In 1 1/2 hours on Wednesday, March 16th, the students of St. Joseph School were able to prepare over 1500 meal packets, with each meal packet 
feeding 6 people.  In total, St. Joe's students prepared over 9000 servings!  
The students raised the funds (over $2000!) for this event 
during Catholic Schools Week.





Each year, the DeWitt Right to Life Christians sponsor a Pro-Life Poster Contest.  Students in grades 4-8 were asked to create a poster promoting respect for the unborn.  This year's contest had 104 entries, with two winners from each grade.  Each winner received $10 from the committee.  The winning posters are displayed outside the school office.  Congratulations to the following winners!
4th grade:  Regina Klostermann & Isabelle Pierce*
5th grade:  Lucas Bratthauer & Kaylee Ernst
6th grade:  Lily Jefford & Adam Townsley
7th grade:  Talbot Kinney & Maggie McDonough
8th grade:  Crystal Burke & Kara Duffy
