Nativity Performance: December 14, 2021 at 6 p.m., rain date December 16, 2021

The Nativity Performance, formerly called the Cantata, began in 1907. One of our most beautiful traditions will take place outside this year! On Tuesday, December 14, with a rain date of Thursday, December 16, this 114-year-old tradition will be held outside at 6 p.m. Grades 1 through 8 perform Christmas songs, and the eighth graders retell the story of the Nativity at this beautiful event.

Teacher and Staff Gift Fund:  Donations due by Friday, December 17, 2021

During the Christmas season, we know many of you want to honor all the awesome teachers and staff at Saint Cols who help our children learn and grow each day, especially during these challenging times. The Teacher and Staff Gift Fund is the school's preferred vehicle for giving Christmas gifts to the staff. It allows the “specials” teachers and support staff to receive Christmas gifts in addition to the homeroom teachers. This gift, as always, is totally optional. Donations are due by Friday, December 17 via this link or via check mailed to the school office at 25 Arlington Street, made out to “STCPS” with “STCPS Teacher Fund” in the memo line, attention Lavinia Ifrim.
