PARENT MEMO 17: December 14, 2021

Dear St. Patrick Catholic School Families,

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR
It is hard to believe this is the last parent memo for 2021. As Avent draws to a close and
Christmas is just around the corner I want to wish all the Saint Patrick Catholic School families a
very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

JOB OPENING
Saint Patrick Catholic School is a full time seeking an instructional teaching assistant. The full job
posting can be found here. If you are interested in applying for the position, please email
Christa Larkin at clark@stpatschoolnc.org

ADVENT PRAYER SERVICE AND OUTREACH PROJECT
St. Patrick Catholic School will be collecting adult winter hats, gloves, scarves, and socks for the
Fayetteville Area Operation Inasmuch. Please see this link for the dates you can join the school
on TEAMS for our prayer service.

UNIFORM POLICY CHANGES
There are some uniform policy changes that will occur over the remainder of the school year.
Sneakers: Students should wear sneakers to school daily, but they do not have to be solid
black. Moving forward sneakers should be “mostly black”. That means the sole may be white
(or a color other than white) and the sides may have an additional color. For example, the
sneaker may have a white Nike Swoosh, New Balance N, Adidas stripes, etc.…on the sides of the
sneaker. Please see this link for examples of acceptable shoes.
Leggings: Girls may wear plain, solid black leggings under their school uniform jumper, skirt, or
skort in place of tights.

COVID VACCINE FOR AGES 5-11
COVID 19 vaccines are now available to children ages 5 to 11. If you are interested in getting your
child vaccinated against COVID 19 use this link below to get up to date information.
Did you know that once your child is fully vaccinated, they will not need to quarantine if
there is an exposure unless they develop symptoms!

VOLUNTEERING AT ST. PATRICK CATHOLIC SCHOOL REQUIREMENTS
We will be allowing limited volunteers in the school this year. If you want to volunteer at the
