THANK YOU!  We are a little late on this thank you, but we wanted to extend our appreciation to the many, many Hot Lunch volunteers this year on both campuses! With their help, we served a whopping 39,111 meals to Saint Chris students this school year….wowza! Our students, staff, and parents thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

We also extend a huge thank you to Mary and Jeff Woodward and their merry band of volunteers for the amazing school-wide BBQ last Friday! Although we had to make some last minute changes thanks to the uncertain weather, this group’s flexibility and enthusiasm were incredible! Thank you for bringing back the BBQ for all to enjoy!

NEXT WEEK! Upper Campus Canobie Lake Field Trip - On Wednesday, June 15, all upper campus students will be participating in a field trip to Canobie Lake Park! Please note the following information:

  • Students will arrive at their regular school time. Students and the teacher chaperones will ride on school buses to and from the park. Buses will depart SCA – Upper Campus at 9:00 am and return at approximately 5:15 pm to the school for parent pick up.


  • Students will be choosing their groups at lunch before the trip. We are aiming for groups of 6.


  • Students may pack a lunch and/or snacks to bring with them for the park or money to make a purchase. No glass or reusable water bottles, please. There will be no eating on the bus either direction.


  • Students should wear their gym uniform for the field trip.


  • The cost for the students, including the park admission and bus, is $40.  Payments for the trip will be billed through incidental billing in your FACTS account.


  • The parent chaperones will be driving to the park and their cost is $30. Chaperone billing will also be done through incidental billing in your FACTS account.  Please complete the chaperone portion of the permission form and if you have not already done so, email Mrs. Sue Coker stating that you would like to be a chaperone on June 15. Chaperones should meet the buses at the park at 9:30 am. I will send the parent chaperones, who signed up, a separate email as the time gets closer.


  • The Permission Form HERE must be signed and returned by June 3 so we may process all of the paperwork. There are printed copies in the office, if you need one. If your child is not able to attend, please send a note or email Mrs. Coker to the email below. 


  • Students who use an epi pen or inhaler need to have them on their person while they are at the park. Please carry them in a small backpack. If Ms. Kuefler, our nurse, usually keeps their epi pen or inhaler in her office for them, they may pick it up from her that morning.
