DECEMBER 16, 2021

May your holiday be filled with joy and peace! This holiday season we have so many reasons to celebrate. The joint efforts of parents, teachers and staff has given way to a very productive first half of the year. As you have seen in our newsletters, faith, service, and excellence have filled our days together. I am so proud of the students and their accomplishments and my heart is full of thanks for the teachers, staff and parents who continue to go above and beyond to ensure our success!

We are such a special family here at St. Patrick Catholic School! Please keep Mrs. Stone in your prayers as she undergoes surgery to treat her cancer diagnosis. Mrs. Stone will be recovering for a few weeks, and Mrs. Byers will fill in for her after break. Blessings and continued strength to you and your family, Mrs. Stone.

Merry Christmas from all of us and safe travels throughout our Christmas Break. We will see you all back on January 4th!

The Main Event is back for 2022. Our committee has begun securing auction items for our evening of live music and fun at the Hilton Garden Inn on Saturday, Feb. 26. If you have an item or service to donate to the auction, or can secure one, contact Laura Dobson at or 319-277-6781. What's the Main Event? It's a celebration of our school and a chance to get adults together to celebrate and support our school. It's how we close out our Annual Appeal which we are kicking off this week!

We love our 2021 sponsors including those at the Friend and Supporter levels too! They have made so much possible at St. Patrick Catholic School!


Letters for our Annual Appeal have been going in the mail all week. I thank everyone who supports our school with time, talent, and treasure. There are so many ways to make a difference in the education and lives of our students. Take a look at your letter to see how we use your gifts. We hope you will join in by praying for our success, giving a gift, or participating in our Main Event. If you know someone who would like to share the gift of Catholic education, let them know how they can join in our efforts for the Annual Appeal or the Main Event.
