We would like to make you aware of some safety upgrades.

First, PTO has helped with the purchase of Bolo Sticks for every room in the school. Bolo Sticks provide a means to bolt the doors closed in case of a school threat.

We have now upgraded our security cameras and have a total of 22 cameras that view various areas of our school and campus. We are working to increase that number.

Please be sure to join PTO and support their efforts as they help with these important safety and security upgrades.

During the sports banquet, we put together a slide show of student pictures during sporting events. This includes all years they have played at St. Cecilia. Send pictures to Stephanie Rabius at

St. Cecilia Spring Soccer pictures provided by Lifetouch will take place on Thursday, May 4th 2023. Please reference the 2023 Spring Soccer Picture Schedule below.

Pictures will be taken in the school gym. All players and coaches will wait in the lobby until they are called into the gym for their team or individual pictures. Players should wear their uniforms but should NOT wear their cleats as the cleats can scratch the gym floor.
