TALENT ABOUNDS! Updated information about our talent show.

We are four weeks away from the annual St Joseph Talent Show, and the performers are polishing performances in preparation for the big day.

With so many acts lined up, this year’s show promises to be the best we’ve ever had. In fact, we have scheduled a few extra minutes to fit everyone in.

Holy Thursday, April 13th, following mass, students will gather in the auditorium. The show begins at 945am to ensure that we are ready for an on time dismissal at noon.

What an exciting opportunity for our students to shine.  

Mark your calendars:

Thursday, April 13th; 9:45am

Thank you for your continued support,

Lori Foley
