Writing & Learning Center Kicks Off Parent Series with "Starting School Right"
We hope you will share your wonderful St. Patrick's stories with family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues—word-of-mouth is how most families find us! In addition, please let your network know about our upcoming Parent Programs:
Since 1979, St. Patrick's has maintained a relationship with St. Etienne Church and School in Haiti. During the Fall Break Weekend, seven faculty and staff members joined retired physical education teacher Marcy Ference to return to the mountain where St. Etienne is located. The team brought ukeleles and ate, worshipped, and sang with our partners.
Anyone who travels from St. Patrick's to St. Etienne must confront and comprehend both the profound material poverty in Haiti and the powerful joy, love, sense of community, and decades of history between the two partners. Here are two of seven reflections. All seven will be included in the upcoming fall edition of the St. Patrick's Press. Stay tuned!

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.
