Prayer to Begin a School Year

God of our past, our present and our future,
God of our dreams, our designs and our decisions,
Be love in us as we journey through this new school year.

Be our inner vision, that we may see life through your eyes,
Be our inner hearing, that we may listen well for your call,
Be our inner judgment, so we may discern clearly that which gives life,
Promotes growth, and nurtures love.

As we move into this school year,
fill us with hope and abiding trust that you dwell in us,
So that, in both joy and sorrow, we radiate hope.

St Paul Pray for Us




What an incredible summer at St Paul. Construction crews worked throughout the summer to complete the renovations at the school, including updating all the classroom and hallway lighting and ceilings, updating the gym, moving the main office and creating a new main entrance, and installing air conditioning. As with most construction projects, there are a few cosmetic items that have not been completed, so we will continue to see some of the crew around the school, but all work in classrooms will be completed outside of school hours. We know that everyone is anxious to see the renovations, but we would ask that parents wait until our “Meet the Teacher” night to tour the school.


Please reserve September 26, 2017 from 5:30 – 7:00 for our Meet the Teacher Night – more details will follow



To all families who picked up their 1st-day packages at Sneak Peek – thank you for making this a great success.
