This Week . . .
NO SCHOOL THIS FRIDAY! This includes no School Age Care.
K-3 Conferences were Tuesday and Thursday. Thank you so much to all the families who made teacher meals or brought in supplies. Our parents are the best!
We had some unwelcome visitors to our school this week! A few cases of head lice were discovered, so this can serve as our reminder at this time of year to diligently check your children’s hair. Volunteers Dolly Hastreiterand Monica Collinson spent several hours checking students’ hair. One young student seated outside the nurse’s office waiting to be screened remarked, “They’re using chopsticks and going to eat our hair!” Custodial staff will be performing deep cleaning throughout the school.This Saturday evening after Mass: Jesse Manibusan in concert, 7:00pm @ church.
Next Week...Red Ribbon Week
October 27th, Jesse Manibusan will hold a concert for school children, 10:00am @ school.
Parents are welcome to attend.
Wendy’s Night, Tuesday October 28th, 5-7pm. 20% of sales come back to Saint Patrick’s.
Out of Uniform!!! Thursday October 30th. Students may wear black, orange, purple, or Halloween prints.

A Message from Mr. Noll . . .Love Yourself. Be Drug Free. This is the theme of Red Ribbon Week October 23-31! The Red Ribbon Campaign is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation, reaching millions of young people through community and school-based initiatives. Saint Patrick is joining together with communities across the country to take a stand in encouraging young people to make a personal commitment to adopt a drug-free lifestyle.
According to the National Family Partnership, children of parents who talk to their teens regularly about drugs are 42% less likely to use drugs than those who don’t; yet only a quarter of teens report having those conversations. Red Ribbon Week is your opportunity to get the ongoing conversation started.
Visit www.redribbon.org to learn more about Red Ribbon Week and access tips for talking to your children about drugs. The life you save may be that of your own child or a dear friend.
Peace & Blessings!
