Our St. Constance School students participated in the 27th Annual Zaner-Bloser National Handwriting Contest. Congratulations to Ms. Prokuski and the following “Grade Level” winners who will represent St. Constance School in the National Competition: Sebastian Cortel, Carmine Lowe, Jaidalynn Ortiz, Olivia LaCour, Aleksandra Jakubas, Natalia Novello-Sawicki, Anthony Hanna, Emilia Faber, and Julia Kotyza. We will be notified by May 1, 2018 if any of these students will advance to the next level. Best wishes to all!
Parents, I am asking for your cooperation once again in a matter that is becoming increasingly disruptive. Arriving late for school/church is becoming excessive. An occasional tardiness can occur, but it should not be a daily habit. If this behavior is applicable to you, please make the necessary modifications.Parents, I am asking for your cooperation once again in a matter that is becoming increasingly

I would like to remind you that per the Parent-Student Handbook, the “winter” uniform dress code will end on March 31, 2018. Turtlenecks may no longer be worn, and girls must once again wear their uniform jumper or skirt. Until you are notified to the contrary, students may not wear the blue walking shorts. All are encouraged to review the general dress code policy in the ParentStudent Handbook which is posted on our school website. I am asking for everyone’s assistance in making sure that their child is dressed appropriately and in compliance with the school’s dress
