Reading Assignment "All the Light We Cannot See" (All Grades) - Click here 
 
Just a reminder that in addition to "All The Light We Cannot See," some classes have additional summer reading assignments. For example, freshmen in Honors English I have an additional assignment. 
 
In an effort to stay green and keep costs down, summer assignments are posted on our website, www.santafecatholic.org, under the "Academic" tab. 
 
Textbook List 
Textbooks can be purchased through Follett. Click here for list of textbooks and more information.

English Materials
Rather than purchasing a textbook for English, each student in a regular or honors class is required to pay a materials fee for English for the 2016-2017 school year - the fee is $45 per student. Please submit your payment prior to the first day of school. 
Fees will be collected online using a new program called Bursari.

How to use Bursari:
  • Click on the link:   https://www.ebursar.net/Bursari.Web/sfchs203422011#/payments
  • Enter the student's name (complete steps separately for each student in your family)
  • Click on "Select Item" drop-down menu
  • Select your item (English on-line)
  • Complete the requested payment information
  • Confirm and submit
If you have any questions about the program, please contact Amanda Gaspary at agaspary@santafecatholic.orgIf you have questions about payment, please contact Renee Berkevich at rberkevich@santafecatholic.org.
 
School Supply List
We do not publish a school supply list. What we ask is that students purchase the necessities such as pens, pencils, paper, notebooks, etc. If there is anything specifically needed for a class, the students will be told the first week of school.

The used uniform closet in Crimson Hall will remain opened throughout the school year from 9:00am-3:30pm. All items are $5 each.

SFC Boosters
Fall Sports Program & Signage                    
The Booster Association is in the middle of its biggest fundraiser of the year, the Fall Sports Program & Signage sale. Now in its third year, this full color program is distributed at all home football games, reaching hundreds, if not thousands of fans over the course of the season.  Do you own a business? Do you know someone who does? Do you frequent a business who might like to advertise?  Do you have a student athlete you would like to support with a special ad? The rates are very reasonable and when paired with a field and/or gym sign provide great advertisement and support our Crimson Hawks! All funds raised are used to directly benefit the SFC athletic programs. The order forms can be found here and are due by August 5. Thanks for your support of Hawk Athletics!
