STEM Activity Day and Open House

Students are encouraged to invite a friend or family member who might be interested in attending St. Patrick School to our "STEM Activity Day and Open House". This event will be held on Sunday, January 27 from 12:00 - 1:30. Children will have the opportunity to experiment with Lego Design, Spheros Robots, FlipGrid videos, Makerspace, Art, and more! Parents will get to sit down, have coffee, and chat with Ms. Monaghan and Mrs. Ragan to learn more about St. Patrick School and ECC.

Every "visiting child" in attendance will receive a raffle ticket to be put in a "prospective student" drawing for some fun prizes.

Every student who brings a guest will receive one raffle ticket per guest to place in a separate "school children" drawing. This means, if your child brings 4 school age guests, he/she will receive 4 raffle tickets to place in the drawing.

If you are willing to hand out fliers for this event, contact the school office at and we will send a stack of fliers with your child!

Baby Wipes Challenge

We have been informed that the pantry is in desperate need of baby wipes, so we are competing in a classroom baby wipes challenge. The classroom that brings in the most baby wipes between now and Monday, January 28th will receive a special prize!

St. Patrick School

The mission of St. Patrick School is to develop young men and women with active and creative minds, a sense of understanding and compassion for others, and the courage to act on their beliefs. We stress the total development of each child: spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical. Encouragement is given to students to bring their lives into conformity with God's will and plan, so that He is glorified.
