Dear St. Celestine School Parents and Guardians,

We are grateful for so much!

Thank you Parents Club for the amazing Teacher appreciation week!

Thank you families for the amazing Boosterthon Fundraiser. Our program benefits from your generosity!

Thank you Class of 2022 for the amazing redecoration of the Teachers Lounge! The teachers love it!

St. Celestine School continues to have a number of events and activities that should be on your calendar.

  • May 12 is the May Crowning / Ribbon Ceremony for our 8th graders. They will have their graduation dinner dance in the evening.
  • May 13 is the Trivia Night fundraiser for Athletics. Book a table now! It is the first Athletics fundraiser since before the pandemic.
  • May 15 is the May Crowning after the 11 am Mass. An Ice Cream Social follows this beautiful parish event.
  • May 16 is a Lockdown Drill being practiced with the Elmwood Park Police Department. Students and teachers need to practice one more before the end of the school year.
  • May 22 is our Flag ceremony with Scouts. After the 11 am Mass, our Scouts will come to the front of the school and change the flag. Our current flag has seen better days and has needed to be replaced for a long time. Out of respect to the flag and the desire to reinforce the importance of the flag to our Scouts, we are organizing this ceremony with them. We wanted to do this in a way that the most students could participate after a Mass and this was the best way.

St. Celestine School continues to work with Catapult to plan Reading and Math tutoring for students. While a number of teachers and aides have registered for tutoring positions, there is an opportunity for additional tutors. This is a paid opportunity being offered in the morning from June 13 through July 14. Please contact me at sklich@stcelestineschool.org if you are interested in learning more about being a tutor and / or if you have questions.

Thankfully,

Sheila M. Klich - Principal

Dear St. Celestine School Parents and Guardians,

Tomorrow is the BIG DAY! We are so excited for our Boosterthon Fun Run! Please come and cheer on our students, if you are able. Please don’t forget to donate!

In terms of parking, there will be no parking in the parking lot if we run outside. Also, there is a funeral at 10 am, so parking on 76th Ct will not be available. Watch for an email about where we will run based on what happens with the weather.

We also have a few exciting events soon.

  • May 7 is First Holy Communion for our Second Grade students.
  • May 12 is the May Crowning / Ribbon Ceremony for our 8th graders. They will have their graduation dinner dance in the evening.
  • May 13 is the Trivia Night fundraiser for Athletics. Book a table now! It is the first Athletics fundraiser since before the pandemic.
  • May 15 is the May Crowning after the 11 am Mass. An Ice Cream Social follows this beautiful parish event.
  • May 22 is our Flag ceremony with Scouts. After the 11 am Mass, our Scouts will come to the front of the school and change the flag. Our current flag has seen better days and has needed to be replaced for a long time. Out of respect to the flag and the desire to reinforce the importance of the flag to our Scouts, we are setting this ceremony with them. We wanted to do this in a way that the most students could participate after a Mass and this was the best way.

If you have not yet registered, please do so. Many classes are filling quickly and we do not want to place current families on waiting lists. If you have completed registration, but have not yet sent the registration fee, please do so as soon as possible. Lastly, tuition assistance is being determined based on families who have registered and filed FACTS applications.

If you have registered and are set for the 2022-2023 school year, please be sure that you have set up your 2022-2023 account in FACTS for tuition payment.

Thankfully,

Sheila M. Klich - Principal
