Catholic Schools Week
The Catholic Schools Week committee is still busy finalizing some of the church and classroom events that will take place during Catholic Schools Week. We wanted to let you know of our special dress days during the week so you can ensure you have everything ready to CELEBRATE!
Students and staff will vary from elaborate to simple on their version of these dress days. Do what works for you and your family – no pressure! This is a way to have fun and create fond memories of St. Patrick School that will last a lifetime! If you need inspiration for saint costumes – check out the links below. In addition to priests and sisters there were doctors, farmers, and even princesses who became saints!

Jr. High – Thank you!
As a thank you to the 6th & 7th graders for turning in their textbook loan forms in a timely manner (and including 8th for fun) this Friday Jan 22nd – is a no-uniform on top day for Jr. High. Students may wear a hooded sweatshirt after mass.
Our water bottle supply is getting low. If you are able to pick up a case next time you go to the store and drop it off at pick up – we would appreciate it!
Dress code reminder: Smart watches are NOT allowed in school. Items like this are very difficult for teachers to monitor and could cause distractions in the classroom. If your child recently received a smart / fitness watch for Christmas – we ask that it stays at home. If a teacher notices a students with a smart watch – they may be asked to put it in their backpack or to let the teacher hang on to it for the reminder of the day. Thank you for your help!
Dress code is always available here: Dress Code | St Patrick’s Catholic School (stpatricklincolnschool.com)
