Social Media

Social media is a great tool to allow us to share with the world everything NCCS has to be thankful for!  While many people leverage this tool, this is not where the main source of information comes from.  If you see something on social media that was not in the weekly memo or take home folder, please call the office for clarity.

As this is a second source of communication, we will also use it to send reminders and share events throughout the year.

NCCS has a Facebook page – Northern Chautauqua Catholic School
NCCS has an Instagram – N. Chautauqua Catholic School

We also have a closed group Facebook page for current families, students and employees to share stories, pictures and ask for help! 


For example:  If it is 9pm at night and you cannot remember if it is out of uniform the next day, you can ask a fellow parent.

This exclusive Facebook page is – We Love the Monarchs!

Guidelines for Facebook Group

Current staff, employees and family can ask to join or be invited by a current member.
Any post that contains curse words or violates the school’s mission will be removed.
