St. Patrick School announces expansion
MERIDIAN – Enough families committed to St. Patrick School to allow for the addition of an eighth grade for the 2016-17 school year. Enrollment for the new grade is open now and spots are still available.
“By adding 8th grade next year, our students will be able to finish their middle school years here at St Patrick,” explained principal Jennifer David. “At such a vital time in their lives, it is important they have a safe and nurturing environment where they can continue to thrive and grow,” she added
Parents are also thrilled about the announcement. “I am so excited for the future of St Patrick School. I feel blessed that my boys will get to continue their Catholic education through eighth grade at such a wonderful place. Every time I walk through the doors at St Patrick School, it feels like home,” said parent Angela Wassell.
St. Patrick has a pre-kindergarten through eighth grade program and opened an expansion to the school last year, allowing for an expanded library and new classroom space.
Registration and school information is available on their website, or by calling. 601-482-6044.
