January 2023

Dear Crusader Families,

Happy Open House Weekend! The students and staff are excited for all of the fun activities and themes we will be focusing on during Catholic Schools Week next week.

Open House marks the start of the 2023-2024 school registration period.

We are excited to share that all registration paperwork will be completed online this year!

If you have multiple children, once you input the information for one child, it will be saved for all additional children.

After you complete the re-enrollment for your child that currently attends school, if you have an incoming new student, you will be able to Add a New Student after you complete the re-enrollment forms.

The Participating Parishioner form and Tuition Agreement are within the re-enrollment paperwork online. You do not need to fill out those forms separately.

After all forms are complete, it will prompt you to click the links to pay the $100 Registration Fee and $60 Student Activity Fee.

To re-enroll, you will login to your Gradelink Parent account. On the left hand side of the screen, there will be a button that says Reenroll. Please click on that button and complete all forms.

Once the school receives the completed forms and payment, your family will receive an email to notify that you are accepted for the 2023-2024 school year.

If you need help with your Gradelink login, please contact the school office, and Mrs. Boland will email you the information.

For new families: Please click on the link below and it will prompt you to create an account to register your child.

As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
