Parents of children ages 2 through 13--who are still not entirely certain about where their children will attend school this fall-- are invited to attend an open house from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, August 2 at St. Joseph School, 5641 South 73rd Avenue, Summit (a half block west of 57th and Harlem).

To them we say, ‘Our doors are open, and we welcome your interest. Please stop by and let's talk about how together, we can provide the very best for your son or daughter.'”
A number of moms and dads of current St. Joseph students will be on hand, as they make final preparations for the 2015-16 academic year.
