ALL SAINTS DAY CELEBRATION - November 1

The grade four leadership team did a great job leading us in our All Saints Day Celebration as we prayed a litany to the saints. All Saints' Day is a solemn holy day of the Catholic Church celebrated annually on November 1. The day is dedicated to the saints of the Church, that is, all those who have attained heaven. Included in this is St. Patrick- patron saint of our school.


All Holy Men and Women...Pray for Us!

HALLOWEEN FUN!

Another great turnout for our annual costume parade! Thank you parents and guests for coming out to support our students-they felt pretty special! What a fun time for our students....and staff!

CANDY EXCHANGE!

St. Pat’s will be doing a candy exchange again this year. Students are encouraged to bring in as much or as little of their candy as they wish in exchange for a healthy surprise. The class that brings in the most total combined weight will win a surprise activity with Mr. Doll. We will have an assembly Thursday, November 7th where we will weigh the candy from each class to see which class brings back the most candy. We will talk about how we are donating the candy to the Open Door and how the students exchanging their candy is helping those less fortunate, as well as their own health!

PRE-K HALLOWEEN FUN!
