Congratulations to the cast and crew of Beauty & The Beast for two awesome performances last week.
Thank you to Dr. Hopkins and all his teacher and parent helpers, without whose help this show would not have been possible.
St. Patrick's School was represented at the Diocesan STEM Fair by sixth grader, Jake Ward and fifth grader, Markus Abdulhaqq this Saturday, April 8, 2017 at Holy Trinity High School. Both students did a wonderful job sharing their projects and knowledge of STEM.
It is necessary for all returning St. Patrick School families to complete re-registration forms for the 2017-2018 school year. Re-Registration forms and fee are due back by February 7, 2017, to guarantee a seat for your child.
There will be an additional fee to families that register AFTER March 1, 2017.
BUS TRANSPORTATION FORMS
Bus Transportation Forms must be completed and returned to YOUR HOME SCHOOL DISTRICT no later than April 1, 2017. These forms need to be completed each year for you child to receive bus service to and from St. Patrick School.
Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week. On Palm Sunday, we receive palm branches to mark Jesus’ entry in to Jerusalem. We began our Lenten journey with burnt Palms given on Ash Wednesday.
Throughout Lent, our School received confession, and prayed the Stations Of The Cross, and held Retreats.
On Holy Thursday, the Church re-enacts the Washing of Feet, symbolic of how to serve one another. At St. Patrick School, we filled over 200 Easter Baskets to provide for the children less fortunate.
Good Friday we remember Jesus’ death on the cross. We venerate the Holy Cross.
Easter Sunday, we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus; which marks the triumph of good over evil. We can now say “Alleluia” in Mass. May the Risen Christ bless you and those you love as you reflect on God’s gifts during this Holy Season.
Wishing you Many Blessings!

In the tradition of the Sisters of Mercy, St. Patrick helps each child to reach his or her potential, academically and spiritually. Inspired by the Gospel’s message of respect, courtesy, understanding, compassion and moral character, a St. Patrick Education guides each child’s journey into life as an educated, responsible and well-rounded individual.
