by The Editors on January 25, 2017

St. Patrick Catholic School, a 51 year-old parochial school in Carlsbad, will be holding a Grand Opening Celebration and Open House this weekend, January 28-29, 2017. Both events are open to the public and will provide the local community with an inside look of the newly rebuilt and remodeled 17,000 sq-foot school.

On Saturday from 11 am until 3 pm, there will be a ribbon cutting ceremony, facility tours and a celebration party where the public can meet and greet with members of the school community. Food and beverages will be provided.

On Sunday from 10 am until 12 pm, there will be an open house providing a closer look of the school. Each of the classrooms can be visited, providing an opportunity for parents to gain an in depth understanding of daily curriculum and meet teachers one on one.

“It is a very exciting time for our school community, as we have reached a major milestone in the completion of our rebuild and remodel project,” said Principal Denise Nelson. “The heart and core of our school community remains, but now has a beautiful facility to match it. We are very blessed to have a thriving school that not only excels academically, but also remains focused on ‘being the light’.”
