FROM THE Principal’s Desk

Dear Bluejay Family,

We need your help and cooperation! Last week’s bulletin included a request to return to previous parking procedures for morning and afternoon car line. This is an important safety issue.

Now that the rear lot of the church has been reopened, we are reminding everyone that it should be used for morning and afternoon parking for students who are “walkers.” We also have access to the empty lot on Main Street at the corner of Jefferson. Parents may not park in front of the school or the PLC at these times as it disrupts car line traffic flow, blocks PLC and Chapel access, and tempts students to cross where there is no guard on duty. To help illustrate, please refer to the image with this post for available parking locations in green and lots not to be used in red.

Please help us with running a safe and orderly car line while respectfully sharing access to our campus.

Grace and Peace,

Erin B. Henry


“However, if you fulfill the royal law according to the scripture, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself,’ you are doing well.”

-James 2:8


Safe Environment - Feb 28th

The next Safe Environment Initial Training session will be held on Wednesday, February 28th at 12:00pm. Anyone who will be volunteering their time on our school or church campus, (coaching, chaperoning field trips, vacation bible school, nursery, etc.) MUST attend an in-person initial training. Please register through this link prior to attending the training.

UL Basketball & United Way Teacher Awards - March 1st

🌟 Calling all Bluejay Families! 🌟

Join us in rallying behind our beloved teacher finalist, Ms. Alyse Etie, at the United Way of Acadiana's Teacher Awards presented by Love Our Schools! It's not just an awards ceremony; it's a community-wide celebration of the incredible work our teachers do every day.

Mark your calendars for the final game of the season for the UL Ragin' Cajuns men's basketball team on Friday, March 1, 2023. Festivities kick off at 6:30 pm with a red carpet extravaganza at the Cajundome. During halftime, Ms. Alyse Etie and all the exceptional finalists will be presented. Let's make some noise, decked out in St. Cecilia School colors, waving signs, and spreading the spirit of support. This is our chance to show Ms. Etie and all the finalists just how much they mean to us.

Your ticket to the game is your pass to join the celebration. Discount tickets are available for $8 with code TEACH.

Let's pack the stands, let's raise the roof, and let's make this an unforgettable evening of appreciation and applause. Together, we can honor our teachers in the biggest, loudest, and proudest way possible. 🏀🎉

See you there!

Dear Bluejay Family,

Play ball! Baseball and softball has begun at St. Cecilia. We have finished our first full week of games. We have seen our Bluejays compete very well through the first week. The kids are having fun and the support from the fans is outstanding. Hopefully we can get some slightly warmer weather so we can enjoy our kids on the diamond without having to bundle up. The link to the game schedules for baseball and softball are below. We will be hosting games at the Broussard Sports Complex on Monday. SCS students and faculty are admitted free. We hope that you all can come to support the Bluejays!

In an effort to improve our athletic programs at St. Cecilia, it was felt that a comprehensive athletic handbook was needed. This handbook affects players, coaches, parents, and fans. Parent/guardian completion of this form and adherence to the rules and regulations outlined in the handbook are requirements for participation in athletic programs at St. Cecilia School. The link below will take you to the handbook. It is also on the school website for reference as well. Thank you all for your continued support of SCS Athletics.

For those that have already completed the acknowledgement form, and want to refresh themselves on the rules and regulations, please follow the link below.

****We are so proud of our SCS 7/8th Grade football, 5th Grade White and 7th Grade volleyball teams' fantastic accomplishments this fall. We can now officially celebrate our championships in volleyball and football by purchasing apparel from Action Specialties. These are school approved and can be worn as part of the school uniform. There is a tab on the top horizontal bar for championship apparel. Thanks again for your support of SCS Athletics!

***Thank you for your support of SCS Athletics! To keep up with the schedule for our Bluejays, please follow the link below. Admission into League games are $6 for adults and $1 for kids. SCS staff and students are admitted free.

Have a blessed day,
