We are excited to announce that the Board of Trustees has appointed Jalene Spain Thomas as the fourth Head of School at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Day School, effective July 1, 2022, following a robust national search. Unanimously recommended by the Search Committee, Jalene received the enthusiastic, unanimous support of the Board of Trustees and, in turn, the Vestry of St. Patrick’s Parish, which ratified the appointment. She will succeed current Head of School Peter A. Barrett.
The exciting process of drawing Head of School-designate Jalene Spain Thomas into the St. Patrick’s community continues on a variety of fronts. Jalene will become only the fourth Head of School in St. Patrick’s 65-year history when she begins her work on July 1, 2022.
“I am joyfully committed to working with you to continue to nurture the vibrant St. Patrick’s of today while realizing the promise of the St. Patrick’s of tomorrow.”
