SJW Choir Expectations    

Mission Statement:

At St. Joseph the Worker School, we believe that EVERY child has talent.  It is our commitment to develop every child’s singing voice. We strive to enrich and educate the children through different musical styles of choral music. We instill the values of sharing God’s gift of music within the Catholic liturgy inside and outside of our parish community. We hope to develop these talents through full participation in practices and experiences in order to deepen a music appreciation that can be shared as a school, in each child’s life, and for their future.
