Girls On The Run

Registration is now open for Girls on the Run!!! Girls on the Run is a transformational, physical activity based, positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. The program will run from March 11th until June 1st. Practices will be held at St Vincent on Tuesdays from 3:30-5:15. Please visit girlsontherunutah.org for more information and to register.

We are looking for volunteers to help with practice. Please contact Alli Gardner if you are interested at allimgardner@gmail.com.

Saint Vincent de Paul Parish School Open House

Our Open House will be Sunday January 27th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Please encourage neighbors, friends, co-workers, and families to come to see why Saint Vincent School is so GREAT!

The number one reason why new families come to our school is word of mouth from parents like you! At Saint Vincent de Paul Parish School we have a parent referral program for grades Kindergarten through 8th grade. This program rewards those who assist in bringing new students to our school. Qualifying referrals are rewarded with a $500 credit off next year’s tuition.

The newly renovated and expanded Nano Nagle Children’s Center (Infant through 3 year olds) will also be open for tours during this time.

Conversations With Louise Best

This fall, we were fortunate to have the opportunity to sit down with our school’s founding teacher, Louise Best, and talk with her about how St. Vincent School was started. These conversations with Mrs. Best resulted in four videos that we have made available on our school website. Look for our Conversations with Louise Best link under Featured Events on the home page. We are so blessed to have these treasured stories shared by Mrs. Best, so please check them out on our School History Page.

Catholic Schools Week will be January 26 through February 2, 2018.
