St. Joseph School Offers More Clubs, Sports

Over the past two years, St. Joseph School (SJS) in North Grosvenordale has increased its offerings to students in interscholastic athletics and extracurricular activities.

The expansion of these activities stemmed from a summer meeting in late July 2018 when a group of parents brainstormed ways to improve the student experience at SJS. The SJS athletic program, led by athletic director and parent volunteer Lindsay Lehmann, consists of multiple sports in which student-athletes participate.

The interscholastic offerings are in soccer (fall season) and basketball (winter season). Both sports are co-ed, and for all ages. SJS offers a running club in the fall and a golf club in the spring, which is taught by professionals at the Woodstock Golf Club.

“At SJS, our athletic programs are crucial to the development of the whole student,” Lehmann said. “Together, our male and female athletes work cooperatively as they train toward the same goal; to represent their school the best they can. Win or lose, our SJS Falcons have the biggest hearts and play every game until the final buzzer or whistle.”

SJS has increased its number of after school clubs to seven, five more than only two years ago, with an eighth club, a new Chinese Club, to begin in early February. “There are a number of parents as well as faculty/staff members who volunteer their time after school to enhance the student experience at SJS,” Sizemore said. “Whether it's having 25 youngsters playing with Legos or knitting scarves for those in need, there is a club for everybody."

To find out more information on what SJS can offer, contact the school for more information at (860) 923-2090.
