Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools has announced the opening of St. Patrick’s Community School, for the upcoming academic year, 2023-2024. The first day of school will commence with staggered entry on August 14 and 15, 2023. All students, both new and returning, will unite on August 16.

The year-round school is designed to provide students with an innovative approach to learning, so students will have more frequent breaks, which will enhance their retention and ensure a seamless continuation of their education.

Staggered Entry Days:

August 14 and 15, 2023, have been assigned as staggered entry days to allow a smooth transition for students, parents, and staff. This approach allows teachers to provide personalized attention to each student and ensures that students become familiar with their new learning environments before the entire school comes together on August 16.

Meet the Staff Night:

On August 16, 2023, the school will host a "Meet the Staff" evening, where students and their families will have the opportunity to get acquainted with staff members.
