Greetings!

Thank you to the very many people who made last Wednesday's Chinese Auction a wonderful success.  Rosa,Barbara and all those who helped them did a beautiful job creating the many baskets.  Mary Crispyn did a spectacular job decorating the Coral House.  Once again the Home and School Board outdid themselves organizing, preparing and running such an event.  Thank you for all that you do.

Friday night the Sixth Grades participated in Blue and White Night, a night of fun and friendly competition.  Thank you to Leslie Fulton and Brenda Gehring for all their help.

Now that Spring has arrived and the students will be staying outdoors in the morning, please refresh your memory of the Safety rules.  They can be found in the calendar and on the website.

Have a good week,
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".
