All parents of students attending St. Catherine School are members of the Parent Club.
It is the mission of the St. Catherine School Parent Club to facilitate, encourage and ensure ongoing community building by providing activities, fundraising events and service to the school. The club is a vehicle supporting communication between home and school, offering a mechanism for parent education and serving as a structure for political action when needed.
Here are just some of the events that Parent Club sponsors throughout the year:
All Year Long: Fun and educational school assemblies, Fun and educational presentations for parents by childcare professionals
The Parent Club Board is looking forward to a wonderful 2012/2013 school year. The board members for this year are listed below, as well as our meeting schedule. Board meetings are held once a month and are open to everyone. We encourage you to join us as we plan our community events and fundraising activities for the year.

We are blessed with many supportive parents, grandparents, parish members and friends who serve our school. Planning class parties, supervising recess, assisting with school events, chaperoning field trips, being an active member of the Parent Board, and helping in the classroom are just some of the many valuable services our volunteers perform. We appreciate your commitment to our community and thank you for your service.
St. Catherine’s needs more than tuition dollars to operate efficiently and effectively. Your involvement is essential to the success of our students and school. Your participation helps keep tuition as low as possible. In contributing your time and talents, you reinforce St. Catherineʼs mission “to prepare students who show competence, conscience and compassion by using their minds well, acting justly and serving the needs of others.” School families are required to complete 45 volunteer hours, 5 of which MUST be completed specifically for the School Auction. At year end, there will be a $25.00 charge per hour for volunteer hours not completed. Volunteer reporting forms will be sent out monthly in the Wednesday envelope. The form will also be available online and in the office.
We heard you! We received lots of positive feedback that you like having events assigned by class. This give each class an opportunity to work together as a team to host our community events and plan out your volunteer hours more effectively.
Here is the list of events and assigned classes for 2012-2013.
