Imagination Library

Did you know that you can register your child to receive one free book per month from birth to age 5?  Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is a program which strives to develop a love for reading in young children.   "The single most significant factor influencing a child's early educational success is an introduction to books and being read to at home prior to beginning school."
-National Commission on Reading

Kindergarten Information Night!

Please see your child's folder for information about a Blessed Sacrament & Regina Coeli Kindergarten Information night being held at our school in the St. Dominic Room on 2/25/20 from 7 PM-8 PM

Please be aware if you plan on using EdChoice next year for your K-12 student there are likely to be changes to the program which may make your child ineligible.  Please update yourself on the current issues surrounding EdChoice.  If you feel compelled to contact your representative in support of EdChoice please follow the link provided.  Please note that EdChoice scholarship and the Early Childhood Education Grant (used at our school) are completely separate.  

Please note changes to our Summer Care policy!

Optional Summer Care registration will be open within the next month.  This Care welcomes current students ONLY.  Beginning this year, older & younger sibling will not be permitted to attend.  Current students attending Kindergarten in the fall ARE permitted to attend.  Students who have NOT attended our school in the 2019-2020 school year will not be able to register.  Sorry for the inconvenience this may place on some families.
