St. Joseph's Collegiate Inst.

On his way to Alaska, Religion Teacher Deacon Hynes made a stop at Powell's in Portland, OR - the world's largest bookstore! He sends this message across the miles to all of our students: "Hope everyone is working on their summer reading list!" #summer #roadtrip #deacs

Vocal Music Teacher Michael Hooker ’06 and Science Teacher Anthony Shilen recently spent a few days engaged in prayer, study, and reflection at the Brother John Johnston Institute of Contemporary Lasallian Practice. The two-year program is designed to deepen their ability to articulate and share our Lasallian mission #brotherhood #summerlearning #lasallian

This month, Mr. Russ Owens is retiring after 43 years of teaching and inspiring young musicians. He has absolutely loved his career and describes the students as respectful as they were years ago. Traveling with the different ensembles to places such as San Francisco, New Orleans, and the Bahamas are some of his favorite memories.
His plans for the future? Definitely spending more time with his family and finding every opportunity to play that trumpet. Please join us in wishing Russ Owens a harmonious retirement. Thank you for the many, many years of incredible music.

Social Studies Teacher Mr. Michael Gromek will be retiring at the end of the school year after 33 years of service. He credits his own AP American teacher in high school for creating the strong interest in a teaching career. At that time, he could not have predicted the deep friendships he would develop among the faculty or the exciting changes in classroom learning as technology began to influence pedagogy. Outside of the classroom, Mr. Gromek coached within the hockey, baseball, and bowling programs.
Please join us in congratulating Michael Gromek, thanking him for his unwavering care of our students, and wishing him well #retirement

Mr. Martin Fedchak was hired in 1984 and has spent the last 32 years teaching Economics, Accounting, and Business courses - and giving his friend, Mr. Ted Lina, a hard time every chance he could get.
In 1986, Mr. Fedchak jumped at the opportunity to assist with the St. Joe’s Food Basket campaign, eventually taking the faculty leadership role. Today, this initiative continues to involve and inspire our entire school community while providing meals for needy families in WNY.
Outside of the classroom, he also spent years coaching hockey and serving as an advisor to the senior class.
Martin Fedchak will be retiring at the close of the school year, and looks forward to spending more time with his grandchildren. Congratulations and thank you for your years of service to the young men of St. Joe’s.

In 1982, Mrs. Catherine Ward joined the St. Joe’s faculty – tasked with starting a more formal arts program out of a classroom in the basement, where she spent the first five years of her career. Today, 35 years later, she teaches in a large open space conducive to creation and fitted with a computer graphics lab. After building an incredible legacy, Mrs. Ward will be retiring at the end of the school year.
We are so thankful to Catherine Ward for undoubtedly accomplishing the challenge presented to her back in 1982. Please join us in wishing her the best #arts #retirement #congrats #lasallian

50 members of the Class of 1967 walked across the graduation stage tonight as part of our commencement ceremony. Some traveled far distances to be with us, and we are grateful for their presence in our community - serving as a reminder to our graduates about the strength of the St. Joe's brotherhood #classof2017 #sjci

In September of 2013, we gathered this group of excited and nervous boys for a photo to capture their first day of freshmen year at St. Joe’s. Tonight, we will all gather to witness these young gentlemen of integrity walk across the stage at graduation. Bring on the cheers and the tears #classof2017 #commencement

The sun was shining on the seniors during the morning class prayer on their last regular school day. In the words of Campus Minister Chris Panepinto '02: "We stood together for the first time four years ago. Look around today and remember that you are always connected to each other, to the St. Joe's community, and to our Loving God." #classof2017 #brotherhood

A Message from President Robert T. Scott, AFSC:
Yesterday, we asked you to honor the 946 teachers, staff, and students who walk into St. Joe's every day. We shared stories across social media platforms -- celebrating our rich tradition, our bright future, and OUR St. Joe's.
I'm proud to announce that 968 donors joined the celebration, and I'm incredibly thankful for the continued strength of this community. St. John Baptist de La Salle . . . Pray for Us! Live Jesus in our hearts . . . Forever!

Sound the trumpets! (It's after midnight, so there really aren't any students here.) But we did it! 946 donors in just one day! We are so grateful for all of our generous donors. It's not too late to join the celebration though! We may be turning off the lights, but you can visit all night long #ourstjoes
