St. Joseph High School is a Catholic, Christian educational community formed in the Lasallian tradition whose MISSION is to provide a Christian education for young women and men of diverse economic and cultural backgrounds. We inspire these young women and men to discover their God-given talents, empower them to be lifelong learners and challenge them to achieve their potential as compassionate women and men of faith.
For three days in September, photographers, wardrobe personnel, lighting technicians and managers guided 159 student-athletes and fine-arts performers through candid pictures and poses. Examples of the photographs were soon posted and students gathered to marvel at how professional they looked as they held hope that they might soon appear in a professional catalog.
With his degree in Marketing and his love of sports, Ricky Palermo, SJHS Class of '12, has worked hard to get where he is at today. A member of the FOX Sports North team since January of 2017, Ricky is currently a producer-in-training as he prepares to work on pre- and post-game shows for the Minnesota Twins, the Timberwolves and the Wild. He will also work with the Milwaukee Brewers and the Bucks. Congratulations, Ricky!
How does a teacher keep students engaged as the days wind down in the school year? For students in the Intro to Computer Programming class, that means getting a taste of Raspberry Pi, a low-cost computer. The device can be used to create home media centers, gaming systems, and to operate robots using two popular programming languages–Scratch and Python.
This year we celebrate the Tercentenary (1719 – 2019) of the death of St. John Baptist de La Salle. During each month we will recall a legacy in the history of the Christian Brothers. This month we pray with Brother Benilde Romancon in mind. When Pope Pius XII beatified Brother Benildus Romancon in 1948 he stated that Brother Benildus was known for “doing common things in an uncommon way”. Lord, guide me so that like Saint Benildus, I may do things in uncommon ways.
