  3. Wow....what an exciting week here at St. Philip. Everyone has been so patient and it has been great to see so many volunteers here making our dream a reality. Thank you to the wonderful students and staff of St. Philip for your patience and for enduring so many indoor recess breaks because of the build. Many hands make light work is a motto that is truly coming true at St. Philip. I look forward to all of you playing on the new Falcon Park Playground next week and I myself look forward to trying the new curly slide!!
