Welcome to St. Paul School in Valley Cottage, New York. 

Our school is in the Catholic School Region of Rockland County in the Archdiocese of New York. We are an AdvancED accredited, co-educational, Catholic school that educates students from preschool through eighth grade. For over 50 years, our active Catholic school community has been guiding students on their journey to maturity, intellectual independence, and spiritual fulfillment.

On September 10th, the family and friends of Christopher Cardinuto are coming together to celebrate Christopher's life and to raise funds to benefit the Maria Fareri Children's Hospital Neurology Department.
Christopher was an alumni of Saint Paul School and the son of our first grade teacher, Donna Cardinuto.

Dear Saint Paul School Families,

I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness Jeremiah 31:3. At Saint Paul School, the teachers, students and parents do everything with great love and last week was no exception. Although, it was a very busy week, we had a fabulous field day. Thank you Mrs. Mazur, Mrs. Ucker and all the parents for their hard work and dedication. The children had a magnificent time and the weather was picture perfect.

On Tuesday, Show Biz put on their third performance of Into The Woods. The cast was just stellar; they are a very talented group of students.   A special thank you to Mrs. Hillis and Mrs. Lancellotti for their time, creativity and teaching the students that hard work and perseverance pays off.

On Wednesday, we had a BMX assembly. The focus was on Bike Safety and ways to be a Bully Free school. Ask your child about what the three Rs stand for in a bullying situation.

We concluded our week with a beautiful May Crowning. These are just a few of the examples of love that we have for school.

Pre-Schoolers and kindergarteners are preparing for the end-of-year celebration. Grades 1-7 are continuing with their curriculum studies and beginning to take some exams as we want to make sure we use every valuable minute of the school year.

In a few short weeks, the 7th grade becomes the leaders of the school as the 8th grade moves on. Their first role in this new capacity is to prepare a farewell Mass for Sr. Stephen on June 21. All are welcome to attend. More information will follow.

The 8th graders are in the middle of exams. They are getting ready to, “Go make a difference in the world!”


Please congratulate the class of 2016

Please make sure to send in your reregistration fee, as soon as possible. We can accept checks made payable to SMART. It is imperative to reregister to ensure we have the proper materials ordered for next year.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Let us remember all those who fought and died for our freedom. We thank all those serving in the armed forces, the police and the fire personnel for their dedication to our country.

God Bless,

Sr. Stephen and Mrs. Pitot
