From the Principal - Mr. Bell
It is hard to believe that is it already Spring Break. I am hopeful that Spring Break will bring a bit of warmer weather! We are working hard on making plans for the 2015-2016 school year and look forward to bringing some of those plans forward in the next month.
The LEAD Science Night was a huge success! Mrs. Bekkum and Mrs. Bowman did a great job bringing 3M Wizards and local scientists in to present! Students and families were very excited and have a great time! We hope to have some pictures on the website soon.
When we get back from Spring Break, on Friday, March 13th, don't forget about another great family event - A Movie Night - sponsored by the Home and School. The movie is going to be Mr. Peabody and Sherman. It starts at 7:00 pm in the school gym. Bring your pillows and blankets to enjoy the movie. You can also get a bag of popcorn and bottle of water for $1.00. As this is a family event, all children must be accompanied by an adult. Don't forget about the KC Fish Fry that night too. Up at church from 4:30 - 7:00 pm for your supper!
This Week’s Announcements
8th graders toured Hudson High School, 5th graders visited the UWRF Planetarium, and 4th graders went to the Minnesota History Center and Saint Paul Cathedral.
Wide World of Sports
The 6th grade girls' basketball team finished a tremendous season with a record of 17-2, losing a tough overtime game in the second round of playoffs. Nice job girls!
The 6th grade boys' basketball team won the St. Mary's of New Richmond tournament heading into their playoffs next week. The tournament included an overtime victory over a traveling team! The 5th and 8th grade boys' teams will also start playoffs next week - happy spring break! Good luck to all three teams.
The close of the basketball season also brought an end to the cheerleading season - and what a fantastic season it was! The girls enthusiastically cheered on our teams to numerous victories.
National Reading Month
In Honor of National Reading Month, the teachers of St. Patrick School would like to give a gift to our youngest students and our future students. Each day during the month of March we will post a bedtime story read by one of our teachers or staff members on our YouTube Channel: SPS Bedtime Stories.
You can subscribe to our channel to receive a notification when a new video is posted, or you can just log in each night. Click on the "Bedtime Stories" link at the bottom of the Newsletter.
We've had fun making them, and we hope you enjoy them too!
