Diplomas, graduation programs, and worship aides will have your child's full name as it appears on his/her birth certificate.  If you prefer anything other than that, please email Mary Lowell at [email protected] by Friday, December 17th.


We look forward to preparing a commemorative video for the Class of 2022.  We need your help!  We are hoping to get the following pictures of each graduate:

  • Baby/toddler picture 
  • First communion/ second grade picture
  • Picture of something they like doing now. Example, sport, hobby, etc.
  • Group shots from over the years at St. Edward's
Karla and Jeff Garner have graciously volunteered to created our video.  Please upload your pictures to the Class of 2022 Shutterfly account.  A folder has been created for each student.  Instructions for uploading your pictures are on the website.  Please upload your pictures by Friday, April 15.



Our yearbook coordinator, Mrs. Maite Cruz looks forward to including a tribute for each of our graduates in our annual school yearbook. The cost of a tribute is $50 for a ¼ page custom ad. In order to make our print deadline for the tribute signature, we need camera ready tributes by Friday, December 3, 2021. For more information, please download the flyer at the bottom of the page or contact Mrs. Maite Cruz at [email protected].
