Hello Falcon Family!

School Masses: families are encouraged to join us every Tuesday at 8:05AM in the church for school Mass.  We ask that families sit in the back of church and allow students to sit with their prayer families. Please and thank you! 

School-Mass Choir is open to students in grades 3-5. Rehearsals will be once a week during recess.  Please use THIS LINK to register your child.  

Falcon Flight is our afterschool tutoring program for grades 3-8 and it starts Tuesday, September 5th. Please register at your earliest convenience using the form sent home with students last week.  If you need a new form, please email Mrs. Wade.

Lunch Balances (Continued): please consider using the Auto-Replenish feature on your lunch account.  CLICK HERE for details.

Ed Choice Scholarships

  • Reminder: we are expecting every family to submit an EdChoice Application, either for Traditional EC (failing school district) or Expansion EC (income based).  If you do not apply, your tuition may be higher than you expected. Under Expansion EC, every family is eligible to receive a scholarship award.
  • Timeline
    • Allegedly, your application will be reviewed by EdChoice within 14 days and St. Chris will be notified within 14 days, if errors or deficiencies have been identified. Note: most applications contain errors or missing information, so a final approval in 14 days is rare. Once a scholarship award is finalized, an award letter and acceptance form are mailed to the parents/guardian.
    • Refunds will be processed every Tuesday with a 11 day lag. Example: refunds processed on Tuesday, August 22, must have been approved by EdChoice on or before Friday, August 11.Those who paid with a credit card will receive a refund to that same credit card.
      Those who paid by check, bank ACH or direct debit will receive a check in the mail.
  • If you need application assistance, please visit the EdChoice Website or email Mrs. Bradley.
  • EdChoice Income Verification Tips can be found at THIS LINK

Have a great weekend!
