There have been reported cases of the Chicken Pox virus in the community. The threat of contagion and transmission at St. Patrick’s School is minimal; however, prudence and vigilance is always advisable. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact the school at (304) 269.5547.
We will have all school Mass on Thursday, November 1 rather than the normal Friday as we will celebrate All Saints Day, a holy day of obligation. Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade will have their class-mass on Friday. To celebrate the Communion of Saints, we are asking children to dress up as a recognizable saint for November 1. They may wear their costume all day, including mass! Help your child pick a saint which would serve a good role model and has things in common. Students who are not dressed as saints, should come in formal uniform.
St. Patrick’s School will celebrate Halloween on Friday, October 19. We will begin by parading, then going to the gym after for pictures, and finally heading to the classrooms for the end of day parties. Since we are dismissing a bit earlier this year, we are asking parents to come in to help with costumes at 12:45 and begin the parade at 1:15. Please contact classroom teachers for party details.
St. Patrick’s School has been invited to march in the Weston Bicentennial Celebration Parade. The parade will start at 1:00 PM from the Robert Bland Middle School. We are asking as many students who can to please meet us at the roadway between the school and the athletic field at 12:00 PM, noon. Participating students should come in their dress uniform (tennis shoes are okay since we are walking outside). We will be walking together with our school banner and passing out St. Patrick’s Shamrocks to the spectators. We would also like to invite St. Patrick’s Alumni to walk with us. We will have Irishwear for purchase for alumni who wish to show their colors. The path of the parade will be along Fourth Street to Main, up main to First Street and down it. We hope everyone turns out to show their St. Patrick’s Pride!
