A NOTE FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL

John Hickey

It's time to saddle up for the auction! I have been looking forward to this one for some time, and it's almost here. Hopefully, every family at St. Joseph will be at one (or both!) of our auction nights. From cake walks to some of the best student art projects I've seen, it is going to be great. Thank you to everyone who has worked so hard to prepare for this auction, especially our chair Kim Nisbet! I'm looking forward to seeing the inner cowgirl and cowboy in everyone this weekend!
