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.
Commencement activities for the Class of 2018 will be held on Wednesday, June 13, at 7:00 pm. At that time, 34 students will become our 16th Grade 8 graduating class, concluding their St. Patrick's careers and moving on to high school. All members of the St. Patrick's community are invited to join us in the Nave for this joyous occasion. We are honored to welcome a thought leader on women's leadership, diversity, and workplace flexibility, Manar Morales, as this year's speaker.
