School Notes:

Saint Patrick School, founded in 1872, is a Catholic School that is sponsored by the parish and serves students from grades pre-kindergarten to eight. Through education, the school community strives to enable its students to assimilate the knowledge, attitudes, and values that prepare them to take their place as active members of society, while witnessing to the Gospel message.
The primary concern and responsibility of our Saint Patrick School community is to meet the challenges of educating the whole child to achieve his or her unique potential spiritually, morally, emotionally, intellectually, physically, and culturally. Acting as role models, the clergy, faculty, and staff communicate a personal love of Christ to the students and build in them an ever, deepening relationship and commitment to Him and a belief that they can achieve.
The school sets advanced academic standards for all students while employing varied methodologies to reach each child at his or her own level in order to provide positive, learning experiences.
