Step by Step

On November 1, 2019 the students of St. Catharine School will be participating in a school wide walk around Spring Lake. The entire student body, faculty and administration of St. Catharine School will be walking together. Every year our school engages in various activities that help to strengthen the personal connections we have both within our school and with the surrounding community at large. This year we are calling our fundraiser: “Step-by-Step: we grow stronger together”. We firmly believe that by uniting and moving forward - together - we will be able to achieve great things and continue providing an excellent education enriched by our Catholic faith.

There are two ways you can show your support for our school:

1. Venmo @StepbyStepSCS - Please in notes indicate student name and grade you are sponsoring

2. Print out the below form fill out the information and mail it to St. Catharine School

Halloween Events!

Our annual SCS Halloween Parade will be on October 31st at approximately 1:00 PM. Students in grades PreK-4 through grade 5 will march around the perimeter of our recess area, within our fence. Parents are encouraged to join us 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 twice 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. Students are not permitted to wear masks or wear any form of an accessory that covers their eyes. All students (preK-8) may wear their physical education uniform to school on Halloween. Students in PreK-4 through grade 5 will change into their Halloween costumes at school.

Halloween Costume Drive: Donate Halloween Costumes, now until October 18th

Trunk or Treak: October 25th, please see flyers for details.
