NEW Parish Library 

Our newly renovated Parish Library is located in the rear of the school cafeteria. You may borrow books, DVDs or CDs. Just sign out what you are borrowing and return it in a timely fashion when you are finished so that others may have access to our treasures. If you cannot make it to the cafeteria, there will be a list of our books on the parish website and in the back of the church. We hope that you make good use of the library to grow in your knowledge and love of our faith. Also, all donations of books, etc., are always gratefully accepted!

''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.
