Governor's Cup this Saturday at Frost Middle School

The middle school students below will be participating in Governor's Cup competition this Saturday (1-19-13) at Frost Middle School on Watson Lane. We want to wish the students and coaches Good Luck!

Kroger Cards Profit!!!

As of 12/22/12 we had $33,123.01 in recharges with those using Kroger Cards. This represents a profit to the school of $1422.52. This was done with only 17 families using Kroger Cards. Think what it could be if 132 families used the cards.


If you would like a St. Paul School Kroger Card all you need to do is send us $5. After you receive your card apply money to the card and use for groceries, gas, pharmacy products and anything you purchase at Kroger. If you use the card the school will receive a percentage of what you spend. In addition for every $300 recharge your child or children will receive a dress down day.

Please consider getting your St. Paul Kroger Card and using it often.

New Athletic Director

I would like to take this opportunity to announce that Matt Harrod has graciously accepted the position of Athletic Director for St. Paul. I want to thank him for taking on such an important and meaningful position and I know he will do a great job for the community. Matt will not be taking over until sometime in May so please direct all questions and concerns to myself until that time. Matt will be learning the ins and outs of behind the scene parts of the position over the next few months so please allow him with the opportunity to learn everything before we ask too many questions of him.

I would also like to take this opportunity to say it has been a blessing for me to be involved with the St. Paul sports program over the last eight years and thank the entire community for allowing me to serve with the Sports Committee for these past several years. It has truly been a wonderful experience and I hope the success and tradition will carry on for many years to come and as always, GO RAIDERS!!

Common Core Standards


Common Core State Standards at St. Paul School



This is the seventh article in a series of articles that present the importance of adopting Common Core State Standards in all schools. Last week’s article presented the 7h, 8th, 9th, and 10h of thirteen standards for effective Catholic elementary and secondary schools.

This week’s article week’s article includes the 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th standards:


OPERATIONAL VITALITY


An excellent Catholic school:


10. provides a feasible three to five year financial plan that includes both current and projected budgets and is the result of a collaborative process, emphasizing faithful stewardship.


11. operates in accord with published human resource/personnel policies developed in compliance with (arch)diocesan policies and/or religious congregation sponsorship policies, which affect all staff (clergy, religious women and men, laity and volunteers) and provide clarity for responsibilities, expectations and accountability.


12. develops and maintains a facilities, equipment, and technology management plan designed to continuously support the implementation of the educational mission of the school.


13. enacts a comprehensive plan, based on a compelling mission, for institutional advancement through communications, marketing, enrollment management, and development.
