Grade 5 students presented their grant proposals for the Gifts for Good alternative gift fair to members of the Gifts for Good Planning Committee and the Parents Association Tuesday. Students seek $25 grants from the PA to buy materials to create token gifts and supplies to create table displays for the fair on Saturday, December 9, from 11:00 am to 2:30 pm in the Gymnasium and Performance Center.
Each year at Gifts for Good, attendees make donations to a variety of organizations in exchange for token gifts that can be given to family and friends in place of more traditional consumer products. With PA funds to offset expenses, proceeds from each Gifts for Good table can go to supporting the organizations researched by students.
This year's fair will support a variety of local, domestic, and international organizations such as No Kid Hungry, United for Puerto Rico, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and Horizons Greater Washington, along with our annual support of St. Etienne, our partner school in Haiti.
The 16th Annual Parents of Black Students Association (PBSA) Holiday Potluck will be held on Monday, December 11, at 5:30 pm in the Gymnasium and Performance Center. This event is open to the entire St. Patrick's community.
Come celebrate family and community with us. Enjoy great food, conversation, and some fun surprises.
Exceptional Literacy is the intention and the destination of the educational journey at St. Patrick’s. It prepares each student to seek new knowledge, to fulfill a greater sense of personal responsibility, and to understand and communicate effectively with others. At the forefront of this effort are our talented and dedicated faculty and staff, working in close partnership with families to support each student.
