Weekly message from Principal Stephanie KristovicKristovic.


Living Faith| Achieve Excellence| Develop Character| Be Warm and Welcoming| Promote Teamwork


Dear Families,

I think on the things that made me feel so wonderful when I was young.

I think on the things that made me laugh, made me dance, made me sing.

I think on the things that made me grow into a being full of pride.

I think on these things, for they are true.  – Y. M. Barnswell, Wanting Memories

On Sunday, April 15, the Lumen Christi Choir “Cantoribus” will be singing these lyrics as a part of their performance at Carnegie Hall.

Whether returning from a Jamaica mission trip or singing at Carnegie Hall, our young men and women are growing into such incredible people.  With hard work, community, dedication, and the pursuit of lofty goals, they achieve incredible things.  And with it, they bring song, dance, and laughter to our world.

Thank you, students, for your song, dance, laughter, and joy.  May this truth bless you Sunday and the rest of your lives.

In the Light of Christ,

Mrs. Kristovic

  • From Mrs. Kuhl: Shout out to Anna Clark for her leadership with Prayers and Letters!
  • From Mrs. Lefere: CONGRATULATIONS to the Mon/Tues Environmental Club Seminar! WE WERE ACCEPTED FOR THE GREEN SCHOOL STATUS!!! This seminar group worked hard to make Lumen Christi a “green” school by starting some ecological programs around school.  We are recycling,  adopted an endangered animal and making sure that people are turning off lights and projectors to save energy among other things. WAY TO GO STUDENTS!!! We will pick up our Green Schools Flag in May and hang it proudly in our school. Keep up the good work!  Our planet NEEDS more ecologically conscious people like you!!
