New School Family management system

We're almost ready to fully roll out the new School Family management system.  But we're far enough along to let you set up your account and start looking around!  

Visit parents.stpatsparish.org and select "Create New Parents/Web Account"

You'll be prompted for your email address already on file with the school.  If you get an error, you may not have provided that email address to the school office.  Send a note with your EMail address and Family name to "school@stpatsparish.org" and we'll help get you set up.

Drama Club Leaders Needed

Hello Parents, St. Patrick Drama Club is seeking new leaders for Kindergarten - 3rd grade students.

Bethany Jaworski and Denise LeNeave will be taking over the 4th - 8th grade students, and therefore are looking for volunteers to lead the younger students. We recommend 2 co-leaders to facilitate Drama Club practices after school 1 day a week January through mid-March, as well as direct a short play at the end of the season.

No experience needed...just enthusiasm to work with bright, creative, and talented children. Bethany and Denise will guide the new co-leaders through various lesson plan ideas and help make sure the transition is seamless. The time commitment needed is ~1 hour per week lesson planning, 1 1/2 hours per week practice after school or evenings, and approx. 8-10 hours performance preparation.

Note: The practice days and times are flexible and can be set according to your schedule.

Please contact Bethany Jaworski if you are interested in leading K-3rd grade Drama Club next year. If you aren't sure and have questions, please email Bethany at bethanyjaworski@hotmail.com or Denise at  dmleneave@aol.com to discuss. We promise you will have a blast with these kids!

Thank you!

Bethany Jaworski & Denise LeNeave

2017-2018 Irish Athletics & Summer Sports

If you haven't turned in your IRISH ATHLETICS registration forms for 2017-18 Fall Cross Country, Girls Volleyball and Co-Ed Soccer, NOW is the time to get that done!!  The complete registration forms are here: Registration and Physical Forms Packet

For anyone interested in knowing more about summer sports camps, check out the information below on some of the best in the area:

IRISH ATHLETIC’S BASKETBALL CAMP:
The Irish Athletic Department, by popular demand, this summer is going to have a basketball skills camp one day a week for 2 hours. It will be held on Wednesday afternoons from 4-6pm in the Fieldhouse, beginning on June 7th and going through the summer with the final session being August 2, but taking July 5th off – so 8 sessions in total. It will be open to boys and girls going into grades 5th-8th who are interested in furthering their basketball skills. The camp will focus on fundamentals and will not be actual practices for any specific team/grade. THIS IS A FREE CAMP!  No registration fee or forms required and we understand that summers are a busy time and that most kids will not be able to make all 8 sessions, but we strongly encourage all kids planning on participating in basketball next year to attend as many sessions as possible. Bring plenty of water and be sure to wear proper shoes. If you have any questions regarding these sessions, feel free to contact Katie Whalen at katiecwhalen@eaton.com.
