Saint Kateri School's Weekly Newsletter ~ October 30, 2020


Principal Newsletter

Hello Saint Kateri School families,

Fall is here, the leaves are changing and we will soon be turning our clocks back. I am not ready for snow! God bless all of you families out there preparing your skis and skates ~

We have wrapped up our Virtual Curriculum Night. Our teachers did an amazing job of preparing their presentations and creating their introduction videos. Thank you to all the families for participating in these events to support your child. Contact your child's teacher if you were unable to attend

I am still looking for someone to help with Marketing Saint Kateri School? I would love to talk to you about ways you can get involved in this very important position. The Department of Catholic Schools is also holding a Zoom meeting to help those interested ~ I always learn so much by attending these meetings with Cause Collaborative. Contact me if you want to join me!

Red Ribbon Week began on Monday. It is a fun week learning about healthy habits, physically and mentally ~ Students have been having fun wearing RED and talking about Being Brave! ~ Thank you to Mrs. Connor for coordinating this for our staff and students.

Thank you for all you are doing to support your children and our school!

Peace and Light!

Mrs. Terri L. Morgan, Principal

COVID Chronicles

Stay the course ~

We are so thankful for all the work of our families and teachers; following the guidelines, wearing masks, social distancing ~ all of the safety measures that have been recommended to us. This continued diligence allows us to do what we are doing which is teaching our students, each and every day, in-person, in our classrooms.

We are heading into the time of year when it is getting colder and we tend to stay inside more. It is also soon to be the holiday season ~ and we are going to want to gather together with our loved ones. We miss each other!

Please be diligent with the guidelines and protocols that are being asked of us, even though we are getting tired ~ so we can continue to learn together in school. We cannot do this without you!

Trunk and Treat!
