Parent & Student Resources
All parents who have email addresses on file with the school have been sent their username and password either at the beginning of the school year or when they enrolled their child(ren) during the year. Upper classmen may also have their own username and password which allows them access to their class pages, grades, and assignments.
(Please note that these usernames and passwords will roll over into the new year if you are continuing with the school.)
If you have forgotten your username or password, once you click on the Gradelink Portal button below, please click the “Forgot Password” link. You will need to use the email address that the school has on file. If you are still unable to access the portal, please see our Gradelink Help page or contact the school.
Technology in Education
We have made many advances in the use of technology across the campus throughout the past few years. We believe that technology, when used correctly, can greatly enhance the curriculum by creating engaging lessons and activities that excite the students, allow differentiation of the curriculum, and incorporate 21st century skills.
All students, K-8, attend weekly classes in the Computer Lab. Lessons are integrated with the grade level standards and the classroom curriculum.
St. Patrick has implemented the use of iPads in a one-to-one and group environment in the Kindergarten – 8th Grade classrooms. Students use educational applications to practice the skills taught in class. St. Patrick was featured in the Tribune for its use of iPads in the classroom. Click here to read the article.
Interactive Smart Boards:
Several classrooms are equipped with interactive Smart Boards which allow the teacher and the students to manipulate graphics and text with the touch of a finger.
3rd – 8th grade students have access to Chromebooks throughout the school day. The Chromebooks allow teachers to integrate technology within the curriculum.
Document Cameras / Mounted Projectors:
All classrooms are equipped with a front-mounted projector and document camera. These devices allow the teacher to project a live image from a book, worksheet, or object for all students to see. Teachers can also connect their laptop to share digital media with the students.
Jr. High Elective:
Students are given the opportunity to join the Technology Elective during one of their 3 trimesters throughout the year. The Elective covers a variety of topics, taught on MAC and PC, such as Graphic Arts, Coding, Robotics, Web Design, and MakerSpace.
Support The Annual Fund
St. Patrick School takes great pride in offering an affordable, well-rounded Catholic education to its families. We emphasize the individual student by providing effective, innovative instruction infused with faith. Combined, these give our students a solid academic and moral base which will prepare them for the twenty-first century.
Updating our programs and keeping tuition at a reasonable level are of the utmost importance to us at St. Patrick School. We turn to our friends and families to help us in this endeavor. There are many ways that you can show support for the St. Patrick School community.
Volunteering opportunities are vast for our families. Each brings a talent to share and we continue to be blessed with families sharing their time and talents with us. Our school community is rich with families committed to a strong school/home partnership.
Fundraising is another avenue of support for St. Patrick School. Our fundraising endeavors such as our annual BBQ/Auction and Christmas tree sale provide monies to bridge the gap between the actual cost of educating a child and the cost of tuition. Parents, friends, and parishioners are integral to our successful fundraising activities and continue to support us keep tuition affordable.
Finally, the school is launching an annual giving program that will help the school continue its tradition of excellence and move us forward in future growth and development.
St. Patrick School is grateful for your continued support of our programs. We believe that every gift of time, talent, or treasure we receive is an answered prayer. Thank you for your support.
