St. Patrick Catholic School
Principal's Weekly Newsletter
OCTOBER 21, 2021
Conferences are going very well. Hopefully your children leave knowing where their strengths are and what they can work on during the next couple of months before progress reports go out. We are always so happy to have the opportunity to work together with parents and provide a well-rounded education.
This week I received data comparing St. Patrick Catholic School's test scores with the Archdiocesan and State ISASP averages. I am proud to report that St Patrick Catholic School exceeded expectations and our scores were well above both the Archdiocesan and State averages at all grade levels. We work hard to provide the absolute best education to our students and this provides the evidence that we are succeeding!
P.S.: Just a reminder that we are still collecting Box Tops and HyVee receipts. Scan your store receipts with the app to credit our school or bring in any of the old-style physical Box Tops by Thursday, Oct.28. Hy-Vee receipts can be dropped off through the end of April.
October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary and honoring Mary. K-8 grade students gathered in the gym to pray the Living Rosary.
As a part of Leader In Me, students in every homeroom write a class mission statement. Mrs. Schmitt's students decided to model their statement after the Constitution.
Two 7th graders and Mrs. Sink volunteered Tuesday evening at the “Peoples Community Garden” located in Waterloo. The three harvested and cleaned vegetables. Produce grown in the garden is given to Peoples Clinic patients. "It was fun, and I feel good about helping feed people," one student said of the experience.
