OVERVIEW

Saint Paul Catholic School is a vibrant community that engages not only in learning, but in a variety of life-enriching activities including athletics, extracurriculars, religion, and service. Our policies and programs help foster inclusion, kindness, respect for ourselves and others, and school pride-all of which culminate in a family-like environment that thrives on campus.

Our school participates in the Bucket Filler Program. Inspired by the book "Have you Filled Your Bucket Today?" by Carol McCloud, the program teaches children how easy and rewarding it is to express kindness, appreciation and love on a daily basis. The bucket filling concept is a simple one: We all carry an invisible bucket that holds our good thoughts and feelings. When our bucket is full, we feel happy; when our bucket is empty, we feel sad. We can fill another's bucket when we do and say things that are kind, caring, and respectful. We can help to empty someone's bucket by mean, unkind, or disrespectful behavior. What is so wonderful about the concept of bucket filling is that even the youngest child can understand that actions and words can either fill a bucket or dip into it.

We also have a mentoring program on campus called Family Friday that provides a forum for students to build relationships with students in different grade levels. Each student is assigned to a family which consists of a staff member and one student from each grade. The older students take on a mentoring role within the group. On Family Fridays, families wear their team t-shirts and sit together at Mass. Families also participate in monthly group activities such as service projects, competitions and parties. Our Family Friday program helps develop leadership skills, cooperation and friendships that span different grades to strengthen our school community. Did we mention our families have a lot of fun?

At Saint Paul, our students have Panther pride! On the first Monday of each month, students can show their school spirit by wearing spirit wear which is sold through the school office. We also host an Annual Spirit Run.

A featured after-school activity is chaperoned dances that enable our middle school students to develop their social skills with peers outside of the classroom. These dances are a huge hit among students in grades six through eight.
