Employment Opportunities

Welcome Principal Mary Durand

Mrs. Mary (Mies) Durand, formerly the middle school math teacher at Humboldt Middle School, will assume the role as our principal here at St. Patrick's! Mrs. Durand began her teaching career by teaching for 4 years at St. Patrick Catholic School in Wichita. She then moved out to Humboldt with her husband Jeff, and has been teaching there for 24 years. Mrs. Durand holds a Masters of Science in Educational Leadership, has held numerous leadership positions within the school over the course of time, and is highly respected by her colleagues and the administration there at Humboldt Middle School. She is an active member of St. Joseph parish and attends Mass here with her family as well. She is excited to join us here at St. Patrick Catholic School, and I think she will do a fantastic job!

Grade 6 Promotion Ceremony 2016

May the Holy Triune God live in our hearts

and in the hearts of all people!


 The Catholic School is the extension of the Catholic Church, one of her arms in evangelizing children and families.  Our Catholic School is a nursery for the souls of our children who are foremost children of God - citizens of heaven!

So I thank the Catholic Diocese of Wichita for the Stewardship Way of Life that allows all children to receive Catholic education.  I sincerely thank all of you, the families of St. Patrick Catholic Church for your stewardship that provides a Catholic School here in Chanute for every child who desires a Christ-centered formation.

I commend the parents of all of our students, especially the families of our Grade 6 students, who made faith-based choices everyday -until 6th Grade- to send their children to the Catholic School.  When you participate in God's will for your children, He will reward your faithfulness.

So today, we celebrate these 6th graders and pray for them to continue growing as disciples of Jesus Christ who know, love and serve God.

By virtue of the authority vested on me by the Kansas State Department of Education Unified School District Z0031 Wichita CatholicSchools, I hereby present these students who are being promoted to 7th Grade.
