Blessing of the School

Today, Father Harry blessed the school and students as they prepare for their new year!

Change to lower lot procedures

Please reveiw the map below for lower lot dismissal. Due to our growing number of families, we need to make a slight adjustment. Please be patient as you enter the lot and lineup in the order outlined below. The red line will be the first group of cars, blue line the second group and so on.

The red and blue lines will start lining up on the ramp, continue around the parking lot, and ending at the end of the median. The green, orange, purple, yellow lines will line up like they had in the past. The goal is to release the red line first, blue line second, and yellow line third up the ramp. The green line will follow the yellow line up the ramp while the purple and orange lines release out of the entrance.

1st: Red

2nd: Blue

3rd: Green

4th: Orange

5th: Purple

6th: Yellow

Sports Updates


Sports Volunteer Opportunities! Work concessions, admission, clean up, scorers table!

STC Volleyball League has now started and volunteers are needed! Please click the link below to sign up! Remember, sports families need to complete 2 hours of volunteer hours before the end of the current school year. Volunteers are a must for a league to run successfully.


Basketball Registration is now open!

Registration is now open to all students in grades 1-8 for St. Cecilia basketball! The season length will vary based on grade level and team placement (most seasons start as late as after Thanksgiving some as early as the beginning of November) but practices will begin in October. Teams will have one scheduled practice a week to go along with one game a week. Most leagues will schedule between 8-10 games and play a season ending tournament.

We are also looking for parent volunteers to coach or assist as well. Please indicate your willingness to do so when registering your child. As a reminder all parent volunteers must be VIRTUS compliant. This is the perfect way to satisfy your parental service hour requirement!

Initial entry fee is $100 per player. Due to several of the leagues we play in deciding to raise the team entry fee and eliminating charging admission IF your child's team will be playing in one of these leagues there will be an additional $25 fee to offset the higher league fee. Based on most leagues charging $3-$5 per game this will actually be less paid out as opposed to paying admission to each game. Teams playing in leagues that charge admission will not be charged the extra fee.

Registration ends Sept. 8th. To register please go to and sign into your account. New families will need to sign up for a new account at the same link.

Also as an invitation to our new families as well as a reminder to our existing families there are plenty of opportunities to get involved with our St. Cecilia Sports Committee! We encourage you to come to a meeting and help if you can!

Teams are based on your child's current grade level for the 2023-2024 school year, if for some reason during the registration process they aren't able to register for the correct grade level, please let us know and we'll get it corrected!!

Please contact Josh Whisman at with any questions.
