FROM THE Principal’s Desk

Dear Bluejay Family,

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Today, as we celebrate the life and legacy of St. Patrick, we also mark the 5th Sunday of Lent, a time of deep reflection and spiritual preparation for Easter.

St. Patrick's story is one of faith, courage, and unwavering dedication to spreading the Gospel. His mission to bring Christianity to Ireland is a testament to the power of belief and the importance of sharing God's love with others. As we honor St. Patrick today, we are reminded of the values he embodied: humility, forgiveness, and compassion. Like St. Patrick, we are called to be instruments of God's grace, reaching out to others with kindness and understanding.

As we near the end of Lent, let us emulate St. Patrick's spirit of resilience and faithfulness by doing more than wearing green. Let us use this time to reflect on our own lives, seek reconciliation where needed, and deepen our relationship with God. As a school community, let's support each other in prayer and encourage one another to live out the values that St. Patrick exemplified.

Grace & Peace,

Erin B. Henry


“For a sun and shield is the LORD God, bestowing all grace and glory. The LORD withholds no good thing from those who walk without reproach.”

- Psalm 84:12

Dear Bluejay Family,

We have another team of champions at St. Cecilia! The Christian School League is proud to declare our 5th/6th grade girls’ softball team as Champions of Division II. They ran through their season this year while suffering only one loss to Cathedral. Coaches and fans from other schools expressed how impressed they were with the talent and humility that the girls put on display this season. This is a testament to the coaches’ dedication to the girls and St. Cecilia. They will also be able to proudly wear their championship shirts soon and have a banner to look at! Special thanks to Coaches Jason Maynard, Dustin Arnaud, and Brittany Broussard for not only winning, but winning the right way!

Officially baseball and softball ended on Wednesday for the Bluejays. We concluded the season with a baseball and softball presentation for our 8th graders. We thank them for their years of representing us. They have experienced success that we have not seen in quite a while. We look forward to seeing their names on high school rosters and following them in their careers.

Track, tennis, swim, and golf practices will once again take place this week. We look forward to seeing our last group of Bluejays in action as we look to close out the athletic year. We are planning our 8th grade athletic banquet and our 5th, 6th, and 7th grade athletic banquet. The 8th graders will enjoy a formal sit down dinner to celebrate their contributions to SCS. The 5th- 7th graders will enjoy a fun night in the gym while watching a movie and enjoying food and festivities. The banquets will be on two separate nights. Details will follow later.

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.
