Each new student in grades 1-12 will be assigned a buddy family during the summer. Buddy families will become your point of contact for transitioning into our School family. Early Learners, Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten room parents will serve as the main point of contact for families new to the School.
All parents automatically become members of the Parents’ Association (PA) and are welcome to attend monthly board meetings. The PA works to further the School's Mission through building community with parents, students, faculty and staff. The PA actively recruits volunteers, organizes parent information and hosts events and special activities, some of which are in coordination with St. Christopher's School. The Parent Enrichment Series is one example of a joint event in which guest speakers enrich our parent population with relevant topics about raising and educating children. In addition, The PA runs the School's largest fundraiser and friendraiser - Daisy Days - a spectacular Spring Carnival held each April. There are many different ways a parent can get involved in Parents' Association, and we hope you will join us! Learn more about Parents' AssociationQuestions?
The School has Welcome Chairs for each division to help new families transition into the community through a variety of communications and events. In addition, the School sends each new family a Welcome Brochure in the early summer with important information, tips, terms and dates to help new families navigate their St. Catherine's experience.
Sharing your gifts — a tradition at St. Catherine's
You can volunteer as much or as little as you like. When opportunities arise, take them! Being on campus is the best way to get to know our faculty, staff and students while showing your daughter the importance of giving back to her community. Volunteer opportunities include interacting with your daughter’s classroom, chaperoning field trips, and participating in fundraising, Daisy Days and various committees that promote student programs and parent enrichment. Stay tuned for more information from the Parents’ Association in the fall.
In addition to giving your time, we hope you will also support our fundraising efforts. St. Catherine’s is fortunate to have strong financial support from families, alumnae and friends who are dedicated to helping us provide girls and young women with the best possible educational experience. We hope you will respond when asked to participate in Annual Giving, which impacts every aspect of School life. All girls benefit from our community’s overwhelming generosity.
