St. Joseph Catholic Middle School

St. Joseph Catholic Middle School Student Support Services personnel collaborates with classroom teachers, parents, Special Education Consultants and administration to provide a challenging, yet supportive environment for each student.

A smaller advisory class provides support at the end of the day which focuses on helping the students to become better organized. Help with school work is also provided during this advisory time. After School Homework Club is available two afternoons per week to also help with assignments and organization.

Child study meetings address students identified with concerns, where the staff and parents will determine the need for evaluation, and with parental input, develop a plan of action. Parents are encouraged to contact our principal with any concerns about their child.

St. Joseph Catholic Elementary and Preschool

The Instructional Specialist at St. Joseph Catholic Elementary teaches literacy to students who need intervention beyond the general education classroom. The student’s classroom teacher sets the literacy goals, and when applicable, the student’s special education consultants, using each student’s current data and classroom learning needs.

The students attend the Learning Zone program daily to have additional literacy instruction in small groups. These lessons are individualized to the students’ learning styles and needs. The classroom teacher and the Instructional Specialist meet regularly to coordinate lessons, goals, assessments, and analyze recent data and research-based instructional learning practices. St. Joseph Catholic Elementary Instructional Specialist holds a master’s degree in reading and has over twenty years of teaching experience.
