Welcome Back!

School Theme - Called to Discipleship: Be Christ’s Light


My name is Mrs. Cindy Rucks, I am beginning my 15th year as a teacher here at St. Joseph Catholic School. I am extremely excited to begin my second year as the facilitator in our STEAM Lab. All of our students from kindergarten through eight grade are able to design and create in this innovative environment. This past summer, I was able to attend the Creative Learning Systems conference in Denver, Colorado. At the conference, I was able to gain more insight into how to successfully facilitate our students in the STEAM lab. I received my Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education with a middle school endorsement from Northeastern Illinois University.


Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
