Kindergarten at St. Patrick School
Kindergarten is an exciting grade at St. Patrick School! Kindergarteners have the unique experience of being the leaders of their group, because they are the oldest group of students in the ELC! Students have the unique opportunity to help guide and lead the younger students in proper moral and academic behaviors.
