Catholic School Week

St. Joseph’s recently celebrated Catholic School Week.

Our event theme for Catholic Schools Week 2010 was Dividends for Life.

An essay contest was part of the celebration. Students were to reflect on what they’re learning at St. Joseph’s Indian School and how it provides them the dividends of faith, knowledge, discipline and morality.

At St. Joseph's Indian School, our privately-funded programs for Lakota (Sioux) children in need have evolved over 89 years of family partnership, experience and education. Because of generous friends who share tax-deductible donations, Native American youth receive a safe, stable home life; individual counseling and guidance; carefully planned curriculum based on Lakota culture and individual student needs and tools to help build confidence, boost self-esteem and improve cultural awareness. All of this helps children to live a bright, productive, possibility-filled future.
