Start saving those Box Tops again!

This year, there will be two ways to submit Box Tops. 
  1. Continue to clip and send in Box Tops that you find on your products. 
  2. New this year, you can conveniently download the Box Top For Education App, scan your receipt, and you're done! Once you set up an account linking you to St. Catherine, all Box Top products on your receipt will be added to our school collection. So easy!

Physical Box Tops will soon be phased out, but please continue to send in any that you find on household products.

Submission deadline for physical Box Tops in the Fall is Friday, October 11. 

Thank you for your help! 
We are also collecting Community Coffee labels. Look on the back of your coffee grind bags and the bottom of K-cup boxes and clip those labels! Send them in with your Box Tops! 
Our Virtue for the Month of September
This school year we are focusing on the Colossians Virtues. These are the virtues that are on our conduct referrals. Our hope is that our students will gain a better understanding of each virtue and be able to recognize a poor decision before it happens.
During the month of September we will remember the first responders on 9/11 and will honor a day of Prayer on Friday, September 20 th in response to all the mass shootings. As a school community we will NOT mention these specific incidents, but we WILL focus on PEACE and loving your enemies….. Forgiveness .

Some suggested readings and the Saint Michael prayer.
  • Ecclesiastes, Chapter 3:1-9 (A time for everything)
  • Psalm 23- The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack.
  • Matthew 5:1-12 (Beatitudes)
  • St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander about the world in ruin of souls. 
Legion of Mary Rosary March - October 6th, 2019
  All students are invited to our rosary march on October 6th immediately following the 11am mass as participants in the march.

The march will proceed up Bonnabel a couple of blocks, carrying the statue of Mary while reciting the rosary.
On Wednesday, August 28, 2019 grades 1-7 attended a school theme mass: Shine Like Heaven on Earth! The emphasis was about being kind to each other and creating a ‘heaven like’ environment here at SCS.

On Friday, September 6, 2019 Prek3, Prek4 and Kindergarten attended their first Prayer Service of this school year. This service also focused on ‘shining their light’ for others to see. I read the book shown about sharing your God given gifts with others.
