A note from the principal

On Thursday, January 27 we’ll host an open house for current and prospective families. I encourage you to come anytime between 6:00 – 8:00. There are three challenges that I would like you to consider. First, you are our school’s best ambassadors. Whenever you can, I ask you to talk up our school and all the many wonderful things that are happening. I encourage you to share how we let our light shine. Second, I would like you to consider bringing a friend, neighbor, or relative to our open house especially if they have elementary school age children. The more we share with others, the more likely they may be interested in enrolling at St. Catherine of Siena Catholic School. Third, we need your prayers. It’s that time of the year when decisions are being made for next school year which involves our parish and school. Pray that those decisions support our mission of helping our school community embrace the Gospel message of Jesus while helping each student reach their full potential spiritually, physically, and academically, according to the Catholic faith. I believe St. Catherine of Siena Catholic School has a bright future and your love, support, prayers will continue to help children come to know Christ in a very intimate, personal, and special way now and  long into the future.

Blessings,

Mike Jacks

Scholastic Book Fair

In 2022, the Book Fair is back!  It will take place in a few weeks during Catholic Schools Week, Jan. 31-Feb. 4.  Things will, of course, look a little different this year, and more details to follow at a later date. But, for now, the children will have an opportunity to view and shop during their regular Library class time. 

 

Please click the link below if you’d like to add an ewallet for your child.  We were able to use this payment option in 2019, and it was so easy and I received no complaints!  I highly recommend the ewallet!
