AUGUST 8, 2017
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. We welcome new dedicated teachers, and students to the St. Celestine School Family. Our enrollment is strong and we are fortunate to have great support from our families, parish, and community. We are excited to have a new floor on the second floor, new concrete outside of the Creed center, and new lighting in the gym.
The first day of school begins on Monday, August 21. It is a full day of school for all students except preschool and kindergarten. Students should come in uniform and bring a lunch with a non-carbonated, non-glass beverage. All special programs, including gym, will begin on Tuesday, August 22. Hot lunch orders for September are due no later than August 11. The hot lunch and milk programs do not begin until after Labor Day.
There is always a lot of necessary paper work to fill out in the beginning of the school year. Please make sure all emergency card information is filled out. If you need any forms please contact the office. Many of the needed items are also on our website.
This year we will be beginning an all-electronic brown envelope for everyone except for special letters for a specific classroom, lunch orders, and B/A care, progress reports those will still go home weekly by hard copy. We will begin this electronic envelope in mid-September.
If you have any questions, please contact me.
We are looking forward to a new and exciting faith-filled school year with new learning and friendships.
Mrs. Jeanine Rocchi - St. Celestine School Principal
