FINE ARTS AWARDS NIGHT

Thank you to all that attended our first ever Saint Patrick Fine Arts Awards Night. All of the fine arts faculty are very proud of your accomplishments and contributions to Saint Pat's. I had a great time and hope you did as well. If you have any questions about the awards that I distributed, drop me an email at: kcarroll@stpatrick.org.

One of the most rewarding things for me was assembling the video with our video expert Pat Duggan. I was very happy as to how it turned out. The songs that we used were (in order): Vertigo (U2), I'll Be (Dan Darrah), and Live Out Loud (Steven Curtis Chapman). Dan is my very talented cousin. Check out more of his music at www.dandarrah.com. His is similar in style to Jack Johnson, John Mayer, and Dave Matthews.

RUMORS

By now many of you may have heard that the Saint Patrick band director job was available for next school year. Indeed, I was exploring other job possibilities and have been honest about my intentions with the students. I explained to them that I was basically a "free agent." Saint Patrick offered me a contract but I chose to hold off signing until I had explored these possibilities. When a contract is not returned, it is the Saint Patrick policy to then advertise the position as being open (that kind of freaked some of the students out).

Anyway, as of this morning, I have signed my contract and intend on returning for the 2008-09 school year. I am sorry if this caused any anxiety or frustration for anyone. If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to call or email.

-Mr. Carroll
