St. Joseph School Cockeysville Launches New Website
Thanks to IT Firm’s Generosity

Just in time for the new school year, the community of St. Joseph Cockeysville launches a state-of-the-art new website, donated by Baltimore Consulting – the Hunt Valley IT resources firm of St. Joseph parishioner and school parent Michael Crowley.

Cockeysville, MD, August 29, 2012 – St. Joseph School in Cockeysville launched a comprehensive new website (www.sjpmd.org) this week to kick off the new school year.  The parish and school website can be found at www.sjpmd.org, and utilizes a state-of-the-art content management system to make it easy to update and disseminate information to current and prospective parents.  The time and resources needed to design and implement the system were donated by parishioner and school parent Michael Crowley, of Baltimore Consulting in Hunt Valley.

“Parents have a real need for current and quick access to school information.  Weather notifications, athletic events, school gatherings, and interactions with school staff are all part of the academic experience, and the system being utilized should facilitate all of these.  The previous website was outdated,” explains Michael Crowley, St. Joseph School parent and co-founder of Baltimore Consulting, a Hunt Valley-based IT services firm.

“I knew that our firm could take this to a whole new level and create a system that allowed the school and parish to function more efficiently, as well as help in attracting and recruiting families to the school and parish communities. I talked it over with the team, and we agreed that donating a new website to St. Joseph’s was an incredibly worthwhile cause,” Mr. Crowley continues.

The new website includes a flexible and user-friendly content management system, an interactive calendar, search features, detailed and targeted content, and social media capabilities to enhance the school’s communications efforts.

“We are very thankful to Mr. Crowley and his colleagues at Baltimore Consulting for their top-notch professionalism and generous donation of their talents to breathe some much-needed new life into our website,” notes Mr. Terrance Golden, principal of St. Joseph School.  “With the new system, it will be much easier for our staff members to update news and events, so busy parents can get all the information they need in a timely and efficient manner.  Plus, it looks awesome, too,” Mr. Golden says.
