St. Joseph's Catholic School offers half-day Kindergarten. Our morning session begins at 8:15 and dismisses at 11:00; our afternoon session begins at 12:15 and dismisses at 3:00. Coordinated dress is required for Kindergarten through sixth grade. Tuition and coordinated clothing assistance is available for those who seek it. All are welcome at St. Joseph's regardless of their religious denomination.
Our kindergarten program expands a child's ability to learn about the world, organize information, and problem solve. In turn, this increases the child's feelings of self-worth, confidence, ability to work with others, and interest in challenging tasks. Our kindergarten experience provides the foundational skills for learning and thinking that enable children to become enthusiastic lifelong learners.
Religious formation is a fundamental part of each student's education. Kindergarten students attend Children's Mass on the last Friday of the month at 9:00 A.M. On the days kindergarten attends Mass, both AM and PM classes will meet from 8:15 – 11:00 A.M. There will be no afternoon session the days kindergarten attends Mass.
Our school traditions and activities are enjoyed by both students and the community. Some of these include:
- Prayer Partners
- Class Field Trips
- Fall Festival
- Student Assemblies
- Reading Month
- Catholic Schools Week
- Monthly Children's Mass
- Christmas Program
- PTO Family Fun Nights
- Missoula Children's Theater Productions
- Mardi Gras
