Thank you for your many positive comments about the newsletter.  We are very happy with the success of reaching so many families.

Last weekend was a very busy one at St. Christopher's.  We were wonderfully entertained by the Drama Club with their performances of High School Musical.  On Sunday, a rather chilly windy day, our Eighth Graders worked very hard to raise money for their Graduation Dance by washing numerous parishioners' cars.  Thank you to everyone who supported both these endeavors.

Parent Teacher Conferences will take place on Thursday and Friday of this week.  Your scheduled time for conferences was sent home with the youngest child in the family last week.

Have a good week,

Mrs. Lederer

High School Musical 

St. Christopher's Drama Club put on their production of High School Musical this past weekend.  They performed to sold out audiences both Friday and Saturday nights.  From the first note of the show to the finale the show was energetic, exciting and transformed St. Christopher's into the fictional East High.  The audience even got involved when some of the youngest audience members were brought up to dance and sing along with our wildcat mascots. 

8th Grade Car Wash 
A Huge Success!

8th Grade Car WashThis Sunday we had the 8th grade car wash.  The weather was cloudy and  cold but we all had a good time.  There was a line of cars to be  washed and we had a hard time keeping up with crowd.  For the most  part we were able to stay dry.

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".
