Dear St. Celestine School Families,

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the First Responders in our school community, both those that are parents to our students and those that serve our school community. We are very blessed to have you in our lives. This was really highlighted last week by a visit from the Elmwood Park Police Department as a check in to see how we are and if we needed anything. They mentioned appreciating the SCS community and wanting to support us in any way we need. It is further highlighted by First Responder parents who constantly offer support and a willingness to volunteer. Thank you!

Pre-registration for the 2023-2024 School Year for current families begins now. For your convenience, please pre-register online by usisng this link Keep in mind many spaces fill up quickly and we want to make sure you are part of the wonderful year ahead. Registration is completed when paperwork and the registration fee is received in the School Office.

Registration for new families begins January 29, 2023. Please mark that date on your calendar because we will have an Open House immediately after the 11 am Mass.

We also have a Technology Day event and an Early Childhood Night scheduled, so current and interested families can see everything our school has to offer. Our Early Childhood Night will be January 19 at 6:30 pm (CLICK HERE). The Technology Day will be in February, with the exact date and time being communicated in an upcoming Brown Envelope.

Lastly, I am including a Sign Up Genius link should you wish to schedule a time with me to discuss the school year, raise any questions and/or have a conversation about next year. Signing up for this is entirely optional. That said, with how busy schedules get, I did not want to miss an opportunity to meet.

With Gratitude and Blessings,

Sheila M. Klich - Principal
