Located in Portland, Michigan, St. Patrick Catholic School has been educating the minds and spirits of its students for over 100 years. Our school mission statement contains just six words, six powerful words that are a guide for life: We Pray! We Learn! We Achieve!
Advent is busy time of year for our students.
December 1 is the beginning of Advent in the Catholic Church. Advent is always a busy time of the year for St. Patrick students as they prepare for the birth of Christ on Christmas day. I mentioned during the months of October and November that there would be no rest for the weary during the month of December.
Each Monday, students will gather in the school gymnasium for an Advent Wreath candle lighting ceremony. Also, in preparation for Christmas, students in even numbered grades will receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Some of the other important activities scheduled during the month of December include the following:. ..... >>>>>

(12/4) Need a Special Christmas Gift?
From the Athletic Association: If you are looking for a gift for someone who needs nothing, consider buying them a Sports Raffle Ticket! For $85, the person is put into weekly drawings: On the first Sunday of the month, the prize is $500; the other Sundays pay out $100 each. Only 200 tickets have been sold this year, which means better odds for winning!
If you are interested for yourself or that hard to buy for person, contact Carol Gunderman or Sue Bosworth.

(12/2) ST. PATRICK SCHOOL LIBRARY CHRISTMAS PROJECT
From the School Librarian: As part of the ongoing effort update and grow the book collection, the St. Patrick School Library Christmas Project is back. However, the format will be a bit different because there is no longer a book store in Portland. In the past, many families donated books in memory of a loved one or to honor someone. Please consider donating to the St. Patrick School Library as part of your charitable giving. Books will be available to purchase in the St. Patrick School Library beginning December 2 on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays through December 18 during library hours which are as follows:
Since classes are scheduled it would be best to call ahead. Of course, if none of these times are convenient I would be happy to arrange other times. Please contact Kathy Cook if you have any questions. 647-7551 ext. 212 or email@example.com. BOOK DONATION FORM
