Hello, and welcome to St. Patrick Catholic School! We’re so happy to have you here.

My name is Barbara Bolaños, and I am the current Principal at St. Pat’s. I’ve been involved in Catholic education basically all of my life, as a student, a parent, a teacher and an administrator. Ever since I began at St. Pat’s in 2014, the opportunity to work in this legacy school has been a true honor for me. I see the faith, servant leadership, and academic excellence that are embodied in the school’s mission and philosophy in action every day. (I should mention that we also have a lot of fun!)

This school and loving community mean so much to me that even my three grandchildren have become Shamrocks. It is great to have you as part of the Shamrock family as well. Let’s make sure to spend some time together.

As Principal, I humbly follow in the wake of two great leaders; namely, the legendary Chris Gavin and our new Superintendent, Nicholas Ford–which means I’ve got my work cut out for me. But, Mr. Ford likes to remind us that we’re all doing “God’s work”, and I obviously couldn’t have a better employer than that! 

Thanks for being here, St. Patrick, pray for us!

Barbara Bolaños
