3rd Annual Veteran's Day Prayer Service - Monday, November 11 @ 9:00

I want to encourage all parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends who are veterans or first responders to attend our 3rd annual Veteran's Day Prayer Service. This event has proven to be a special time to gather and honor those who have sacrificed for our freedom, and is a great opportunity for our students to give back and show their appreciation!

Please invite anyone you know who might be interested in being honored on this special day!

Auction Goal Challenge

Our auction was a huge success this year and we are so grateful to all those who helped make it possible. However, we are about $15,000 shy of our goal. Did you know that if every St. Patrick School family donated $100 we would cut that deficit in half???

Would you be willing to donate towards this goal? Anything helps close that gap and we appreciate you giving this some consideration!

We have had many GENEROUS families donate already. Thank you for your support of St. Patrick!!

St. Pius X Open House

Our friends at St. Pius will be holding their annual Open House on Thursday, November 14th from 3:30 - 6:30 pm. Stop by with your child to tour the school and learn more about the great things St. Pius has to offer!

Did you know????

* St. Pius is conveniently located right across the street from St. Patrick School. Where else could you send your child from PreK to Senior year all within walking distance???

* Students from St. Pius have weekly mass, often held right here at St. Patrick.

* Students from St. Pius are able to earn A+ hours by tutoring at St. Patrick School two days a week.

* 8th grade Students from St. Patrick receive a scholarship to attend St. Pius.

I highly encourage you to attend Open House to get an idea of what your child could receive by attending St. Pius X High School!

Each year for our Gobble Games, we ask students to donate canned food items to be used during the games and then donated to our St. Patrick food pantry. We will be collecting canned food items November 18-22.

You can still send in the traditional Box Tops as well, so keep clipping!

Clothing Drive - December 2-6

The week of December 2-6, we will be holding a clothing drive. We are asking you to go through your closets and bag up anything your family doesn't need anymore and bring it to school any day during this week. This is a great time to get all of those old unused items out of your closets in preparation for the winter season! We are looking for clothes, shoes, or coats.
