Parent Teacher Organization

The Parent-Teacher Organization, referred to as PTO, is composed of teachers and parents of St. Patrick School children.  Through combined efforts, PTO nurtures the growth of the school; supports the administration, faculty and students; and helps augment the financial and material resources needed to assure quality educational programs in a manner consistent with stewardship.  All decisions or recommendations of the PTO are subject to approval by the principal.  The PTO meets monthly in the school Library.  Meeting reminders are sent through school reach, school bulletins and parish bulletins.  The PTO needs your support, enthusiasm, talents, and ideas.  Parents are asked to make it a priority to be present and involved even with everyone’s busy schedules.  Do take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to share your gifts to make St. Patrick Catholic School noted for its academic excellence in a truly faith-filled and joyful school environment.

Invitation and Message from PTO

Good Morning!!  Just wanted to remind you about the skating party tonight from 6PM-8PM at skate city.  All school children, including preschool and their families are invited to come and skate tonight as we continue our celebration of Catholic Schools Week!

PTO will have a fun gift for the children tonight and will provide water to drink.  All additional concessions will be available to purchase from the skating rink.

I would like to thank our Catholic Schools Week Committee for a job very well done:
Mica Hess, Jamie Fickel, Jill Kreighbaum, Mary James, Thressa Cuin, Kelli Donaldson, Ashley Tindle, Monique Zaragosa, Rayna Harbin, Jill Kepley, Jayci Chaney, Erin and Scott McKinney.  Family Night was phenomenal and the Grandparents Day lunch was amazing!!  Without the dedication of hardworking volunteers we wouldn't be able to provide so many special and fun activities for our kiddos!  We are truly blessed with an amazing school community/family!

See you all tonight for some skating fun!!

I inadvertently left Brooke Dyke off my list of thanks!!!  She is a master chocolate cake maker, and we wouldn't have had all of that yummy cake yesterday without her!  Sorry Brooke and Thank You!!!
