Core Virtue of the Month: “Respect and Responsibility”

Responsibility is doing your part for the groups that make us whole

 From the Principal: How safe is your child? Health and safety factors are of major importance to all parents and teachers. All of us want the assurance that our children are protected and in a safe environment. Here are some of the steps we take at St. Philip to insure your child’s safety:

  •  Monthly fire drills are conducted as well as regular earthquake drills
  •  Fire extinguishers are inspected regularly
  •  First aid kits and emergency backpacks are in each classroom
  •  Fully equipped earthquake kits for the entire facility are in place and include medical supplies, food, water, blankets, port-a-potties, etc.
  •  Emergency procedures including a “lock-down” procedure in place for students and teachers. These drills are scheduled and conducted on a regular basis.
  •  Entire staff is CPR and First Aid certified
  •  Recess supervision by staff at all times
  •  Gates that allow our campus to be a “locked” campus during operating hours

Thank you: We are proud of our wonderful school! We would absolutely love it if you would let the online world know about us on one of the following sites:

 The school’s Facebook site: St. Philip School and Preschool 

Yelp – St. Philip Lutheran School – Dublin, CA 

Thank you for helping us “grow” in this community!

Cardinal Question of the Day: What information is on the school’s marque for September 15? Students, give your answer to Mr. Zinnel by the end of school on Monday for a prize.

Attendance Awareness Campaign: During the month of September we will be monitoring both absences and tardiness. Please remember, school starts at 8:30. Any student who arrives after 8:30 is considered tardy. Let’s try to get to school on time!

Wild West Book Fair…Saddle Up and Read! September 25-29

The book fair benefits every classroom with new books!

There are two ways you can shop:

Do you have out-of-town family and friends who want to shop the Book Fair? Send them to: You can even go the website to create and send a wish list for loved ones to shop. Books that are not available at our fair can be found online and shipped to you or anyone else in the US.

Come by the school library September 25-29 from 8:00-10:00 and 2:00-4:00. Our goal is $2,100 in book sales. Last year we earned over $800 in Scholastic Dollars which we used to buy new books for our library. Let’s earn more this year!

We are looking for volunteers to assist with this event. This is a perfect way to earn PPP (Parent Participation Program) hours and help SPLS earn books for the library and classrooms.
