The St. Joseph Catholic School competes in the West Metro division of the Minnesota Junior High Math League. Participation in the math league gives students an opportunity to expand their math skills individually and cooperatively in groups. It is also a chance for students to compete against the best “Mathletes” in the western suburbs. The West Metro division consists of St. Joseph School and five area schools (Watertown-Mayer, Our Lady of the Lake, St. Therese, Waconia Middle School, and Notre Dame Academy). There are five meets from October to January which are approximately 3 school weeks apart. Students compete for team and individual honors. The team consists of students in grades 6-8 and practices approximately once per week from September to January. The team is coached by Kristi Klawitter. 

The registration fee for new students who would like to purchase a Math League t-shirt is $50. Returning students who already have a t-shirt or students who wish not to purchase a t-shirt is $35. 

For more information about Math League, contact Kristi Klawitter at   

Robotics is open to all grades 4-8 students. Students will have the opportunity to compete and advance to the Regional First Lego League Tournament, typically held in November or December. The State Tournament is held in January each year.

What is the FIRST LEGO League?

FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is an exciting alliance between FIRST and the LEGO® Group. It’s a robotics program for 9 to 16-year-olds (9 to 14 in  US/CAN/MEX), which is designed to get children excited about science and technology and teach them valuable employment and life skills.

Teams of up to 10 kids program an autonomous robot (using a LEGO MINDSTORMS® robot set) to score points on a thematic playing surface, create an innovative solution to a problem as part of their Project, all while guided by the FLL Core Values. These three elements – the Robot Game, Project, and FLL Core Values – make up what we call our yearly Challenge.
