STREAM (Science/Technology/Religion/Engineering/Fine Art/Mathmatics

Here are some pictures of our PreK Fours and STREAM! On their theme of wind, our Fours used Lablearner lesson on Observation and Comparison: Anemometer to explore weather. For Technology they looked up the weather in different areas of the world. In Religion we thanked God for creating air. For Engineering they build structure outside to see how they would hold up on a windy day. In Art we made kites. For Math we sorted colors by blowing into straws!

Spring Clothing Drive is a fundraiser that does not cost anything and will benefit the school and your entire family. The clothing drive will take place Saturday, May 14th and Sunday, May 15th. We are collecting used clothing, linens, shoes, belts, handbags, stuffed animals and hard toys. All items must be in tightly tied plastic bags. There will be two convenient drop off locations: StJP school gym and Immaculate Conception Church. Items will be accepted after all Masses on Saturday and Sunday. If you have questions, please contact Mary Ellen Ginty at

Uniform Swap will take place on Monday, April 11th at 5 PM at the Chapel House. Open Meeting will be held by the Home & School board on Wednesday, April 13th in the St.Joseph the Worker Room. We are looking for new members that would like to share great ideas for our school. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities. Check out our page on the school website.
