"One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts." (Psalm 145:4) "From this, and many other Scripture passages, we can see clearly that each generation is called to build on the foundation left by the previous generation. Therefore, all generations need each other to complete the work that God has called us to fulfill."
We are so excited to welcome our grandparents and special persons to Saint Katharine Drexel Catholic School tomorrow morning. We are overwhelmed by the response we have received for our event, and we have planned a special morning. We will begin our celebration by gathering to give praise to God at our Mass of Thanksgiving at 9am.
As we recognize and honor the gifts and wisdom of the generations, we pray that both the young and the old hear and embrace the Good News of our Lord, Jesus Christ, so that we all may learn to see with eyes that find God in every aspect of our lives.
Veteran's Day Celebration
Please join us for our annual Veterans Day Celebration when we will honor those who have served our country and fought for our freedom! If you have a relative who is veteran and he/she would be able to join us, please call the office. Our celebration will begin at 10am on Thursday, November 14th.
Winter School Uniform
Students must begin wearing their winter school uniform on November 1st. As always, a neat appearance demonstrates respect for others and fosters an individual’s sense of self-respect and pride. The SKD winter uniform requirements can be found in our Family Handbook on our school website.
Healthy Hands, Healthy Heart
Fall is here, and with the cool breeze comes the unfortunate cold and flu! If your child is sick, please keep him or her home. Please remind your child to always remember to wash his or her hands. Studies have proven that hand washing (next to the flu shot) is the BEST way to avoid colds and flu. A healthy diet and sleep also keep your immune system going, so be sure that your child gets plenty of rest!
Student Safety First
Please enter the morning drop-off car line with caution. The morning drop off is an express line; parents may not stop and get out of their cars. Students must exit from the PASSENGER SIDE only. Students MUST be ready to exit the car once pulling into the car line drop-off in order to eliminate back-up traffic. DO NOT DRIVE OUT OF THE CAR LINE. PLEASE WAIT FOR THE LINE TO MOVE SLOWLY TO EXIT.
If you need to bring your child into the school building, you MUST park your car in the front of the school and enter through the main school entrance. You must report to the office. No cars are permitted to park or idle in front of the school in the fire lane.
Please make every effort to get your child to school on time. This teaches our students respect and courtesy along with an understanding of the importance of being on time. When a child is late, it disrupts the morning routines of the classroom and often the child becomes overwhelmed.
