinner, and families will have a chance to meet the teachers.

What to Bring

Hamburgers and hot dogs will be provided by our PTO and grilled by the Dads' Club. Please bring the item listed below according to your last name:

A to F: small water bottles (may be dropped off Friday, 8/11, to be cooled for the picnic)

G to N: individual bags of chips or pretzels

O to Z: cookies or brownies
