This week, we were completely spoiled by some of our amazing parents. These parents provided lunch, drinks, snacks, games, and more for us that really helped the transition from summer to school a little easier! We are incredibly grateful for ALL of our St. Patrick volunteers, and especially for those who took such good care of us this week.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to Mrs. Trish Taylor, the Prohaska family, the Bax/Palma families, and the Hinkebein family! You made us feel very special this week, and we are incredibly grateful to you!

The St. Patrick School Prayer

Have you been practicing our new St. Patrick School prayer??? We'll be saying it each morning to start off our day!

Oh faithful and loving St. Patrick,

We pray that

the wisdom of God guide us

the word of God speak for us

the hand of God protect us

Oh faithful and loving St. Patrick,

We pray that,

Christ be with us

Christ be with those who think of us.

Christ be with those who see us.

Christ be with those who hear us.

Oh faithful and loving St. Patrick,

Pray for us.

Spreading Positivity!

As I met with teachers this week, preparing for the year ahead, I was overwhelmed with a feeling of pure JOY! These teachers are AMAZING! They are ready to work hard, they are passionate about their teaching, and they are excited to meet our kids. I can't help but smile knowing how LUCKY our kids are and how much they are going to LOVE this year!!

When preparing your child for the year ahead, I ask that you be POSITIVE! Speak encouraging words, tell him how much he is going to love this year. Our words become the thoughts in the heads of our children. Our words have POWER!

This year is going to be GREAT! You know how I know that, and can speak it with such confidence? Because I BELIEVE it, and I know that each day I will wake up with the attitude of making each day a GREAT day. I've worked hard to hire teachers who know their stuff, who will love our kids, who will work hard to give our kids the best academic experience they could ever imagine. I believe in my teachers, I believe in my students, and I believe this year will be one kids will remember.

I'm going to work hard to spread positivity and joy through the halls of St. Patrick School. Will you join me???
