Buddy Programs

We are proud of our community spirit and are pleased to offer a warm and welcoming environment for new families and students as they advance through St. Joseph School.

Buddy Families

Designed to help new families become part of St. Joseph School, new and existing families are paired up so the new family has someone they can go to when they have questions about St. Joe’s. The existing family is asked to “show them the ropes,” help introduce the family, and check in with them to be sure their transition to St. Joe’s is as easy as possible.

Big Buddies

The Big Buddy program pairs older students with younger students to attend Mass and other activities throughout the school year.

Bus Buddies

Older students are assigned to guide Kindergartners to and from buses safely.
