Quick Updates

  • First Saturday Mass Student Sign up: Please consider joining us for mass at St. Margaret's Church on Saturday, November 4th at 4:00 PM. The first Saturday of every month will be driven by the students of St. Catharine School. If you would like your child to be a reader, or even simply sign up as a greeter, please view and sign up with the link posted above. All students that attend are encouraged to wear their school uniform.

Halloween Reminders:

  • Halloween Parade: Halloween Parade will be on Tuesday October 31st at approximately 12:45 PM. Students in grades PreK-5 will march around the perimeter of our recess area, within our fence. Parents are encouraged to join us Tuesday afternoon and watch the parade. In respect to student safety, we kindly ask all parents to watch from the outside of our fence. Students will be marching by for a quick "high five" or photo opportunity.

  • Halloween Costumes: Costumes should be tasteful, modest, and appropriate for a school environment. No form of weapon, masks, blood, or gore may be part of the costume. All students (preK-8) may wear their physical education uniform to school on Halloween. Students in PreK-5 will change into their Halloween costumes at school.

Thank you to all the students who tried out for both Basketball and Cheeleading. Our teams have been selected and wish all the best of luck in the upcoming season.

Please go back to the website and use Pay Pal to submit your participation fee. Each student has received a uniform fee envelope. Please return as as soon as possible. Thank you!


Dear St. Catharine’s School Parents:


As you may or may not know, last year we changed the run from Allaire State Park to St. Catharine’s School. We wanted more families/alumni to participate to run/walk and have a family day with Santa, activities, etc. This is our predominant fund raiser for the SCS Athletics program. The success of the fundraising event depends on our families. If your child/children participates on any of the teams you already understand the camaraderie our children experience and the pride they feel representing SCS.

You also know that if your child plays on a club team for a sport not offered at SCS, or does not gravitate towards sports, their pride intheir school and their friends is heightened by a strong athletic program.

That being said; please consider becoming a family sponsor, take an ad or volunteer and be part of the SCS Christmas 5K.

All of our coaches are volunteers and we are able to have almost 100% of our students participate in 1 sport or more.

The opportunity for our students to participate, play, improve their athletic skills, develop lasting friendship, learn teamwork and leadership is priceless.

Without you we would not be able to continue to grow and expand our Athletic program. Please come out and support the run. Thank you,

Ellen Meixsell Athletic Director

Christmas 5K Run

We are 6 weeks away from our 2nd annual SCS Christmas 5K!!!The race is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 2nd. To add to the excitement, we would like to have a contest for the class with the highest percentage of registered runners/walkers.

The winning class will receive a PIZZA PARTY!! You must be registered by

NOVEMBER 25TH. Remember, if you do not wish to run the race, you can also walk. Either way, it will be FUN!! Kick off the Christmas season with your SCS family! We can’t wait to see you on the course!
