Parents' Association

​​Welcome to the Parents’ Association!
As parents and families of a student at St. Catherine’s School, you are automatically a member of the Parents’ Association (PA). Educating your daughter is a partnership between home and school, and we value our parents as important members of the school community.
We provide opportunities for fellowship as we support the school’s mission to offer a premier girl-centered education. Being on campus is a wonderful 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 serving on various committees that promote student and parent programming.

The PA also coordinates the School's largest fundraiser Daisy Days, an annual spring carnival that involves more than 300 volunteers each year.
There are many different ways to get involved with the Parents' Association, and we hope you will join us! 

Here’s what you can expect from us:
  • Welcome receptions at Back to School Nights
  • All Parent PA meetings on October 12 and Jan. 11
  • Regular communication from room parents and grade level representatives
  • Parent Enrichment programming in collaboration with St. Christopher’s School
  • Social events for students and parents
  • Daisy Days spring carnival  - April 28 & 29, 2023
  • Numerous volunteer opportunities
