Our current 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Abby Rezac, is planning a move to Omaha this summer and will not continue teaching at St. Patrick School. We are so thankful that she has been a part of our school family for the past 8 years and wish her continued blessings in her personal and professional journey. Thank you Mrs. Rezac for all that you have done for our St. Patrick students and school families – you will be truly missed!

☘️Festival Assignments☘️

☘️Carnival Help Needed☘️

The St. Patrick’s Festival is NEXT WEEKEND and that means we NEED to fill the following slots for the Carnival Games as soon as possible, otherwise they will need to be shut down during the open time slots. Now, we don’t want to disappoint the 200+ kids, so please consider picking up a two hour slot. It goes quickly and is fun! We are also in need of some punch card sellers and half hour raffle people. Please see below and contact Jill Hraban at 402-314-0077 (text/call) or email her at jhraban@windstream.net to sign up. The sooner the better, as we need to get a list made. Also, if you are home with your child on Friday the 15th and are bored, we could use more help setting up the games. No need to reply, just show up to help starting at 10am. Thanks for your help!
