Welcome! As a parent of a St. Catherine School student, you are a member of the St. Catherine
What is Parent Club?
The Parent Club at St. Catherine School has three main functions: To raise money to support the
school; to sponsor fun events that build a strong St. Catherine community; and to be a
communication link between the teachers/school staff, and the parents.
Currently, Parent Club contributes over $36,000 a year to the school’s general fund to help
bridge the gap between what parents pay for tuition, and the full cost of educating our children.
Parent Club also contributes funds to the teachers in the form of grants, to the school library, and to multi-arts programs. Parent Club’s largest fundraiser is the Jog-a-thon.
Favorite community events include the Back-to School BBQ, Harvest Festival, and the
Father-Daughter Dance. Parents can enjoy an evening out at Irish Pub Night (without the kids). We
invite your to join us for these events and discover your favorite! Other activities include treating
teachers and staff to coffee and lunches on occasion.
Parent Club’s main communication links are through the Room Ambassadors’ e-mail messages, and
the Principal’s Weekly Newsletter.
How is Parent Club Organized?
A Parent Club Board, made-up of a president, vice-president, treasurer, secretary and several
committee chairs, keeps the Club running. Please see the first page of the School Directory or the
Parent Club page on the school site for a list of current Board members. Consider volunteering for
one of these roles!
