#SKSproud

Hello Saint Kateri School families,


Today I am including a link to a song Many and One that we sing at Saint Kateri School and it speaks to our call to be a part of something bigger. Phrases that resonated with me during this time ~


~ Bringing MERCY and PEACE to this world

~ We are separate but bound by His LOVE


Oftentimes, music can speak the words that we are unable to properly articulate.


God bless you all and your families each and every day ~ We look forward to our last week of school and hope to be able to see you at our Car Parade next Thursday!

Virtual Field Day and Trunk-n-Treasure

On Thursday, June 18th we will have a fun filled day!


Teachers are leading a Virtual Field Day from 10:00-11:00am. The activities will be fun for all ages and only require materials that can be found around the house. A list of supplies is included above so that families can prepare.


In the afternoon, from 1:00-3:00pm, we will have a Car Parade around the Saint Kateri School campus. We are calling it Trunk-n-Treasure and it will have an Under the Sea theme. Teachers and Staff will be stationed around the school by their cars and will hand out what they need to from their trunks. This will also be the time when you can return Chromebooks, Library books, any learning materials, etc.

Rainbow Mass

We Hope You Will Join Us!

This year 5th grade will be leading a Rainbow Mass on Friday, June 19th at 9:00am. It will be LIVE streamed to YouTube so all are invited and encouraged to view together.


This Mass includes a coming together of our traditional Rainbow Prayer Service and the 5th grade Celebration! There will be a pictorial tribute to our departing 5th graders.
