Greetings!

Welcome back. I hope everyone enjoyed a happy Easter and a restful vacation.  It's hard to believe that we are beginning our third and last trimester of the 2008-2009 school year.  While everyone is working diligently to finish the year it is also a time to start planning for next year.

WE NEED YOU!
Recently you received information regarding the Nominating Committee for the Home and School Association.  This organization is so very important to our school.  It offers everyone, school and parents, an opportunity to work together for the benefit of all our students.  There are positions on the Executive board that must be filled for next year.  As of yet we do not have nominations for all the spots.  I personally would like to take this chance to tell you how very important you, the parents, are to this organization.  This is an opportunity for you to become involved.  I realize the time constraints on all of our lives and that not everyone can give the time.  However, if you are even a little bit interested or know someone who might be, please call me at 223-4404 or Linda Haab at 378-9461 to answer any questions you may have.  Remember, WE NEED YOU!

Thank you,
Mrs. Lederer

St. ChristopherSt. Christopher's Parochial School was founded in 1925 under the aegis of the Sisters of St. Joseph. Today, under the direction of a dedicated, professional Religious and lay faculty, St. Christopher's continues its tradition of excellence.

Recognizing each student as unique, we strive to develop the whole person through a spiritual, academic, physical and aesthetic education. We employ creative, innovative and practical methods in our teaching. It is our belief that we must prepare our students to be critical-thinkers, responsible, loving, service-oriented citizens in preparation for the years to come and eternity. Thus we strive to fulfill Jesus' command, "to love our neighbor as ourselves".
