Saint Patrick School features weekly music classes for all students K-8.

Our school offers a band option for students in grades 4-8. Student lessons and band are held during the school day and the band performs at our Christmas and Spring Fine Arts Night. Choir is offered to students in grades 4-8. The choir sings at the school masses and meets one day a week after school. Choir members may also choose to learn to cantor at mass.
Triple Trio is a small singing group open to 7th and 8th grade students. They focus on learning to sing 2 part and 3 part harmony. Triple Trio meets Wednesdays for a short time at the end of the lunch period.
Students in grades 6-8 may choose to participate in our drama club which performs a spring play, usually a musical. Rehearsals are usually 2 or 3 evenings a week during the few months leading up to our performance.
Our school hosts five feature programs throughout the school year, too. All students K-8 particpate in our Veteran's Day and Christmas programs.
