Thank you to Tim Read for designing our new Saint Cecilia School mural in our multi-purpose room. We are so blessed that Tim Read shared his time and talent with our school in such a meaningful and lasting way. If you haven’t seen the mural in person, please stop by during school hours, we’d love to show it to you! Thank you again Tim! 
Family School Association Spotlight
We’d like to take a moment and tell you more about our wonderful Family School Association (FSA). Our current co-chairs are Sara Leto and Betsy Pyfferoen. Our FSA does so much for the students, parents and staff at St. Cecilia School. They plan so many special events for all of us such as Trivia Nights, Trunk-or Treat, special lunches and Catholic Schools Week and end of year activities. They also purchase a book for each student at our book fairs during conference week and so much more! Thank you FSA for all you do for St. Cecilia School, we appreciate you!

SCRIP – what is it? can it help pay tuition?
Welcome back to school!  We process Scrip orders almost every Monday morning.  Place your order online, send an email, or send a paper order form in with your child (can be found on the website or in school office) and your cards will come home with your child on Friday.

Wondering what scrip is?  SCRIP is a way for you to purchase gift cards to local and national business at full price, but the school gets to purchase those cards at a discount. The discount is the profit the school makes, and 50% of the PROFIT goes to the school and 50% goes to you the family toward school tuition or possibly to another family if you make a designation. Grandparents, Neighbors, Family etc. are welcome to participate and help you with school tuition. You can go on-line at to get more information and look at all the retailers who participate.

Something new SCRIP is offering–ON-LINE CREDIT CARD payments. To get more details about this offering go to the website listed above. You will need to register and pay on-line to use this service. We still offer Presto-Pay as well!

If you have any questions about Scrip, please contact Judy Brown or Bev Williams at
