New Beginnings!

The new school year has gotten off to a great start for our students! Homeroom 7C helped set the tone for the new school year with a fantastic First Friday Mass, embedding our school expectations of kindness, respect, and doing our best! Father Cullen also shared the important message of leadership to our 8th grade students that will help guide our younger students throughout the school year. Mrs. Nelson's kindergarten students received their blessed Religion textbooks from Father Cullen, as they begin their faith filled academic journey this year in school!


We were blessed by a very special visitor, former SCS principal Sr. Margo! Sr. Margo announced Mary Cate Pilla as the winner of the PTA cookbook cover contest winner. We thank Mary Cate and all of our students for their participation in the cookbook cover design contest. We hope that you'll consider purchasing a copy of the cookbook, which can be found at our new online store. http://stcatharineschool-org.3dcartstores.com/


Sr. Margo has been seen at our school enjoying fun events with our students, and evening helping out with lunch duty! Sr. Margo will always be apart of what makes our school so special and we look forward to her presence and involvement throughout the school year.
