Coach retires after 39 years. We will miss him!

It is with sad hearts that we announce that our beloved Coach Art Fernandez has announced his retirement effective June 30, 2021. Coach Fernandez has been at SPS for 39 years. He has been an amazing PE teacher, coach, role model, colleague, and friend. Those of you that know him, know that he shies away from the limelight. As a parting gift, he has requested that we create the “Art Fernandez Endowment Fund” which will provide scholarship assistance to low-income families that wish to give their child/children a Catholic education.  To quote Coach, “Nothing would give me more joy than knowing that in a small way I am giving some children the opportunity to attend SPS”. Should anyone wish to donate to this endowment fund, you may send a check payable to St. Patrick Catholic School and note on check for “Art Fernandez Endowment Fund”.  Donations can be mailed to St. Patrick Catholic School 3700 Garden Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33140.
