Events - St. Joseph School Seattle

Community is not just a thing, it is everything!

At St. Joseph School we recognize that our community is what holds us together. Our community comprises parents, staff and faculty, our students, alumni, grandparents, coaches, parishioners and our dedicated sponsors.

We support each other in the classroom, from the sidelines while cheering, at a speech tournament, through roaring applause following a performance and by coming together in support of our school. We are a group that truly enjoys each others company and we have made sure that there are plenty of opportunities throughout the year to come together.

Hall of Honor Celebration
May 11, 2023

Each year we come together to thank those that have gone above and beyond in support of our school. This support may include financial contributions, legacy gifts, volunteering more than 100 hours, and/or serving on a school committee or commission. We also come together to recognize the incredible work of our alumni. The culmination of the event is the presentation of the Outstanding Alumni Award and the Hall of Honor Award.

The Outstanding Alumni Award is presented to an alum that has used their gifts to serve others and make the world around them a better place. The Hall of Honor Award recognizes a community member that is a prime example of one who seeks the magis, always asking, "what more can I do for my community".
