PARENT MEMO 6: September 28, 2021 


Dear St. Patrick Catholic School Families, 


Parent teacher conferences are this Thursday and Friday.  School will release at 12:15 on Thursday to allow for conferences to begin that afternoon.  If you have not scheduled a conference and wish to do so, please reach out to your child’s homeroom teacher.   


The Diocese of Raleigh will hold IOWA testing for 3rd to 8th grade students the week of October 4th to October 15th.  Please check your calendar and make every effort to have your child to school on time as we will test in the mornings.  Getting a good night sleep and eating a protein breakfast are two things that can get your student(s) off to a good start each morning.   


Mark your calendar for Tuesday, October 26, 2021, for picture Day.  All students will be photographed for the school yearbook.  Students should wear regular uniform to school that day even if they have PE.  The best dress options for pictures are either the green polo or jumper with blouse. 


On Friday, October 29th the students are invited to participate in a Fun Halloween Dress Day.  Students may wear Halloween colors and/or fun Halloween theme shirts and bottoms. No violent or scary images allowed.   

Due to the Halloween Dress Down Day, we will move spirit day to Friday, October 22nd. 


We are starting to plan for our winter sports.  We will offer boys’ basketball, girls’ basketball and cheerleading for the winter.  If you are interested in coaching one of these groups, please email Christa Larkin at [email protected].  Once we have secured coaches, we will send out interest forms. We can only move forward with the teams if we have coaches as well as enough students interested in participating.   


We will be allowing limited volunteers in the school this year. If you want to volunteer at the school, you must complete the volunteer application which includes attending a Safe Environment Training (SET)class. There are a few online trainings this month. Please see below.  

Safe Environment Training Calendar 

In addition to attending the SET training, all volunteers need to complete an application with the Diocese of Raleigh.  You can turn your completed application into the front office.
