History St Patrick Elementary

St. Patrick School, established in 1893, was located in a well established neighborhood on the Northwest side of Cedar Rapids. It was located just behind St. Patrick Catholic Church at 510 1st Ave NW. In October 189, as soon as the new stone church could be used for Mass, the original wood frame St Patrick's church was moved from 2nd Avenue and seventh Street SW behind the new church.

On March 13, 1929, ground was broken for the new present day school. The 1929 - 1930 was the first class in the new school. Construction was completed in eight months. In early 1960's there were 1200 K-12 students. St. patrick's was the largest parochial school in Iowa and busting at the seams.

In Mat of 1962, 400 students bade farewell to St. Patrick's to become pioneer students as St Jude's. During this period many students enrolled at Roosevelt Junior High School and went on to be part of the Class of 1966 at Jefferson.
