Dr. Harmon's Message
It has been a great pleasure getting to know so many of you and your children these past few weeks!! I would like to thank you for your cooperation regarding standard operating procedure changes. We are always looking for ways to make the school run smoothly but more importantly, safely!! Your patience is much appreciated!
Please welcome Melissa Thimesch to our school staff. She will be working Monday through Thursday afternoons in the resource room. We are still looking for a morning resource teacher so if you or someone you know may be interested, please call the school office.
Please join me in congratulating Mrs. Walker for being awarded the South Central Special Education Cooperative teacher of the year. We are so proud to have her part of the St. Patrick Catholic School staff. Way to go!!!
This year we will be implementing Virtue Based Restorative Discipline (VBRD). We will have a kick-off assembly next Friday, August 31st at 2:45 in the gym. All are welcome! Our virtue for this first quarter is Peace: a state of calm or quiet showing love and unity. Over the next quarter, students will be participating in various activities that focus on ways to live out this virtue daily. We need the support and commitment of all parents in order for this program to be successful. There will be some days that students will be bringing home "family homework." Please take advantage of these opportunities to grow in faith with your family. I realize time is in strong demand with various other commitments you may have so I thank you in advance for making this a priority.
As your principal, I hope to do all I can to support you in forming your children as Disciples of Christ. I want you to know that I welcome any comments or concerns anytime!! I wish you all a wonderful and blessed year.
