Bring back the St Pat's we used to know & love!
Attending St Patrick Elementary used to bring a sense of PRIDE. Parents knew, without a doubt, that it was truly an excellent beginning for their children. Over the past year, the dishonesty, lack of communication, and lack of discretion in staff hiring used by the new administration is nothing short of embarrassing.
The emphasis placed on expansion of the 7th and 8th grades and a county-Collaborative PreK program (despite lack of attention to the current PreK program, including the fact that the Creative Curriculum was never purchased) has left a large portion of the current school's parents feeling disregarded. Concerns over a plethora of issues at the school have fallen on deaf ears.
Lack of organization, lack of appropriate input to the Advisory Board, hiring individuals who have been fired from Lewis County Schools, hiring an unqualified "curriculum director", not putting the needs of the current students or current staff first, taking over PTO meetings and making parents feel like their voice is not welcome, disregarding concerns over the cleanliness of the school... the list goes on!
Parents are witnessing discord like has never been seen before in the school. We want to bring back a St Patrick School that the entire school, and entire community, can be proud of!
