FRIENDSHIP

LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS I HAVE LOVED YOU

St. Josaphat Parish School cultivates an atmosphere of mutual respect and appreciation among our student body celebrating the God-given gifts each child brings to our learning community.  Together, all members of the SJPS family work to realize Christ's plan for our school and the special calling for every soul in our care.  Above all, we strive to grow in friendship with the Lord and one another through fun, fellowship and our Catholic faith.

Student Buddies

Once a week, Buddy Classes meet to read, work, create, pray, and play together. Older classes are paired with younger classes which provide leadership opportunities as well as build upon friendships across grade and age levels.

Peer Tutors

Learning new and difficult material can be easier when working with a friend. The SJPS Peer Tutoring Program establishes productive working relationships with students in their current class in order to provide support, offer a listening ear, and give suggestions to ensure student success.

Spirit Groups

Several times throughout the school year, SJPS Spirit Groups gather for prayer and a collaborative project. These popular groups consist of two students from each grade and are led by our 8th-grade students. Finished projects are proudly displayed in the school building during Advent, Lent, Easter and other significant times of the Liturgical Calendar year.  

New Student Mentors

Each time a new family joins the SJPS community, we introduce the student(s) to a member of their class who will take the primary role of New Student Mentor. This mentor provides useful information about life at SPJS and is available for questions during the transition.
