Dear Families,

Welcome to St. Patrick's School! I'm so happy that you took the time to stop by and look at our updated website.  I am proud of the tradition of excellence that St. Patrick's has continued for 95 years! We have a highly-trained and caring faculty and staff that helps create a family atmosphere at school. Jesus is present in all that we do, all that we think, and all that we say. It is important for us to teach as Jesus did, in an environment where your WHOLE child will be educated.

Students are involved in monthly service projects, are expected to treat others with kindness, caring, and respect, as well as do their best when it comes to academics. We have a stong curriculum which includes daily lessons in Religion, Math, English Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Health and Safety, Spelling, Phonics, and Handwriting. Students in grades K-6 participate in specials that include Physical Education, Art, Music, Library, Technology, Spanish, and Dance.

Catholic values are taught and infused into our daily routines. We attend monthly School Masses and prayer services that the students plan, we have daily prayer together every morning, students pray before and after lunch, and again before going home for the day. It is important to keep Jesus at the forefront of all of our activities here at St. Patrick's. 

We also offer a comprehensive Pre-K program, with a certified teacher, that prepares students for Kindergarten. We offer flexible schedules to fit the needs of you and your child. We also offer a hot lunch and recess daily! This is often the favorite time of day because students get to go outside often, play together and just be kids!

I would love to have you consider our school for your student(s). Please call (315) 363-3620 , email me at  khealt@syrdiocese.org, or stop by for a tour. I look forward to hearing from you!


Peace and Blessing,


Kristin L. Healt
