Grandparent Day 2018 is in the books as a joyful day of prayer, storytelling and beautiful music. Check out the photos and video shared by our gracious volunteer photographers Avery Genge and Shea Cochran.  And our deepest thanks to our photographers and many volunteers who make this event a memorable one.


Saint Patrick Catholic School is hosting Grandparents Day on April 26, 2018. We look forward to celebrating with grandparents, relatives, family friends, and other adults important to our students!

5th – 8th grade

All grandparents and special guests are invited to Mass at Saint Patrick Catholic Church at 8:45 A.M. Parents, please consider attending if your student doesn’t have an available grandparent or guest. Or, please encourage your student to “adopt a grandparent” for the day and sit with their friends’ grandparents and guests.
 
Mass concludes at 9:45 A.M. and all guests are invited to a reception and performance in the Parish Hall 9:45 – 10:30 A.M. Light breakfast fare will be served. There is no cost associated with this event and no RSVP required. Students return to class at 10:45 A.M. There are no classroom visits scheduled.
  
Unfortunately, due to a scheduling conflict, the 7th grade students and faculty will not be attending Grandparent’s Day this year. Instead, 7th grade students will be at the Mount Rainier Science Institute and enjoying that incredible experience. We will miss them and wish them well.
  
There are no dietary accommodations available at the breakfast. There is no hot lunch served Wednesday, April 25th or Thursday, April 26. 5th – 8th grade students will be eating lunch in their classrooms on both days.

For students in Pre-Kindergarten – 4th grades

All grandparents, special guests and PK – 4th grade students are invited to a luncheon at St. Patrick School – Skip Butler Gymnasium. Doors open at 11:30 A.M. and lunch begins at 12:00 P.M. Parking is available on the upper playground from 11:00 A.M. – 1:30 P.M. Lunch is catered and seating is assigned and limited. Each seat is $10 (guests and students alike). Tickets can be purchased in the office, online by clicking on the button below or complete an order form and send it in with your student. Ticket sales closes on April 25, 2018.

Parents, please consider purchasing seats and attending if your student doesn’t have an available grandparent or guest. Or consider purchasing a seat for your student and “adopting a grandparent” for the day. Our goal is to have all students seated with guests and enjoying the beautifully catered luncheon.
  
All Pre-Kindergarten – 4th grade students will eat in the gym with guests on the 26th. If your students doesn’t purchase a ticket or partner with another grandparent or guest, faculty will dine with your student and your student will need to bring a lunch from home to enjoy.
  
There are no dietary accommodations available at the luncheon. The luncheon menu is posted online. There is no hot lunch served Wednesday, April 25 or Thursday, April 26. PK – 4th grade students will eat in their classroom on the 25th and need to bring a lunch from home.
  
Grandparents and guests must sign-in. Volunteers will be stationed at all main entrances. And they must, with parent approval, sign out any students that are leaving early for the day. No student will be allowed to leave without prior parent approval and all students must be signed out at the main office.
