The PTO is integrated into all areas of Saint Catherine’s school life and provides a bedrock of support upon which our school depends. Given the challenge that the PTO takes on every year in support of our school, the work of volunteers is absolutely essential. All school families are automatically enrolled as members of the PTO.
The major PTO sponsored activities are as follows:
- New Family Network, Welcome Back Picnic: New families are paired up with mentor families who help new families feel welcome and ease their transition to the school community.
- Fun-Run Walk: A fundraising event where students get sponsors to pledge on completed laps around the school yard.
- End-Of-Year Showcase and Ice Cream Social: Toward the end of the school year, parents are invited to view their students' projects in their classrooms. Families enjoy the evening with food, entertainment, ice cream, and other frozen delights.
- Pancake Breakfast: Families get the chance to meet, socialize, and enjoy a meal together after Sunday mass.
- Winter Social Ice Skating: Families enjoy an afternoon of skating while raising funds for school needs.
- Sports Awards Program: Athletes, coaches and their families are recognized for their hard work to promote sportsmanship, teamwork and bringing honor to the school.
- Mardi Gras: An amazing, big fun-filled event with live jazz and New Orleans style food to celebrate the last day before Lent begins.
- Red Ribbon Week: Activities support awareness and appreciation for a drug-free and safe environment.
- Adventures in Art: A fine arts program that provides opportunities for the student to learn about artists and create their own art pieces using various materials, methods and techniques, with the help of volunteer docents.
