St. Joseph has been an amazing place for more than 100 years. St. Joseph has been a place to learn to read and write, to add and subtract, and to appreciate the fundamentals of education and faith on which the rest of our lives are built.
As alumni, the most influential and practical impact of St. Joseph was the relationships formed, the memories created, and the life lessons learned. We did not always understand the impact St. Joseph had on us until we ventured out into life, lived a little, and realized how truly important these roots would become. The lifelong friendships, the inspiring lessons, or the caring influence of a teacher may still impact your life today.
The alumni program at St. Joseph keeps these relationships and memories alive. Whether you want to reconnect with the school, host a class reunion, volunteer your time, get in touch with a former classmate or teacher, donate in some way, or just visit us, let us know! We'd love to hear what you've been doing and take a tour down memory lane. Contact us at email@example.com.

On October 7, 2011, sixty-two members of the St. Joseph School Class of 1966 along with 25 spouses gathered for their 45th class reunion in the school's auditorium for an evening of sharing stories, memories, and lots of laughter. Below is a photo taken that evening of the classmates in attendance standing in the same location they did for their First Holy Communion in 1960. To see more photos from the reunion, click here to be connected to the photo gallery of Catherine Anstett.A group of classmates from the Class of 1966 has been gathering several times each year for dim sum lunch together at the House of Hong Restaurant in Seattle and are always looking to expand the guest list. If you would like to know when they will be dining together again, please contact Ross Case, '66 or Jim Peterson, '66

Current 8th grader Maya Murphy, '17, graciously led the alums on school tours of the cafeteria, the newly expanded lobby, the LRC and junior high floor. Ms. Marion, Mrs. Andrews, Mrs. Sauter, and Mr. Woletz accompanied the tour and reminisced with the alums about old projects, quizzes and past memories.
