A Message from your Principal



As I begin my first year here at St. Patrick’s School in Mauston, I look forward to working with Father John, the staff and parents to give our students a positive learning environment.

This is my fourth parish school with the last being in Algoma, Wisconsin. I grew up on a farm in the Richland County area. My background includes public, parochial, rural and urban schools. I believe all students can achieve when we as adults provide a supportive system in a Catholic environment.

St. Patrick’s School provides a unique experience where teachers set high expectations along with teaching the importance of having Jesus in their lives. Every week, the students participate in the celebration of the Eucharistic Liturgy. Daily prayer and seasonal prayer services enhance the growth of the children.

Parents work with the school as volunteers on the Home and School Association. The parishioners of St. Patrick’s maintain a strong commitment to helping the school flourish. The parents and parishioners of St. Patrick’s believe in the presence of a parish school as vital to all of the parish.

Please consider St. Patrick’s School if you are looking into educational choices for your child.

Linda Layer, Principal
