Lower Campus Parent-Teacher Conferences - Parent-teacher conferences at the lower campus are scheduled for Thursday, November 17 from 4:00 - 8:00 PM. Conference sign-up's were done in most classrooms on Parent Open House night in September. If not, you will hear from your teacher shortly. At least one parent/guardian must meet with each child's homeroom teacher at the lower campus at this time.
Upper Campus Parent-Teacher Conferences - Upper campus parent-teacher conferences will take on a new format this year! On Wednesday, November 16, from 4:00 - 7:00 PM, faculty will be stationed throughout the gymnasium and cafeteria and will welcome parents for short conferences on a first-come, first-served basis. Parents are encouraged to review their student's schedule and prioritize meeting with teachers whose class is challenging a student most. Parents are not required to attend or to speak with all of a student's teachers.
NEW! Project PE! Mrs. Beauregard wants to know what PE means to you. All lower campus students are invited to use HALF an 8.5” x 11” sheet of paper and draw what you enjoy about PE at Saint Chris. These will be hung on the PE bulletin board near the front desk at school. Please send these in by Thursday November 10th to the front desk.
NEW! Lower Campus Spanish - We are excited to announce that Mrs. Sadie Presenti, a current parent, has stepped forward to teach Spanish part-time at the lower campus.

Lower Campus Library News - It's Birthday Book time! Your lower campus student should have brought a flyer home with more information on the birthday book program. It is a great way to commemorate their birthday and will be shared with others for many years to come! Books typically cost between $11-$16 and are library bound. If you have more than one student, please consider ordering books for all of them at once. Books are taking a very long time to come in, so ordering sooner than later is appreciated. You can find more information HERE. If you have any questions please email Mrs. Noon at [email protected]. Happy Reading!
