Third Graders Enjoy "Pennies for Patients Pasta Party" from Olive Garden Pictures - Fun

8th Grade Trip

The 8th grade left for their class trip on Sunday at 6:30 AM from the St. Paul School parking lot. The destination was Gatlinburg, Tennessee and excitement was in the air on that early Sabbath Day morning.

That feeling was justified as the students enjoyed three days packed full of activities and new discoveries. They took a tour of the Ripley's Aquarium, zip-lined through the mountains, got their adrenaline rush on an Alpine coaster, took a ride on horseback, and got their kicks through the Wonderworks interactive museum.

They stayed at the luxurious Moose Hollow lodge that included an indoor pool, two hot tubs, an arcade, a pool table, and a kitchen big enough to cook meals for 20 middle-schoolers.

It was a wonderful three days in the Smokey Mountains. Memories were forged which will last a lifetime. Now the 8th graders have one last great milestone to cross this year before saying goodbye to St. Paul School: graduation.

“ be, or not to be...”

Celebration of William Shakespeare's 400th Anniversary

Kick Off City-wide Celebration of William Shakespeare's 400th Anniversary

  • Accompanied by representatives from Louisville’s arts and cultural institutions, Mayor Greg Fischer officially announced an eight-month-long, city-wide celebration of William Shakespeare called Will in the Ville. This collaborative initiative—spearheaded by the Frazier History Museum, University of Louisville, and the Louisville Free Public Library—involves more than 45 arts, cultural, and educational organizations throughout Louisville and Southern Indiana. As part of the international commemoration of the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death, it aims to make Louisville a “city of Shakespeare.”
  • Shakespeare events begin this month and continue throughout 2016.
  • “Shakespeare’s writing is timeless – beautiful and poetic – and the city is honored to host this important celebration of all things from the Bard of Avon,” Fischer said.
  • The First Folio, published in 1623, seven years after Shakespeare’s death, is the first collected edition of his plays, many of which were not published during his lifetime.
  • When the First Folio arrives in Louisville, its pages will be opened to the most quoted line from Shakespeare and one of the most quoted lines in the world, “To be, or not to be,” from Hamlet. Accompanying the rare book will be a multi-panel exhibition exploring the significance of Shakespeare, then and now, with additional digital content and interactive activities. "...this will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to come within inches of one of the most influential books in history,” said Penelope Peavler, President & CEO of the Frazier History Museum.
  • First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare premieres in Louisville at the Frazier History Museum on November 10 and will be free and open to the public. A schedule of programs, activities, and performances is available online at And you can follow the conversation on Twitter and Instagram using #WillintheVille.
