Principal Saint Joseph School
As I reflect on some of the unsettling events transpiring in our world today, I see a possible correlation with our nation’s attempts to replace many of the God-given laws handed down through Moses and our Lord Jesus Christ, and the movement away from the teachings of some of the great philosophers, such as Aristotle and Socrates.
The 10 Commandments support a productive and peaceful society, but we have attempted to amend them to better suit our lifestyles. By doing so, we have enacted laws to support pornography, greed, disrespect for life and personal financial gain, instead of ones that promote the greater good.
I am proud to be part of Saint Joseph School in Martinsburg, where the Lord’s will continues to be the primary focus. Parents want their children to receive the best education possible, and many want that education to have a religious focus. Our school is a place where entire families can experience a higher level of learning through faith-based teaching; 21st-century instruction; community involvement; and extracurricular activities. We strive to meet the spiritual, intellectual, physical and social-emotional needs of all learners, and our teachers work to help students build positive relationships.
While not all of the students attending Saint Joseph School are Catholic, they all are exposed to an education rooted in the belief that they were created by a loving God who wants them to do their best to not only gain knowledge, but grow in faith and commit to serving the Lord by treating all with love, respect and dignity.
Serving our families doesn’t end when the bell rings. We offer before- and after-school care for our students, too.
We are already beginning to plan for the next school year. Open enrollment for new families begins March 1 for those whose children are in preschool through eighth grade. If you would like to learn more about our curriculum, tour the school buildings and meet our faculty and administrators, we are hosting open houses from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Feb. 19 and March 24 at 110 E. Stephen St.
Come learn how a faith-based education can help chart a more peaceful course for the world.
