''Together We Can'' Provide Quality Catholic Education for our Children 

Inline image 1

"Together We Can Do Great Things"

Thank you to ALL who helped to make our celebration of Catholic Schools Week so wonderful!

It was a true testament to the family spirit that exists among our students, staff, and families.

In the coming weeks, letters that students wrote expressing their gratitude for the gifts and blessings 

of our school will be published on the website and in the parish bulletin.

 

St. Patrick Catholic School truly is "a collaborative ministry of the parish and school community".

"Together we can"...provide our children with quality Catholic education...that IS a great thing!

No family, truly desiring a Catholic education for their child(ren) is turned away from our school.

This is possible because of the tremendous prayerful and financial support received from our Parish Family.

 

Let us pray in gratitude for this commitment to the future of our children!

Catholic Education - A Home/School Partnership 

The education of a student is a partnership between the family and the school. Families enrolling their children in St. Patrick Catholic School are expected to:
  • Want their children to receive an education with a strong religious emphasis.
  • Be willing to make sure their children are on time and ready for school each day.
  • Attend all school related meetings, events, and report card conferences.
  • See that their children are present for special events such as the Christmas Concert, Spring Concert, and other community events.
  • Speak, act, and dress MODESTLY
  • Attend Mass on Holy Days of Obligation.
  • Receive the Sacraments on a regular basis.
  • Meet with teachers and administration when requested.
  • Be respectful and cooperative with school staff.
  • Support and follow school policies.
  • Remain current in tuition and all other school related fees.
  • Participate in fundraising activities.
  • Meet parent service requirements.
  • Understand that a parent / guardian’s presence and participation in a child’s school life is critical to his / her success and growth.
The parent has the right to withdraw a child if desired and the school administration reserves the right to require the withdrawal of a student if the administration determines that the partnership is irretrievably broken.

Responsible self-discipline in students is another key to quality education. All members of the school community are expected to practice Christian behavioral techniques and attitudes to model this for our children.

How best to communicate when there is a problem, concern, complaint?

· Calmly gather facts from those who have firsthand information. Suggested questions: What did you see? What did you hear? Who did you see/hear? If the name is not known: What did the person look like? When did this happen? Take notes if it is helpful to keep the facts factual.

·Avoid jumping to conclusions.

·Avoid speaking about the matter in the presence of your child/ren or other children.

·Avoid E-mailing and texting

·Avoid chatting about a concern in public places.

·Avoid leaving voice mails that are loud and angry. Better to indicate a need for conversation, including your name and phone number/s. Indicate the urgency of the matter.

·Avoid approaching the principal, teacher or staff member while they are engaged in some other activity or conversation.

·Indicate calmly the need you have to speak privately about the matter or concern and recognize that that particular time may not allow the full attention of the person to whom you are addressing the matter and thus there may be a delay before being able to discuss it.

·Realize that there are always at least two sides to every story.

·Agree to disagree agreeably.

Birthday Books 

St. Patrick Catholic School is again this year offering Birthday Books for students wishing to celebrate their birthday in school. In past years, the money donated for Birthday Books has purchased several hundred dollars’ worth of books for our school library.

If you are looking for a special way to recognize your child’s birthday, I hope you will consider a Birthday Book. Just send in $10 to school in an envelope marked “Birthday Book” on your child’s birthday or shortly before.

Ms. Keffer has a selection of new books set aside in the library, where your child selects a book. A bookplate with your child’s name and birth date is placed in the front of the book. The classroom teacher may read the book to the class (in the lower grades), and the student has two weeks to keep the book before it becomes part of the library collection. This is a wonderful way to bring special recognition to your birthday child, as well as encouraging a love of reading.

Parking Lot Warning! 

Please be aware that the small parking lot in the alley---Cherry Ln.--- behind St. Patrick Catholic School and next to OUR parking lot at the corner of S. George St., and W. College Ave., is NOT part of our property. It is privately owned and posted as "Permit Parking Only" and that others will be towed. Unfortunately, some have been towed in the past and others impounded, at considerable expense to the owners. Be very careful where you park so as not to be in a tow away zone. At one time parking in our "new" lot (corner of George & College) was restricted to certain times but that is no longer the case. PLEASE observe the "Reserved" parking signs in the lot between the rectory and convent/Adoration Chapel so that those for whom spaces are reserved will have access to them. When coming to activities in Brenner Hall (sporting events, socials, school activities---including those during the daytime hours---etc.) use the parking lots along W. College Ave.

Providing a Catholic school education in difficult economic times is challenging.  There are families who have a great desire to have their child(ren) enrolled in St. Patrick Catholic School but cannot afford to do so alone.  Tuition for one child for the present school year is  $3,300.  ANY donation for this purpose, ANY amount, would be GREATLY appreciated.


Please direct inquiries to Donna Giberti, Director of Development at 717-916-2275 or dgiberti@stpatrickyork.net .

Adoration Chapel ALERT! 

St. Patrick Parish is blessed, being the site of the Deanery's Perpetual Adoration Chapel and our York Deanery is blessed by having a place of prayer and devotion available, 24/7, where the faithful may gather for prayer and adoration before the Blessed Sacrament.  But the Adoration Chapel is in desperate need of additional Adorers to assure that every hour of every day of every week is covered.  Those many people who come to the chapel, day or night, know first hand of the countless blessings that they receive through their times of prayer and adoration though, I believe, it is not about what they can "get" that draws them to the Real Presence of Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament but rather what they can "give" to Him.  Recruiting new Adorers is difficult.  For one who has never committed to an hour of prayer and reflection before the Blessed Sacrament there can easily be the fear or concern "what will I do for a whole hour?".  Those who faithfully come before the Blessed Sacrament can testify that in most instances, the hour goes very quickly and they cherish those quiet minutes of prayer, thought and reflection. 

      I often pray the Liturgy of the Hours and the Rosary; others read the Bible or some other spiritual writings; some just sit and ponder the presence of the Lord; some read what others have written in the Book of Intentions.  The options are many.  But the more immediate need, right now, is to recruit additional Adorers, particularly young adults, married and single. 

Recently I have taken a much more “assertive" (aggressive) stance when meeting with engaged couples for marriage preparation, indicating to them that we [the Church] NEED married couples who are strong in the living of their Catholic faith to assure that they will be empowered to pass that faith along to future generations.  Unfortunately, too many young adult couples today are, at best, lax in the practice of the faith.  When meeting with couples there seems to be a desire to "become" more active in living the Catholic faith but no real plan as to how to do that.  Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament can aid in that process of renewal of faith in action.  And so I say, I invite, I exhort, I beg:  You young adults out there---single, engaged, married---PLEASE give an hour a week for prayer in the Good Shepherd Adoration Chapel. Interested, call me, 848-2007. Fr. Houser
