The Association, with the help of donations and through fundraising events, continues to carry out its mission of giving back to SJHS in the following ways:
SCHOOL TOOLS FOR First FORMERS
In the Summer of 2014, the St. Joseph High School Alumni Association, U.S. Chapter embarked on a project to send a shipment of school supplies to St. Joseph High School. The goal was to provide basic, but essential school supplies to all incoming first year students to supplement their foundational building blocks, and to also support the needs of students in their 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th years of high school. That first shipment of supplies included writing instruments, notebooks, geometry sets, solar powered calculators and Spanish to English dictionaries. The project was successful and was named
“School Tools For First Formers”
Since then, with the kind contributions to and support of our fundraising events, the Association has been able to continue this project annually and most recently, include backpacks and additional critical materials such as copy paper, portable projectors, chalk and other supplies for use by teachers.
SJHSAA is proud to recognize and reward students for their scholastic achievements as they journey through St. Joseph High School. One such form of recognition is the presentation of a gold graduation ring. This award is typically given to the top 10 graduating students upon successful completion of the annual Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) Examinations.
