The Jones County Family Council is planning for their School Supply Distribution for the 21-22 School Year to children and families in need.
Families can leave a message at the 319-462-5318 phone number and their call will be returned in July as we make plans for distribution. Backpacks will be tailored to meet the needs of individual students according to their grade level and can be picked up outside of Strawberry Hill Elementary or delivered to the appropriate community/school building.
Preschool Families, Sherri Hunt, Director of Cedar/Jones ECI, has just released the FY22 Preschool Scholarship application. Please fill out the application and return it to our secretary, Terrie Prybil. Also, do not hesitate to share this wonderful opportunity with other families interested in attending St. Patrick Preschool! God Bless, Michael J. Volk, PrincipalPreschool Families,

Parents, Guardians, and especially new families to St. Patrick School: To Receive Text Message Alerts through School Messenger: Using your cell phone, text Y to 68453. You will receive an automated text response back stating that you are now registered to receive notifications. If you are not sure if you are signed up, go ahead and do it again. These text alerts are mainly for school delays, school cancellations, COVID announcements, or for notifying parents of emergency situations, but may also be used for reminders too. Please notify Terrie directly if, after signing up to receive text message alerts, you did not receive a text alert at 2:30. Terrie will check PowerSchool to make sure your number is in the database correctly. If you do need to contact Terrie, please make sure you provide your full name and cell phone number (along with student name) for her to verify. Her email address is: email@example.com Thank you! God Bless, Michael J. Volk, Principal
