St. Patrick's School registering students
Registration for Pre-K and kindergarten through sixth grade is underway at St. Patrick's School. The Pre-K program is open to children ages 3 to 5 and various schedules are available. Class size is limited and this program is so popular that registration is based on first come, first serve basis. This is an academic program that concentrates on early skills to prepare a child for kindergarten.
The kindergarten through sixth grade programs offer small class sizes with individual attention, Spanish, technology, art, music, physical education and more.
All classroom teachers are New York State certified and specialize in elementary education. Students of all faiths and from throughout Madison and Oneida counties are welcome.
