Don't forget to bring your order forms for School Picture Day tomorrow at the Edina Campus! You can order pictures ahead of time by visiting the LifeTouch website. All students are asked to wear their school uniforms for school pictures. Seniors, please be sure to have your picture taken, even if you are not purchasing pictures. Your photo will be used to make a student ID for you.
Registration is open for our winter sports: boys' and girls' basketball. Sign up online to secure your student's spot. The deadline for registration is tomorrow, October 12. Go Knights of the Holy Ghost!
Fall Ball is on Saturday, October 13, from 6:00-10:00PM at the Edina Campus. Organized by the senior class, this year's theme is Fairytale Classics. Students are welcome to dress in costume, but please keep the out-of-uniform policy in mind. Tickets area now on sale during lunch, $5 pre-sale and $7 at the door.
Spread the word to families and friends! Prospective parents and students are invited to attend an Open House at our St. Paul Campus. They'll meet our faculty, learn about our curriculum, and explore our sports and other student activities.
There will be no school Wednesday, October 17 to Friday, October 19. Classes resume on Monday, October 22. Enjoy the long weekend!
Don't forget to turn in your permission slips! All Chesterton Academy sophomores will be going on retreat with Pro Ecclesia Sancta November 2-4. Contact the school office with any questions.
Can you please donate 2.5 hours to Chesterton Academy on Tuesdays between noon and 2:30pm at our St. Paul Campus? We are in need of a parent (or grandparent!) volunteer on Tuesdays to supervise students. Edina Campus families are encouraged to help! This volunteer position helps Chesterton Academy keep tuition down while still providing a high level of education. Please sign up through SignUpGenius if you are available! Help is needed beginning October 16, 2018.
Chesterton Academy students will again travel to Washington, D.C. with the archdiocese for the 40th Annual March for Life, January 15-20. All students and their families are welcome to join! In addition to the national rally, we will attend the Students for Life conference. Download the form online and return it to the school office with your payment. Deadline for registration is October 15.
On Tuesday, October 16th, the beer-brewing Benedictine monks of Norcia, Italy, will visit Holy Family Catholic Church starting at 6:30PM! Pray Vespers with us, enjoy fellowship and a beer sample, and learn more from Fr. Benedict about the monks’ post-earthquake re-building campaign “Deep Roots” in Norcia, the birthplace of Sts. Benedict and Scholastica. All are invited to this free-admission, donations-encouraged event! RSVP here.
