Dear Parents of St. Joseph Catholic School and PSR Students:
This summer we will be hosting our first ever Totus Tuus program. The program is 5 days in length and is offered to those students in Grades 1 through 6 for the 2019-2020 school year in the morning and for students in middle school and high school in the evening.
Grades 1-6: July 22nd - 26th, 9:00am - 3:00pm
Middle school & High school: July 21st-25th, 7:30pm – 9:45pm
This year’s curriculum is “2019: The Sacraments and The Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary".
The Program begins at 9:00 a.m. each day and concludes at 3:00 p.m. Mass will be at 11:30 a.m. and daily confessions before Mass. The school facilities are available for the Totus Tuus Program only; therefore no latchkey childcare follows the program. Please make arrangements to pick up your child(ren) promptly at 3:00 p.m.
Each student needs to bring a sack lunch daily. St. Joseph will provide the drinks throughout the day. To assist with the snack time, each student is asked to bring one package of store-bought cookies or a box of snack crackers on the first day of the program.
On Friday, the last day of the program, the teachers have special activities planned for the students that always prove to be fun and exciting.
Pre-registration is encouraged, as class sizes are limited. As the date of TOTUS TUUS approaches, students from other area parishes will also be invited to attend as space is available. Watch for further updates in the Church Bulletin and our Facebook page. The cost of the day program is $10 per student or $20 for a family. The middle school and High school program is free of charge. Should this fee create a financial burden for your family, please let us know so that arrangements can be made. This fee is used to help cover the cost of the TOTUS TUUS team as well as the materials used during the week. To pre-register your child, complete the attached registration and waiver forms and return them with the registration fee to the church office. The office will also have a supply of extra registration forms, if needed.
If there is a child in your neighborhood or someone you know who is not attending a Catholic school or church, please prayerfully consider printing off an extra registration form for their family and invite their children to Totus Tuus. It could be a wonderful way to open the door to evangelization.
