Panther Traks – 8/17

We survived the chaos of the first day without any casualties and I’d like to thank…

  1. The students for their smiles and laughter,
  2. The parents for their patience and support,
  3. The faculty and staff for making sure that everyone learned and stayed safe,
  4. Mr. and Mrs. Shaver for volunteering in the lunch room,
  5. Fr. Jason for inspiring our faith at Mass, and…
  6. Gemma for patrolling the grounds and making sure that no snacks went left unchecked!

St. Paul Panthers are the best and we are looking forward to an amazing year!

Panther Tracks – July

With great joy Saint Paul Parish announces that Mrs. Kemberly Markham has been chosen to be the principal at the parish school starting with the 2017/2018 school year. Mrs. Markham was recommended by the search committee and has over twenty-five years of experience in education. Before accepting the position of principal at St. Paul Parish School, Mrs. Markham served most recently as the assistant superintendent of schools in the Diocese of Gary, Indiana. She has taught in the Indiana public school system for 13 years and has also served as principal for a Catholic school for 10 years. She is known for her dedication, leadership and innovation. St. Paul Parish is blessed to have Mrs. Markham as our new principal. Please join me in welcoming her.

– Very Reverend Michael Barth

 

 

Dr Tony Rieglings Letter 5/25/17

Greetings!

Well here we are. Our year is ending, and we say goodbye for the summer. St. Paul is an outstanding community dedicated to learning and the growth of faith in each person we meet. We have had an excellent year. Our students have shown their academic strength in some demanding extracurricular competitions. They have shown their creativity in areas from art and writing to engineering.

We have had a great year sacramentally. Our retreat days have been an exciting way to urge us on toward a stronger faith life; bringing faith into everyday things. Our second graders continued their faith journey as they received the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist for the first time. Our eighth graders completed their Sacraments of Initiation as they were confirmed. Throughout the year, we attended Mass together, we attended mass and Eucharistic Adoration on First Friday, joined our prayers in the Rosary, and commemorated special days like May Crowning.

We have come together for some excellent social events. From the back-to-school bash, through events like the walk-a-thon plays, talent shows, and the Blue and Gold Bash, we have celebrated our friendships and common purpose. I have said often “we sure know how to have a good time.” There are so many ways to help each of us celebrate our success even as we continue to work hard for the success of our school.

There are innumerable people who have helped us. We always begin by thanking God, of course, for giving us the opportunity to do what we do here at St. Paul. We thank Fr. Barth and Fr. Bertke, for their vision and leadership within our community. We thank all the members of our Education Committee for their dedication and involvement as they help keep our school strong. We thank the faculty and staff of St. Paul for their dedication as they have worked so hard to help our students grow in faith and knowledge. Thanks, also, to the parents and families of our students. We are grateful for your choice to entrust us with the education of your children. We are honored to have been your partners in their care and formation over this past year. Finally, our thanks to our students. They have worked hard, learned so much, and are growing to be the kind of young people we can all be proud of.

I hope you have had the opportunity to join us from time to time. While we try to describe our experience, it is something best experienced in person. Please consider joining us next year.

For our last reflection, I leave you with this thought: “Jesus wants to bring peace to the world through you.” How we live our lives matters. We influence those we meet every day. Our challenge is to live our lives in a way that increases the peace—to be a Peace Builder.

I have been honored to serve the St. Paul community and will always remember my experience here with gratitude and affection.

Have a great summer.

Building Success at Home

I wanted to share a great article about how to teach kids self-regulation skills at home.  When kids learn to become more self-aware and able to regulate feelings, they are able to be more successful.  Take a look at the article below!
