I started at St. Patrick School in 2012 and since then there has always been talk of purchasing a dishwasher for our cafeteria. I know that the talk began long before I came, so it's been several years of talking about it! Well, guess what.....IT'S HERE!!
Thanks to a very generous donation from the St. Patrick PTO, we now have a dishwasher! Our students are finally able to eat off of actual trays and real silverware! They are drinking out of plastic cups versus paper cups. Best of all, the waste from plastic and paper has been eliminated!
We are truly blessed at St. Patrick School to have a PTO who does so much for us. I hope that you will join me on Tuesday, September 25th at 6:00 pm for the official "unveiling" of the dishwasher at the first PTO meeting of the school year. We can't wait to share our gratitude and excitement with you.
Weekend School Mass - September 9
I hope to see many of our students in attendance!
