PROGRAMS

EDUCATING THE WHOLE CHILD

St. Josaphat Parish School programs are essential pieces of our instructional day.  Although not directly linked to academics, they ensure all students have access to an array of healthy experiences that promote spiritual, social, emotional and physical well-being.

After School Care

Commitment to our learning community extends beyond the school day with a variety of student-centered after school programs that support families and excite children!

Y-Care After School Program

Led by qualified, caring staff, the YMCA of Metro Milwaukee’s licensed After School Education program is designed to be fun and educational, and align with the school day, supporting growth in literacy, math, and science. Your child will receive help with their homework, participate in games and activities and grow their creativity through a variety of projects. A healthy snack is also provided.  Read more ...

Wisconsin Shares has temporarily increased subsidy rates which means more support for families interested in our Y-Care after school program. Read more details below.

The Milwaukee Christian Center After School Program located directly across the street at Koscuiszko Community Center serves SJPS students between the ages of 6-18. 

Activities include homework help, daily access to a large gym and gameroom, and much more.

After School Programs

COOKING CLUB

Students enjoy the company of others in the school kitchen as they create special treats to share with club members and those in need.

ART CLUB

Calling all Picassos! Students take art class to the next level with more time, materials and opportunities to develop their creative talents.  

CHESS CLUB

Exercise for the brain!  We keep students thinking as they learn the rules of engagement for this highly challenging and competitive game of strategy.  

ATHLETICS

We offer sports opportunities for boys and girls beginning in first grade.

SJPS offers soccer, basketball and volleyball league play within the Milwaukee Archdiocese, Milwaukee Park and Red and area tournaments. League participation is dependent upon interest and requires a student/family commitment to after school/weekend practices and transportation to/from games.

 

Parents are essential to our program.  They serve as volunteer coaches, managers, and overall team supporters.

This is an all-in family experience!

SAFETY PATROL

This opportunity is reserved for our oldest and most responsible students.  They learn and practice school safety and work to keep all SJPS walkers free from harm at dismissal time. 

 

HOPE HELPERS

These helpers serve the entire school and work to maintain a positive learning environment for everyone!  Some annual activities include outside school clean-up, new family hospitality, anti-bullying assemblies, positive school fundraising efforts, and a host of seasonal events that serve our area community. 

 School Day Programs

THE GUILD

Reserved for boys in grades 4-8, students who seek to perfect the craft of serving at the Sacred Liturgy. This group meets twice monthly for lunch and learn practice sessions and fellowship-building activities.  Read More....

SACRISTANS

Exclusively for our older female students, these volunteers help prepare the sacristy and its contents.

MASS CANTORS

Students in grades 5-8 audition with our music teacher, Mr. Gwozdz to secure a spot as an all-school Mass cantor.  This provides an incredible opportunity for strong singers to use their talents for worship and prayer.

SPIRIT GROUPS

 

Spirit Groups involve the entire school in multi-grade, faith-based activities that focus on a particular theme.  Under the supervision of classroom teachers and led by 8th-grade students, groups meet monthly to explore Catholic topics and create a craft, game, or other experience to deepen understanding and transform souls.

COMM CLUB

This group is the cream of the crop. Our most responsible 8th-grade students help with morning announcements, publicizing school events, leading monthly all-school activities, and assisting with all things communication.

Meal Program

DAILY SERVICE

We offer free and reduced meals to families who qualify.  Breakfast is served from 7:15 am until 7:45 am in our gym and classroom lunch periods are scheduled between 10:45 am and 12:30 pm.   Meals are healthy and delicious!

Our Commitment to Student Health and Nutrition

St. Josaphat Parish School is committed to serving healthy meals to our students. The School meal program aims to improve the diet and health of school children, model healthy eating patterns, and support healthy choices while accomodating cultural food preferences and special dietary needs.
