It's FriYay!

Truly, it's FriYay! We have had an amazing week thanks to YOU! Our teachers have thoroughly enjoyed Teacher Appreciation Week. The daily events Home and School had arranged for them were awesome! Teachers also played "Game of Games" all week which ended in Big Prizes for them, again, thanks to your donations!! Thank you so much for helping me treat our teachers so well. They really deserve it! And, we are all truly thankful for your generosity.

The next two weeks will be a blur. Next week, we will finish up the iReady diagnostic. We are happy to announce that we will have a summer enrichment program, and these diagnostics will be helpful in determining our students' needs. On Wednesday, we will have the NJHS Induction of new members (both from last year and this year). Wednesday will also be our eighth-graders last day, and graduation will be on Friday, May 14.

Our Penny War has been very successful. It officially ends at 2:00 today, and we will let the houses know who won on Monday! So far, we've raised nearly $900!

Last night's Sports Banquet Picnic was awesome. The weather was beautiful, and even though we arranged it outside for COVID, it seems that people may have liked it better outdoors!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Open Enrollment

Open enrollment began March 22. Please help spread the word about St. Catherine with your family and friends! Increasing our enrollment helps everyone! As we have more students, the cost to educate one student goes down! That give us more money to spend on programs and upgrades and it means we have to do less fundraising! WIN - WIN. As we did last year, we are happy to extend a referral credit to existing families. Please contact the office for more details!

Please share our webpage to interested family or friends.
