Attention PK-1st Grade Parents!  Are you interested in learning more about the Children’s Liturgy of the Word?  As part of Catholic Schools Week, you are invited to join your children on January 28 during the 9:30 mass for a Children’s Liturgy of the Word “Open House.”  One of the parent volunteers will lead the session and will be available to answer questions afterward.  Please contact Lourdes Ryczek (StEdwardReligiousEd@gmail.com) or Fr. Dom at FatherDominicClemente@gmail.com with any questions.

It is time for pre-registration for the 2018-2019 school year. Pre-registration enrollment figures are used as a baseline to estimate enrollment for the next school year and are an essential first step in the school’s budgeting process. This process is used to determine staffing needs and the tuition rates we set each year and therefore impacts every family with children at St. Edward School. We are asking for your help with this process. If you know you are coming back to St. Edward School next year; please pre-register before Wednesday, January 24th.   Forms are attached below.
