FROM THE Principal’s Desk

Dear Bluejay Family,

We strive to be good neighbors to the residents around us. We need your help and cooperation with this during morning and afternoon car line. We have been contacted by a local resident regarding her driveway being blocked during these times. Please remember the following important points regarding car line:

  • Railroad is a residential street. You should never block anyone’s driveway or impede traffic while waiting or traveling in car line. Doing so could result in a citation.
  • Follow the usual rules of the road (driving on the right) until you EXIT the horseshoe behind the church. At that point, keep LEFT, immediately behind the mausoleum.
  • If another relative or driver will be picking up your child(ren), please make sure they are familiar with these guidelines.

We greatly appreciate you helping us to respect the rights of the residents surrounding our campus!

Grace and Peace,

Erin B. Henry

Bluejay Family,

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.


As we continue to move into the quarter, please be reminded of the new make up test policy and test taking center in the 2023-2024 handbook.

Grades 6-8:

The primary option will be to use the make up test center in the Spanish classroom. Testing sessions will be on Monday/Wednesday afternoons from 2:45-3:20 pm and Tuesday/Thursday mornings from 7:20-7:55am. There will be a total of 4 testing opportunities a week. If a student is 10 minutes late to a testing session, they will be denied the opportunity to take the test that day.

A 2 week makeup timeline for assessments will begin the day students return to school (including if a session was held that morning). After two weeks, the student will only have an opportunity to obtain a maximum of 70% of the assessment grade.

SCS Mass

This week’s Mass is Wednesday at 8:30 and will be hosted by 6th grade girls. 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 are excited to announce that plans are underway for the 8th annual SCS Bluejay Color Run that will take place Thursday, October 5th. This is a great opportunity for your child to get moving and have fun, all while raising money in support of our school. Funds raised will go towards improving the gym sound system. This is an untimed run and everyone will be a winner! All grades will be able to participate.


SCS Celebrates 114 years on September 15th. If you or someone you know is an alum, please join us for a Founding Feathers event.


Running CLUB

Dear Bluejay Family,

Volleyball got underway this week here at St. Cecilia. The girls were outstanding as they took to the road to battle St. Michael and Opelousas Catholic. The week saw our first home game of the year as Opelousas Catholic were our guests on Wednesday night. It was a great night of volleyball for the Bluejays. Cross country is getting ready for its first meet of the season on September 9th. The 5/6th Grade Football team scrimmaged against Sts. Leo Seton and the 7/8th Grade team scrimmaged against Fatima.

As we approach the beginning of games that coincide with school days, please refer to Mrs. Langlinais’ email from this week regarding absence from school. We do not want to affect our teams’ eligibility.

We would like to remind everyone of our policy for participating in extracurricular activities after school. As stated in the student handbook on page 51, "If a student is absent 3/7 or more of instructional time, he/she may NOT participate in after-school activities that day without special permission from administration." This includes, but is not limited to, team practices or games, club meetings, and special school events.


This coming Saturday will be a busy one for our Bluejays. The football and cheer teams will be at STM for our football jamboree. Our cross country team will be at Acadiana Park taking part in the Sargent Memorial Meet, and our 7th and 8th grade volleyball teams will be playing in the Cajun Elite volleyball tournament. To keep up with the schedule for our Bluejays, please follow the link below. Thank you for your support of SCS Athletics! Admission is $6 for adults and $1 for kids.

Have a blessed day,

Scott Boudreaux
