Barnes & Noble Bookfair - 12/5

Our next library fundraising event is an in-store book fair at Barnes and Noble on Saturday, December 5th.  If you mention St. Joseph's Catholic School at checkout, a percentage of your purchase will be donated to our school. Last year we had a great time and earned a gift card worth over $900 for library materials!

Volunteers are also needed. If you are available to read a story, wrap gifts or decorate bookmarks, we need YOU! Call the office and give your name and phone number and Mrs. Hattemer will contact you.  Thanks for supporting our school library!

Winter Weather Reminder

St. Joseph's will follow Kennewick School District’s closures and delayed starts. For the most up to date information, look on the KSD website: Messages will also be announced on TV and radio stations in the area. When St. Joseph’s School has a 2 hour delay, the Children’s Center will open at 7:00am, instead of 6:00am. When there is a 2 hour delay there will be no AM Preschool, there will be PM Preschool. Be sure to continue listening as sometimes the delays turn into closures.

When school is open or on a two-hour delay during a day of snow and ice we realize that your particular residential street may still be dangerous regardless of how well the main streets have been plowed. If you can’t make it due to the weather we will treat it as an excused absence. Just call or send a note. Your decision regarding the safety of your family will be respected.

Science Olympiad

Our 2015-2016 Science Olympiad team is looking for mentors. Are you looking for creative ways to earn your volunteer hours? Currently we are meeting Thursday mornings from 7:00-7:55 am, and Friday afternoons from 3-4. Volunteers traditionally have helped either once a week, once every other week or whenever they can. You can be flexible with what topics you help with or you can let me assign you a group to work with. If you are interested, think you can help in any way, please contact Catherine Valiant via email:

Discover Tri-Cities Prep
