Greetings Parents,

I have met many parents and community members in the last few weeks at Saint Joseph Regional Academy, school events and church. Working with the faculty and HSA has been a pleasure. We have the same focal point, the students. I am impressed with the student’s hard work, reliability and respect. Saint Joseph Regional Academy is a great place to work. I am very pleased to have been chosen for this post. One of my goals is to increase the valuable partnerships with the church, local universities, businesses, public service organizations, and residents, so that our school can grow and thrive. Our faculty and staff approach education from a whole-child perspective that challenges the hearts, minds and spirit of all the children.

Our faculty & Staff for the 2017-2018 is as follows: Preschool Teachers- Ileana Mohammed and Kathleen Kuzo, Transitional Kindergarten Teachers- Dana Wilson and Michelle Antiga, Kindergarten Teacher- Miss Marouchoc, First Grade Teacher- Miss deVillers, Second Grade Teacher- Miss Grube, Third Grade Teacher- Miss Tucker, Fourth Grade Teacher- Mrs. McCall, Fifth Grade Teacher- Mrs. Klein-Newton, Sixth Grade Teacher-Miss Gilbert, Seventh and Eighth Grade Teacher-Miss Hebding, Computer Teacher- Mrs. Oblas, Music Teacher- Mr. Cressley, Gym Teacher- Mrs. Moore and Maintenance Supervisor Gary Heydt, and of course Miss Bernadette, secretary, who will be changing her work hours to one day a week.

I encourage you to explore our website and hope that you return often to learn about the many exciting changes that will occur. One change you will notice is the MyLocker link on the web page. I have created an account that gives the school a percentage of the profit on any order. What is great about this link is that you can customize clothing and other items with your school color, name, grade, logo, etc. If you have time, it costs nothing to explore the site and create shirts or other items.  

Some reminders: Our Hot Lunch Program will be ordering out to the vendors on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Soft Pretzel Day ($0.50 per) will now be on Tuesdays. All families have the choice to pay for certain things through Paypal. The “Payment Center” on our website has access to all your payment options. We do post the school calendar and lunch forms on the website among other important paperwork. Finally, PLEASE all paperwork sent home back to school as soon as possible.

Have a great day!

Dr. Cooper
