Greetings!

This week the USA welcomes Pope Benedict.  The teachers will be discussing his visit with the students as well as the role of the Pope as our leader in the Catholic Church.

Our Grade 7&8 Baseball and Softball teams have begun their interschool play with other Catholic Schools in our area.  Our school track program also begins this week.

If you have not already done so, please send your completed FACTS form to the Office.  Thank you to the many families who took the time during Parent Teacher Conferences to fill them out.

Thank you for all you do,

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".
