Book Fair - Thank You!
In true Wildcat style, St. Paul families generously supported our Book Fair. We smashed last year’s record and earned more than $2,300 in FREE books for our classrooms and library! Also, shoppers donated an additional 85 books to St. Paul from our “Classroom Wish Lists.” Thrivent made it possible to give 25 students books and prizes through our classroom drawings.

A special thank you to Lisa Scholtz, Megan Kusterer, Sheri Lusher, Chelsea Vermeesch, Gretchen Jurek, and Rachel Appold who gave of their time and talents. You helped to make the Book Fair a huge success. I am so thankful for you. - Kristen Glasser

COVID Procedure
In the event of a possible Covid exposure within your immediate family, please follow the diagram below. St. Paul asks that you, as the parent, take it upon yourself to have a testing procedure processed if you deem it necessary to do so. If the unforeseen circumstances of a positive case results, please inform the school office or your teacher. Please continue to work hard in keeping your child healthy and free of symptoms. St. Paul does encourage you to stay home if you believe your child is not feeling well in general. By following this procedure we ensure that face to face learning continues for the benefit of all even when one or two may be on the sidelines feeling under the weather.
