Christmas Cheer is Here!

Dear St. Patrick Faculty and Staff,


The 3 weeks leading up to Christmas break aren't always filled with Christmas cheer,

To counter that, I'm adding something fun to finish up this year!


Read each day carefully, for the fun times that await,

Some days there are prizes, too, so join in...don't be late!


Enjoy the Christmas season while we finish up quarter two,

Have a little fun with this appreciation game for you!
