Before & After School Program
St. Joseph Catholic School's Before and After School Program called St. Joseph Care Club (SJCC) was designed to meet the needs of its students (Full Day, Pre-K – 5th grade) and their working parents. The purpose of the St. Joseph Care Club program is to provide a child centered, safe, and happy environment. Each day we will offer homework time and recreation time. In addition, a variety of activities which include but are not limited to: arts and crafts, games, projects, and music.
The registration form must be filled out completely prior to your child’s first day attending aftercare and the information recorded on it should be kept current.
