Dear SPC Families,
It is good to be back in school! Thank you for your understanding and patience this week. Let's hope the cold weather is behind us. This weekend, we have much to celebrate on the basketball court as all of our 6th-8th grade teams battle in the playoffs. We love to see SPC families in the stands, so check in with the SPC Athletic Instagram for games and locations for the tournament! You can also check the conference website for the latest playoff bracket.

Celebrating the Spirit is coming up in two weeks…Friday, February 2nd, a night you won’t want to miss! Reminder: Tonight at Midnight, tickets will increase to $150. If you plan on attending but have not yet purchased your tickets, click here.  

Stay tuned next week; the committee will share a sneak peek of the exciting Party Boards, precious Student/Class Art, Teacher Treats, and one-of-a-kind auction packages. 

Catholic Schools Week:

It is the most wonderful week of the year! Catholic Schools Week is right around the corner and promises to be a fun-filled week celebrating St Paul of the Cross. We start Catholic Schools Week on Sunday, January 28th, with our Open House and close the week with CTS on Friday, February 2nd! Please see below for a schedule of activities:

Celebrating the Spirit 2024

CTS 2024 Invite

We can't wait to Celebrate the SPC Spirit on February 2nd!
Don't forget that the ticket price increase to $150 at Midnight TONITE! Purchase tickets here

Celebrating the Spirit will be an outstanding night from the moment you pull up to our Fabulous Las SPegas! The casino tables will open at 7:30 pm; until then, grab a drink, sign up for your favorite parties on our fantastic Party Boards, renew your vows in the chapel, bid on the auction packages and precious student class art, and socialize with friends. It will be a night to remember!

We'll give a sneak peek next week, so stay tuned for the exciting Party Boards, Student Class Art, Teacher Treats, and one-of-a-kind auction packages. The Party Boards are physical sign-up boards at CTS and will not be on the mobile bidding. Many of these will sell out quickly, so plan to get to Las SPegas early to sign up for the parties you want to attend!

Thank you for supporting SPC!

Thank you!
