Hello St. Joe Angel Dads,
Welcome to the St. Joseph’s Academy Fathers’ Club for 2021-22! Whether you are a returning dad, or the father of an incoming freshman, you are a special member of the SJA Fathers’ Club.
The Fathers’ Club is a great way to expand your participation in the SJA community in a meaningful and fun way. It is a great opportunity to meet more of the amazing dads and people of St. Joseph’s Academy, and help support the Parent Scholarship and Tuition Assistance Fund. The Parent Scholarship Fund is a special part of the Fathers’ Club work, as it ensures no SJA student would have to leave the school due to loss of a primary tuition paying parent. The scholarship is funded primarily through our annual St. Joe Classic Golf and Pickleball Outing. This year’s event will be held on Monday, October 18th at Bogey Hills Country Club and neighboring Wapelhorst Park.
Here are some additional Fathers’ Club 2021-22 events to mark down on your calendar:
- Thursday, August 19th - Fathers’ Club Social @ SJA
- Friday, August 27th – St. Joe Day, planned dedication of the Athletic Field Flag Pole (Gift of Fathers’ Club 2020)
- Saturday, October 2nd – St. Joe vs. Villa Spirit Field Hockey Game @ SJA (BBQ)
- Thursday, October 28th – Father/Daughter Mass @ SJA
- Friday, January 14th – Father/Daughter Dance @ the St. Charles Convention Center
In addition to these events, we will have service and volunteer opportunities throughout the year and your help is always greatly appreciated.
I have the honor of serving as this year’s Fathers’ Club president with these great team members:
Vice President – Greg Jansen (Allison ’22 and Kayla ’24)
Treasurer – Mike Patterson (Jane ’23)
Secretary – Kevin Knopf (Lauren ’24)
Hospitality Chair – Kelly McDaniel (Brighton ’23)

We looked forward to a outstanding year, and on behalf of the Fathers' Club thanks for all you do for our SJA community!
