Sickness of Student
The staff requests that when your child comes down sick, please consider keeping your child home an extra day beyond the 24 hour time period just to make sure that the sickness has subsided. The student body is having the normal health illnesses in the classrooms that still can cause classmates and teachers to catch. If the sickness continues to keep coming back into the classroom then it cycles around and around without ever really getting rid of. The staff thanks you for your patience, cooperation, and understanding as we work through a return to normalcy. Please contact your child’s teacher for work that was missed.
The Book Fair Is Coming!
October 25th-29th - Scholastic Book Fair
It’s Book Fair time! St. Paul staff and students will shop during class. Watch for a “Wish List” to come home after your student visits the Book Fair. Friends and family can shop at dismissal on Thursday, Oct. 28th and during VIP Day on Friday, Oct. 29th.

Ways to help and stay connected:
  • Support in-person shopping by sending money in with your student. (CASH or CHECK made out to St. Paul.) In-person sales earn 50% for our school.

  • Join our Facebook event (on the school Facebook page) to see Class Wish Lists, book info, fair photos, and more.

Thank you for supporting the Book Fair.
Every purchase earns FREE BOOKS for our classrooms and library!
