PARENT MEMO 11: November 2, 2021

Dear St. Patrick Catholic School Families,

VETERAN’S DAY
We will hold our annual Veteran’s Day program on Wednesday, November 10th virtually. Please
send in photos of your favorite veteran(s). Label each photo with name of student or family
and include the grade. We will return photos after the Veterans Day Program. We look
forward to honoring our veterans!
In honor of Veterans, the students can wear red, white, and blue to school on November 10th.

PENGUIN PATCH IS COMING
We are excited to bring the Penguin Patch to Saint Patrick Catholic School this year. Students
will be able to purchase small Christmas gifts for their loved ones the week of December 6th to
10th. More information to follow.

ON SITE COVID TESTING
Saint Patrick has partnered with MAKO medical to offer on-site diagnostic COVID testing. Should you
become symptomatic and need to have COVID test, Micaela Shea, our health coordinator can test
students on the school premises instead of you having to make an appointment elsewhere. Once tested,
MAKO will come to pick up the test sample and have your results back to you in 1-2 days. This service is
OPTIONAL and only performed on those who are symptomatic/have been exposed to COVID AND have
signed up for this service.
