Vocation Day 2010 "You Make a World of Difference" is scheduled for Tuesday, April 20th.  The Faith Outreach group invites you to share in this special day as we invite priests, sisters and lay religious to talk to the children about their chosen vocation and how they are making a difference.   Please consider joining us for all or part of the day.  Volunteers are especially needed for the afternoon activities. Look for Volunteer Forms in on the Documents/Forms page of the website.


We're on Facebook! Become a fan of St. Christopher School on Facebook! Win a free picnic blanket! Check us out HERE!

We're so excited about the opportunities Facebook provides for extending our interaction with friends, families, and alumni! New and prospective parents, too, can benefit from the Facebook page and check out the "community vibe"! We're just getting started, but look for upcoming "inside our day" posts, events, contests and more. Parents are invited to comment on school notes and post reviews of the school under the "Reviews" tab.

As on the website, we will be posting children's pictures, but we will not be including any names in relations to those pictures (those who denied website permission on the photography permission form at the beginning of school will not appear at all). We want to keep our children as safe as possible while still showing some of the fun and learning that goes on every day here at St. Chris!

(By the way, we hope that we DON'T see any of our current students as fans of our page! The legal age requirement for a Facebook page is 13...and none of our students are quite that old. Once they graduate, we'd love to hear from them...but not yet!)

Finally, we're running a great contest for all our our friends, families, and alumni....become a FAN of St. Christopher Schoool by Friday, April 23 and you'll be entered in a chance to win a FREE St. Chris embroidered picnic blanket. These blankets are awesome for summer picnics or watching soccer games on the field. We will notify the winner on the morning of April 23, so become a fan...and good luck!

Reminder about Morning Drop-Off Time – In the interest of the safety of your children, we ask that parents refrain from dropping students off at school prior to 8:30 AM.  There is no outside supervision for your children until 8:30 AM, and school does not officially start until 8:50 AM.  If earlier drop-off is needed, we do have Before School Care between 7:00 and 8:30 AM in Mrs. Walley’s classroom.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Mother’s Day Flowers – The Parent Group invites you to treat your mother to a special treat for Mother’s Day…Kolanchoe Plants! These beautiful, easy care plants will brighten your mom’s day and many weeks after! Order forms will go home this week and be posted on the website Here. Please order by next Friday, April 23. Cost is $18 per plant.

Drama Thank You’s – Drama Club Director Kathy Moraros would like to thank a few additional individuals for their outstanding contribution to the production of Alice in Wonderland Jr., last week: Alyssa Dobens, costume assistant; Paula Dobens, makeup and hair; Suzanne Dee, back stage; and Jane Hussey, back stage. Thanks to everyone!

2nd Annual Walk Run – We have great plans for this year’s 2nd Annual Walk-Run, to be held at Sargent Ave Park on May 28 from 1:00 p.m – 2:30 p.m.! Like last year, all students will receive an official runner’s “number” and will be professionally timed. During the Walk-Run, local groups and businesses will be holding a Health Fair with free information on healthy living.

One of our goals for this year is to provide a free race t-shirt for every student – and we’re still looking for a few sponsors to help us make that happen. Would you or your business be willing to help? All sponsors over $100 will be listed on the t-shirts and donations of over $250 will be recognized with a logo on the t-shirts. If you would like to help out, please send your donation to Marta at the school. Thanks!

Spring Concerts – Mark your calendar for the upcoming Spring concerts by our talented students! Grades PreK to 3 will take place on Tuesday, May 25 at 10:00 a.m. Grades 4-6 will take place on Thursday, May 27 at 10:00 a.m. Both will take place in the Church.
