Iowa Testing Begins Next Week

All next week, our students in grades 3-8 will be taking the Iowa Tests throughout the day. It is very important that your students arrive on time each day and that they are here each day unless they are ill. You can set your child up for success by encouraging him/her to:


1. Get a good night's sleep.

2. Eat a healthy breakfast.

3. Read questions carefully.

4. Take your time.

5. Always, always, always...DO YOUR BEST!



April 7 - School Led Mass @ 11:00

I am looking for student volunteers to read, serve, and bring up gifts at the 11:00 Student Led mass on April 7th. If your child is willing and able to help, please click on the link below.


All students who volunteer will receive 2dress down passes! All students who attend wearing their uniform will receive a dress down pass.

K-2 Speech Screenings - April 27

On April 27, the FIRE Foundation has graciously volunteered to offer our K-2 Students FREE speech screenings. A letter will come home soon telling you more information about these screenings and allowing you the opportunity to opt out if preferred.

St. Patrick School Summer Camp Opportunities

This summer, we will be offering 2 Summer Camp opportunities for students in incoming grades 2-8. These camps will be academically based and will provide students with learning and fun filled activities throughout the day. The first week, students will rotate through "fun" stations ranging in arts/crafts, creative writing, and robotics. The second week is a readiness camp that will help boost your child and prepare him/her for the next grade.


You can send in registration forms directed to Ms. Monaghan. Please register your child for these camps by May 3rd to allow us to plan properly! See below for the registration forms.

Birthdays This Week!

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.
