As shared at our Back to School meetings this past August and at the 5-8 Back to School Night, we are making some changes to our student service program.
In order to receive a diploma, a student must: have earned an overall cumulative middle school total GPA of 1.7000 or better, have no “Incomplete” grades on the transcript, and must have completed their Christian Stewardship and Service (SLE Project and SLE Graduation Resume and Interview) requirements and have no outstanding financial obligations.
Should a student receive a grade of “F” for more than one trimester in the same class during the eighth grade year, the student may participate in graduation exercises but will not receive a diploma until the “F” is remediated. Arrangements for academic remediation courses must be made with the administration.
Christian Stewardship and Service Program
All students and families of St. Edward the Confessor Parish School are invited and encouraged to fully participate in the practice of our faith through Christian stewardship and service.

Sunday Vigil/Sunday Mass
As stewards of the faith, students and their families are invited and encouraged to regularly attend the Sunday Vigil/Sunday Mass. The faculty and staff will take time to prepare students for the Sunday readings. Students and their families are also encouraged to preview these readings at home. The readings can be found on the US Catholic Conference of Bishops website link under “Today’s Readings”: http://www.usccb.org/bible/
In addition to attendance at Sunday Vigil/Sunday Mass, students are encouraged to participate in the celebration as altar servers, lectors, ushers, choir members, or ambassadors for the various parish ministries and programs. Students are also encouraged to make some kind of weekly offering.
As one of the ministries of the Parish, the school serves to support the goal of the parish to become a House of Prayer and House for the Poor. Students, families, faculty and staff will receive regular invitation to participate in the outreach programs hosted or supported by the parish. Communication of these programs will be provided through the parish bulletin, weekly e-newsletter or “Weekly Highlights”, student assemblies, classroom announcements, and through other school communications.
