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.
Students in Grades 6 to 8 had a memorable experience with award-winning author Deborah Heiligman. Ms. Heiligman, the author of more than 30 books for children and teens—including Printz Honor, YALSA Nonfiction Award Winner, and Boston Globe-Horn Book Award Winner Vincent and Theo: The Van Gogh Brothers and National Book Award Finalist Charles and Emma: The Darwins' Leap of Faith—visited the MacArthur Campus to discuss her new nonfiction children's book, Torpedoed: The True Story of the World War II Sinking of "The Children's Ship."
