NEW! School Portraits - Today’s school portrait day was a big success! You may continue to place online online orders for the next five days. After that, you must call O’Connor Studios at 978-640-6250.

NEW! Retake Day - If your child was absent today or you do not like the portrait taken today, O’Connor Studios will be back for Retake Day on both campuses on December 1st. More information about Retake Day will be provided as the date draws closer.



Facilities Projects - Hooray! A number of very generous donors have covered the cost of our water filler station project at the lower campus! We are MOST appreciative of these donations and our parents’ excitement about the project. Thank you, thank you! We will begin the process of having those filler stations installed ASAP!


If you were interested in supporting the water fillers, we urge you to consider supporting one of our other two current projects.  Please contact Marta at [email protected] if you would like to support either of these efforts!

Gym Audio System - If you’ve ever attended one of our many events in the gym at the upper campus….from athletic events and drama productions to masses and graduations...you know that the gym’s aging audio system is less than adequate. We are working on replacing that system so that we can hear everything loud and clear from all parts of the gym! The cost of this project is $15,000.

Science Lab Upgrade - While this project is still at an early stage, we are investigating ideas for modernizing this important space at the upper campus.  This large classroom offers many possibilities for deepening our STEM curriculum with updated lab equipment and programming to further engage student interest in the sciences. Estimated cost for this project is still under development.



UPDATED!! Extended Care Billing - Extended Care bills for September have been posted in the Family Portal and parents have been emailed a notice if they have a payment due. To pay, please log in to your Portal, look for “Financial” in the left menu, then click “Make a Payment” in the Balances box.



NEW! Upper Campus Before Care - Please note that the upper campus Before Care program runs from 6:30 to 7:30 AM. Any student who arrives at school between those hours will be charged for Before Care at the rate of $3 per half hour. Students who arrive after 7:30 AM will not be charged. Thank you!


THIS WEEK! Hot Lunch Ordering for November- Online ordering for November’s Hot Lunch through Boonli.com closes at midnight this Friday, October 15! If you did not order this month, be sure to check out the menu for November...student reviews of our new caterer are excellent! (If you are ordering for the first time, you'll need to know that our school code is stchris111.) Since we can not accommodate orders placed after midnight on the 15th, please be sure to log in early just in case you run into technical issues. Orders are not placed until you complete the entire ordering process and receive a confirmation email from Boonli. 



CYO Basketball - It looks like CYO basketball may be a go for this winter! We will confirm this news soon and send more details. 



Wrestling Coach Needed - We are looking for a coach for our upper campus (grades 6-8) wrestling program this winter! Please contact Athletic Director Ryan Farris at [email protected] for more information!



Auction Winner Volunteer Parking - Just a reminder to not park in the “Volunteer Parking” spot outside each school building at any time. Each of these spots were auctioned off as part of our Annual Auction last year and the winners have exclusive use of the space for the year. This applies both during school hours and before and after school. Thank you for your cooperatio
