October 7, 2020

Thank You! Thank you to the Barry family for their donation of disinfectant cleaning supplies! We use a wide variety of products across our two campuses every day in order to keep our students and staff safe, and we appreciate the additional supplies!

Upcoming NO School Days and Early Releases  -- Don’t forget that our October calendar has several upcoming No School Days! 

October 12 - This is a No School Day in commemoration of Columbus Day.

Early Release Day Change - Our October calendar also lists an Early Release Day for October 9….please note that this has been changed to October 16 to accommodate the availability of instructors for important faculty professional development. Both campuses will be released at 12:00 PM. No lunch will be served at either campus and there will be no After Care on the 16th.

 

THIS WEEK! October 9th Hot Lunch -- Since we are moving our Early Release day from October 9 to October 16, Only Catering has kindly agreed to move our Hot Lunch for the day also. Therefore, if you ordered delicious Mac and Cheese for your student on the 16th, he or she will now receive it on the 9th! And, of course, there will be no Hot Lunch service on the 16th.

 

Hot Lunch Ordering -- Hard to believe, but ordering for November’s Hot Lunch is now open on Boonli.com! Please be sure to place your order by midnight on October 15. We can not accept any late orders!

 

NEW! Halloween Free Dress – Friday, October 30 will be a booooo-tiful day on both campuses as our kids dress in their favorite orange, black, and white Free Dress outfits! Please keep our Free Dress rules in mind when picking out an outfit:

  • No tanks tops (boys and girls), spaghetti straps, tube tops or halter tops, sheer tops;
  • No t-shirts/shirts/shorts or articles of clothing that display rock groups, violence, or inappropriate sayings;
  • No large baggy pants or bike shorts;
  • No shorts, skirts, skorts that are more than 2 inches above the knee;
  • Leggings and yoga pants may be worn, but only if a shirt is worn over top that covers the student’s bottom.

NEW! Applications Open for New Students in 2021-2022 -  Registrations are now OPEN for NEW students for next year, from PreK 3 through grade 8. If you have a younger child who you would like to join us next year, please visit the front page of the school website at SaintChrisAcademy.org and click the Apply Now button to get started! Please also pass the word to any new families who would like to join our school community in 2021-2022!

NEXT WEEK! School Portrait Day -- Picture Day is right around the corner on Wednesday, October 14th!  Students should wear their regular school uniforms. Upper campus students should wear their oxford shirts (including ties for boys) as they did for Mass this week. 

Remote Learners  Remote learners from both campuses are welcome to come to the St. Christopher  Parish Church Hall from 8AM - 9AM on October 14th to have their portraits taken as well. (We will begin taking photos of our in-school learners at the lower campus at 9 AM.)  We apologize for the inconvenience, but ask our remote learner families to park in the neighborhood and walk to the Church Hall entrance on Cushing Avenue. This is a very busy time of day!  Faculty members need to park on Cushing Avenue, and both the school and church parking lots will be in use for drop off and Eucharistic Adoration.  Thanks so much for your cooperation!

 

Retake Day  We still do not know the date for Retake Day, but will let you know as soon as it is scheduled by Lifetouch.  

 

Online Ordering Picture Day forms are being sent home today with every student. You can also download the flyer HERE. Lifetouch encourages families to order ahead online to make Picture Day even easier. To do so, please click HERE and you will be directed to Saint Christopher Academy’s ordering page.   *Our school’s Picture Day ID: EVT39DKBF

Special Gift Families who purchase a photo package online will receive $30 to spend plus a free 8”x8”  photo book from Shutterfly!

 

Attendance Email -- Don’t forget that if your child will be absent for the day, you must email the lower campus at attendance.lower@saintchrisacademy.org or the upper campus at attendance.upper@saintchrisacademy.org. Please include the reason for your child’s absence. You will receive a call from one of the school nurses to confirm your child’s absence.

NEW! Happy Hearts Day Care - Happy Hearts Day Care, located at 12 Cushing Ave, will have two openings, starting October 1, for before and after care. The hours are 6:30 to 8:30 AM and 3:00 to 5:30 PM. We accommodate on snow days, two hour delays, early release, no school days (except for the major holidays) and even if there is a power outage :) We also provide care on the Christmas, February and April vacation weeks. If interested, please call...880-6575.

 

NEW! Basketball Camps - Westwood Park YMCA (formerly Nashua Sports Academy) on Northwest Boulevard here in Nashua is offering some preseason basketball camps for elementary (grades 3-5), and middle school students (grades 6-8). These camps are open to anybody, and they will be run by Saint Christopher Upper Campus varsity basketball coaches Paul Williams and Dave Hogan. This would be a great way for some of the many basketball players in the school to get back on the court, and meet with the middle school varsity coaches before the season starts.
