We also recognize that student success is dependent upon having accessibility to teachers. All of our Kindergarten classes are staffed with a teacher and a full-time teacher’s aide. Our Kindergarten student ratio is 12:1. Likewise, all of our primary grades are staffed with a teacher and a full-time classroom educational aide.
We understand that good communication between parents and teachers is essential for academic success. We strive to ensure that our parents and teachers are in constant contact. Sts. Joseph and John School helps to enhance communication between parents and teachers through the Edline program. Edline offers parents the ability to examine their child’s daily progress, verify homework assignments, and e-mail their child’s teacher with any questions or concerns. Edline also alerts parents through e-mail when new grades have been posted to the site. With Edline, parents have the opportunity to monitor their children’s academic progress.
