Help market our school!

A recent National Catholic Educational Association parent newsletter focuses on how parents can help market Catholic schools.

Recycle your paper!

Drop off papers to be recycled in either of our Paper Gator bins.  One is located in the parking lot adjacent to Father Flohe Field; the other is located next to the gymnasium.  The school receives money for the papers, so don’t throw them away!

ATTENTION

 

St. Patrick School is not in session until further notice due to the Governors ordered shut down.

While the school building is closed during the Governor’s ordered shutdown, we will continue with the education of our students via Google Classroom online (grades 6-12) and weekly assignment packets (grades K-8).

There will not be a pick up or drop off of educational materials on Monday, March 30.
Elementary students have received work to extend through April 3rd.  Secondary students will continue to receive lessons via Google Classroom. We hope students will be able to turn in all completed work when school resumes on Tuesday, April 14. Please note that teachers will not be sending any coursework or lessons during Spring Break.
