Our History

elem sch

St. Joseph School
was constructed in late 1949 and early 1950.  It was dedicated on June 18, 1950. The original school had four classrooms and an auditorium. It was staffed by three School Sisters of Notre Dame, who arrived on August 28, 1950. When it officially opened on September 11, 1950 there were 180 children in grades one through six.

Enrollment grew with each passing year, as did the school’s overall facility. Within two years of the original opening, four more classrooms were added to the original building. In 1960 a second school building was constructed which added an additional eight classrooms, a library and additional administrative offices.  As we move forward we will continue to grow...we hope you will consider coming along for our journey!
