Outreach in Fremont
One of the hallmarks of St. Joseph School in Fremont is the involvement of the students in community outreach. Mission Helpers is a program wherein each class creates and plans projects for making the world a better place. The third- graders with the direction of their teacher Sister Denise Lazaro, OP, collected baby board books to share with disadvantaged children in San Francisco. The third-graders sent messages to the whole school community, reminding them the joy that reading gives and the necessity to be read to at an early age. Their enthusiasm generated six cartons of books that were delivered just before Christmas, to the Holy Family Day Home in San Francisco. This agency has been welcoming struggling families and meeting their basic needs since 1900.
