Spring Pictures for grades PK-8

On Tuesday, March 26, Lifetouch will be here to take Spring pictures of all students in grades PK to 8.  Students may dress up or wear their school uniform for the pictures.  All clothing must be school appropriate and follow dress code. (For example:  No spaghetti straps, sandals, flip-flops, or beach footwear, etc.)  A flyer was sent home for you to pick one of the six backgrounds you would like for your student's picture.  No money is needed at this time.  A picture package will come home in a few weeks for you to proof and decide if you would like to purchase the entire package, some of them or return the entire package to school.  At that time you will send in the money for picture(s) you like or return all of them to school.  If you have any questions, please contact Lifetouch Customer Service at 800-736-4753.

Dear Cardinal Stritch Parents and Guardians,


Today schools are tasked with doing so much more than just teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic.  Today our teachers are charged with being counselors, mentors, and so much more.


Today we are asking for your support of Cardinal Stritch by making a donation to the Cardinal Family Fund.  This important resource ensures that students continue to get the support they need today, tomorrow, and well into the future.


Pledge forms are available online at or in the Advancement Office at school.


Thank you in advance for your generosity!
