December 2018
Traditions, old and new.
The latest from your alma mater.

It's the most wonderful time of the year!
The holiday season has arrived, and with it, a sense of excitement and wonder best viewed through a child's eyes!
Annual Christmas Show
The annual Christmas Show will be held on Friday, December 14, at 12:45 in the School Gymnasium.

We invite you to join us as we usher in the holiday season with this beautiful mix of new and old traditions. Our school children have been practicing their songs and roles for this show for weeks!
Paying It Forward
Holiday time at St. Catharine of Siena School is a fun and festive time. It's also an opportunity to be of service to our community.

Thanks to the generosity of our families, we were able to make a donation of non-perishable items to re-stock the St. Joseph Food Pantry after Thanksgiving. Currently, we are working to assemble gifts for local families in need and for the SIXTH STATION - an organization headed up by a Parish Family that delivers blankets and socks to the homeless in the Philadelphia area.

And on Tuesday, December 4, our first grade delivered homemade Christmas cookies to Central Berks Regional Police Department, baked and decorated by the entire class while practicing their virtue of the month, PATIENCE.
