Main Announcements  

Pre-K Program Expansion  


We are excited to announce that we will be opening a second Pre-K class for the 2020-21 school year.  Kindergarten will be moving to their new home in our remodeled space, and we will be adding a second Pre-K class to the current kindergarten space in the church basement.  This class will mirror our current class in terms of age group, hours, schedule and curriculum, allowing us to serve twice as many families!  We are working on the licensing piece in order to be able to offer the extended day option as well.  Thank you to Fr. Oliver and Assumption Parish for granting us space to expand this important program, and we look forward to welcoming all of our new Pre-K students in the fall.

Volleyball 


The 7th and 8th grade girls volleyball teams are split into varsity and junior varsity divisions. This requires an assessment process that allows assessors to determine the best fit for each player. Assessments will be held the week of February 10th-13th, time TBD. In order to be eligible for the varsity team, students need to attend at least one of the assessment nights; two would be preferred. The assessors will be looking at the skills of each student and will focus on serving, passing, setting & spiking and court play. Parents are not allowed in the gym to watch the assessments. We strive to create an environment that is low stress and lots of fun! 

Basketball 


Are your kids struggling to get their shot off or deliver passes under pressure? Do they feel like there’s never enough space to make a pass? Click HERE for a live tutorial on all 4 stops, to free them up on the court and boost their confidence!

Please visit the CYO Team Sideline for game schedules. Good luck with the season.
