Once again there are many wonderful things happening at St. Christopher's.

On Saturday our Second Graders made their First Communion. 

On Monday the school participated in the May Crowning.

Last Friday we dedicated our Kindergarten classroom in memory of Jennie Lawrence.  Many family members shared the day with us and the Kindergarten class as we remembered many of Jennie's attributes.

Preparation for the St. Christopher Golf Outing is underway.  This is a parish activity where all the proceeds are used for the upkeep of our school.   In addition this year there will be a school raffle.  The prize will be $1,000 off School Tuition.  Information about the Golf Outing and the raffle can be found in the Tuesday packet.

Have a great 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".
