FROM THE Principal’s Desk

Dear Bluejay Family,

We closed week two of school with the ribbon cutting for the new OneHeart building. The building includes the Fr. Louis Richard Multipurpose Facility and the Fr. Floyd Calais Youth House. What a great asset this beautiful new facility will be for both St. Cecilia and Sacred Heart Church as we strive to achieve our mission of forming missionary disciples and fostering academic excellence!

In the last two weeks we have held Back to School Nights for all families to have an opportunity to hear, first-hand, classroom procedures and expectations. In my intro video, I shared some important information about attendance for students. One sure way to derail student academic success is frequent absences. We want students who are ill to stay home to prevent the spread of diseases, but we need students who are well to be on time and present each and every school day. We ask your cooperation as partners in your child’s education in making every effort to achieve this goal.

Last, but not least, as we head into September, please join us in praying for rain and relief from this drought.

Loving God, source of all life and provider of all blessings, we come before you with hope, asking for the gift of rain. As dry days linger, we pray for the heavens to open and quench the earth's thirst. Grant strength to those who work the fields and care for your creation. May this rain be a sign of your presence and a call for us to be faithful stewards of our world. With hearts full of gratitude and anticipation, we offer this prayer, trusting in your providence.

Grace and Peace,

Erin B. Henry


“You visit the earth and water it, make it abundantly fertile. God’s stream is filled with water; you supply their grain. Thus do you prepare it: you drench its plowed furrows, and level its ridges. With showers you keep it soft, blessing its young sprouts.”

Psalm 65:10-11

Bluejay Family,

As are full speed ahead with our 1st quarter here are continued upcoming reminders you want to stay in tune to:

Please make note of your child’s AR and service hours progress so you can pace their points to be successful throughout the quarter.

Please continue to have your Sunday meetings. All homework and communications through Bluejay Bulletin are available at 4pm on Sunday’s for everyone. Please take the Sunday afternoons to sit down and plan out your week with your homework, assessments, and commitments so that your child is set up for best success for the week.

Our first progress report of the year will be Friday, September 8. Please be reminded that all progress reports and report cards will be released through the parent portal between 3:00-3:30pm on the marked day. The reports will be set to view for 2 weeks. Please print the reports as you need for your records.

OUR FIRST TAGGED ON TUESDAY IS AUGUST 29! This is where all summer tags will be handed out as well as those who have earned any tags so far. Students have categories in which they get a tag (1-5) or coupons (1-8) as well as leveled prizes for all grade levels.

SCS Mass

This week’s Mass is Wednesday at 8:30 and will be hosted by 8th grade boys. We invite family and friends to join us in the church (limited seating), Narthex or PLC. You can also join us online at shbroussard.org/live or the St. Cecilia Facebook page.

We will have our annual Eucharistic procession and blessing of classrooms after Mass on Wednesday. Be sure to ask your child about their experience!

Eucharistic Adoration

We are so grateful to offer Eucharistic Adoration once a month in our school chapel. Our first Adoration of the year is Friday, September 1. This is such a gift to our campus as we get to sit in silence, face to face with our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. We invite you to join us in Adoration as well. You will simply check in at the front office and then come back to the chapel. Adoration is 7:50-2:30.

SCS Vocations

Our mission of making missionary disciples looks different for all of our students. We are so excited for four of our alumni who are currently serving in the religious life or studying to do so. Please join us in praying for Sister Maria Annunciata (‘09), Mr. Haden Coleman (‘15), Mr. Seth Dupre (‘15), and Mr. Bennett Bodin (‘18). We thank God for their “yes” and pray for their hearts to always be open to God’s plan.

Dear Bluejay Family,

We are finally able to play sports here at St. Cecilia. Our volleyball teams take to the court this week. Our girls will be on the road to start the week against Opelousas Catholic and St. Michael. On Wednesday, we will have our first home game of the season against Opelousas Catholic. Please come out to support our Lady Bluejay Volleyball teams. Admission is $6 for adults and $1 for kids. We are hoping for a packed gym to cheer on our Bluejays that have been working hard since the middle of July.

Our athletic program is successful in no small part to our fantastic group of volunteer coaches. Please join me in thanking this outstanding group of Bluejay servant coaches that have sacrificed their time and talents for our kids.
