Collection for Teachers

This Sunday, December16, we will be having a second collection after each mass for the teachers’ bonuses. Every year we honor our schools hardworking, dedicated teachers and their outstanding support staff with a bonus during the holiday season. St. Patrick's school is very blessed to have such a wonderful group of teachers. Every teacher is an asset to our school and the parents and students are blessed to be a part of this. Any donation is greatly appreciated. All are welcome to come to St. Patrick's annual Christmas program on December 20 at 7:00 p.m.

Sparkly strips of paper are coming home with each child. These will be joined together to create a paper chain that will adorn the beautiful trees in our atrium. Please take some time to talk with your child and write a Christmas intention on the back side. Intentions can be anything you want them to be – whatever is appropriate for your child/family is best! (Intentions will not be shared and no names are needed) THANK YOU!

**Calendar Update**

NO SCHOOL Monday Feb. 4th. The teachers have an amazing opportunity to attend a full-day professional development training with the Marzano Center. This is a hands-on session in which teachers will create a toolbox filled with strategies, tools, and resources to help them tailor the learning environment to student needs. This full-day training is funded with federal money and is an occasion we didn’twant to pass up. We apologize for adding this date to the calendar, and thank you for your support in providing this experience for our teachers.
