St. Patrick Catholic School
Principal's Weekly Newsletter
I have enjoyed visiting our students at Clover Patch and seeing them eager to learn and play. They are receiving high quality instruction in such a loving, faith-filled environment.
Our kindergartners have had a wonderful first week. I know they will enjoy coming together with the older students next week at our first Monday Morning Prayer.

Our students here at St. Patrick have many great experiences available to them. One of the best things about a Catholic education is the opportunity our K-Gr 8 students have to attend Mass as a school. Each of our homeroom teachers and their students will be in charge of planning Masses throughout the school year. The ability to plan and attend Mass helps our students develop an appreciation and deeper understanding of what it means to be a Catholic.
Our first School Mass will be Wednesday, September 7, at 8:30 AM. School Masses are an excellent way for school and church communities to celebrate our Catholic faith together. As always, parents, grandparents, parishioners, and community members are welcome to attend our school Masses. All of our School Masses will be livestreamed on our Facebook page.
Our second Mass of the year will be our Grandparents and Special Friends Mass on Friday, September 23, at 8:30 AM. We are hopeful that many of our students will have their grandparents or special friends in attendance. Please complete the Google Form below to give us their addresses for the invitations.
We continue to go green and send home fewer paper forms. Thank you for using the links below and reading this newsletter every week.
Don't forget we order Scrip on Monday.
Mr. Wiebers visited all of our grade levels this week to get to know students and share his expectations for the year. Knowing what is expected helps put our students on the right path to a successful year.
