Congratulations to more than 250 eighth grade students who will complete their elementary education this month at our 8 Federation Schools.  Many will be attending one of the fine Catholic high schools of our Archdiocese in the fall. Blessings on each of them and their parents and families as they begin the next chapter in their education. May they continue to be Alive in Christ!

FEDERATION FAMILY FIELD TRIP TO THE MAGIC HOUSE

TMH-logo-stacked-1clr-background

The Federation of Catholic Schools will sponsor a “Family Field Trip” to The Magic House on Monday, June 18th, 6-8pm.  Families will be invited to join us for an evening of fun and exploration at this popular local St. Louis attraction.  The entire Magic House has been reserved exclusively for Federation families to enjoy and explore together.  The cost will be only $8 per family, that’s less than the regular price for a single admission! Reservations and payment are required by June 15 and forms are available at all school and parish offices, or online at www.FederationofCatholicSchools.org/fieldtrip.

 

GROUP ATTENDS NCEA CONFERENCE AND ACCEPTS AWARD ON BEHALF OF FEDERATION

Innovations in Education Award


A group of principals, teachers and a pastor traveled to the National Catholic Education Association Conference in Boston last month to accept the Catholic Schools for Tomorrow  Innovations in Education Award from Today’s Catholic Teacher Magazine on behalf of the Federation of Catholic Schools’ Professional Learning Team (PLT) program.  The award luncheon was held on April 12 at the exclusive Harvard Club, with hundreds of Catholic educators and administrators in attendance.

“The entire week was a great experience,” said Mr. Chris Masterson, Middle School Social Studies Teacher at Sacred Heart. “It was just another example as to why the Federation has been and will continue to be a great benefit to the Catholic schools and students of North County. The opportunity to spend a week with my colleagues allowed for a growth in collegial fellowship and professional growth. The awards dinner was an exciting experience from the setting inside the Harvard Club to all the great champions of Catholic Education represented.”

 “I found the award ceremony to be particularly moving not because it was in the Harvard Club nor because we received all kinds of ‘goodies’ from the sponsors nor because of the 9 pound trophy but because I thought of the hundreds of people who have contributed to the process of forming a Federation and the thousands of hours that were expended for our children,” said Monsignor Jack Schuler, Pastor at St. Ferdinand Parish.

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION BLESSINGS

After months of preparation and prayer, hundreds of second grade students from our Federation schools and parish PSR programs have received their First Holy Communion this Spring.  We ask blessings and prayers for these children as they receive our Savior in the Eucharist for the first time.  May they inspire us all with their example of being ALIVE IN CHRIST!
