Each morning, students recite the SJUS Creed
I know St. Joseph’s school is a place where I am safe and happy.
I am part of an important and caring community.
I will learn in my own way by being proactive and thinking win-win.
I know I will make mistakes, but I will put first things first and learn from my mistakes.
I will listen first to understand so I can be understood.
I know we can work together and become life-long learners.
I will balance my life being an artist, and athlete, a dancer and a musician.
But above all else…I am a thinker, and I will strive to be a life-long learner.
St. Joseph’s students will approach life embracing creativity and innovation, equipped with skills and knowledge to continue their learning within our school environment and beyond. The educational staff will maintain and reinforce the focus of the New York State Standards, skills, and values through continued mentoring and instruction.
St. Joseph’s will strive for collectivism and collaboration, maintaining transparency and truth. Our culture celebrates diversity and appreciates a broader understanding of individual perspectives. The staff will relate to the parents and communities in an open, welcoming interactive manner, with a process to problem solve and grow.
Our students will be eager, adaptable and proactive lifelong learners who will be successful members of society dedicated to the service of others and rising to their fullest potential.
