Parent Memo: December 11, 2020 PRINCIPAL’S CORNER: Dear Parents, As we celebrate the season of Advent, we prepare ourselves for the celebration of the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ at Christmas. Advent is a time of hopeful waiting; a time when we answer the call of John the Baptist: “Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths.” May our prayerful observance of this season of Advent draw us nearer to our loving and merciful God. While the secular world is focusing on external gifts, may we remain focused on the true meaning of this season—the birth of [...]
Parent Memo: December 4, 2020 PRINCIPAL’S CORNER: Dear Parents, It is with profound sadness that I announce I must resign as the Principal of St. Patrick Catholic School in June 2021 at the end of the school year. I have found a warm and welcoming home here at St. Patrick’s, and I had hoped to remain with the school for many years to come. However, my personal health challenges will not let me continue along this path. I cherish the friendships I have made and will always remember my time here with happiness and love. I thank you for entrusting me [...]
PRINCIPAL’S CORNER: Since there won’t be a newsletter next week, on behalf of the faculty and staff, I’d like to wish all families a happy and thankful Thanksgiving holiday now. What I am most thankful for this year is that our school has been able to remain open so far. In order to keep it that way, we all need to remain vigilant about proper protection measures if traveling or gathering in groups. We want everyone to have a safe and satisfying holiday. Please read the letter below from the Diocese of Raleigh Superintendent of School. In Service, Ms. Laura [email protected] [...]

LIKE US ON FACEBOOK: Parent Memo: November 6, 2020 PRINCIPAL’S CORNER: Please check the fitting on your child’s mask. We have a number of children who have to pull up their masks all day long. It’s difficult enough for children to have to wear a mask all day but made doubly difficult by having to fiddle with it constantly because it is poorly fitting. Proper fit is important not only for disease prevention but also for peace of mind for the child. The biggest problem we see is masks slipping down off the nose, and some that even hang down to [...]
LIKE US ON FACEBOOK: Parent Memo: October 30, 2020 PRINCIPAL’S CORNER: Have a blessed All Saint’s Day on Sunday! Although we do celebrate Halloween with the kiddos, we teach it in the historical context of All Hallow’s Eve, the night before All Saint’s Day on November 1st. We have worked on activities and projects in class in commemoration of this holiday. So make sure that after the sugar rush of Halloween has passed, you take some time to talk to your children about the importance of Saints in our lives as being role models of people who followed their faith steadfastly.

We so appreciate all the support we have received from our families so far, and we continue to ask for that support as we enter this crucial season. Again, I reiterate that every family needs to have a “Plan B” in place just in case there are school closures. What’s the Boy Scout motto? Be Prepared. They knew what they were [...]
Parent Memo: October 9, 2020 PRINCIPAL’S CORNER: Wednesday was the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. A group of our 4th graders decided to take it upon themselves, completely independently, to pray the Rosary during their recess for safety and peace in our country. The group was organized and led by Sophia Long and Gia Khang VoNguyen and attended by Sandy Jimenez-Martinez, Brynna Koorsen, Drew Tagne, Evelyn Orzech, Eden Hibler, Kaitlin Martin, and Madison Bentz. The prayers of children get to God faster, and we thank them for their caring spirits. In Service, Ms. Laura [email protected] SCHOOL UNIFORM REMINDERS [...]
Parent Memo: October 2, 2020 PRINCIPAL’S CORNER: Please be reminded that the students’ mid-trimester progress reports are completed and online for viewing through their Gradelink portal. Please take a look at them prior to your parent/teacher conference and contact your teacher with questions or concerns. In Service, Ms. Laura [email protected] HALLOWEEN DRESS DOWN CLARIFICATION I realized after I had noted on the calendar below regarding Halloween Dress Down Day that “masks” mean different things around Halloween time. When I noted that kids can wear Halloween-themed masks, I mean the Covid 19 facial protection masks that we have been wearing since [...]
