Core Virtue of the Month:  Respect & Responsibility

Respect is:

  • Treating others politely and kindly
  • Treating others with high regard

Responsibility is:

  • Being responsible
  • Being trustworthy & accountable

This year the SPLS Staff will be praying specifically for our students and their families.  Each week we will draw the names of two students from a prayer box and pray for them over the course of the next week.  This week we will be praying for the following students: Eva (PS 4am) and Cruz (K).

Scholastic Book Fair September 24-28

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 classrooms.  There are several shifts available in the mornings at 11:15 or 11:45 and in the afternoons at 2:45 or 3:15.

To sign up contact Mrs. Stephan in the school office at or

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 & Preschool
  • Yelp – St. Philip Lutheran School – Dublin, CA

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

Do you have some free time on your hands? Do you need Parent Participation hours? We are looking for a few parents to be part of the St. Philip Technology Team. If you are interested please speak to Principal Zinnel or email him at

Would you like to be involved with what is happening at the school? We are looking for parents who might be interested in being on the School Board. The School Board meets once a month on the second Tuesday at 7 pm. If you are interested please contact Principal Zinnel or Mrs. Stephan in the school office.

The 1st quarter chapel money will be donated to Lutheran World Relief. This organization helps people who have been affected by disasters and also people in poor areas to get out of poverty.  Our offerings could help buy playground balls for children in refugee camps, or buy people seedlings to become coffee farmers, or buy farmers cocoa seedlings to grow chocolate.
