(6/8)  Catholic Schools Referral Form

Do you know a family with school age children who might be interested in Catholic education? Fill out this form and it will be sent directly to the Office of Catholic Schools at the Diocese of Grand Rapids. They will contact the family.  Your name will not be used.  Personal contact has been shown to be the single most important factor in a family's school decisions. According to Superintendent Dave Faber, Diocese of Grand Rapids data shows that 40% of the families who are contacted will make an appointment to visit the school.

(6/6) Happy birthday to all students, teachers and staff members who will celebrate their birthdays over summer break.

(6/2)  Class of 2018 gift to the school

Thank you to the Class of 2018 for a handmade gift that they donated to St. Patrick School.  
A large replica of the school logo was painted by seniors, Katie Coyne and Kylee Schrauben. The rest of the class contributed their fingerprints which are surrounding the shamrock in the center of the cross. This beautiful painting will be hung in the school.
