Dear Parents,

As we are coming to the close of Catholic Schools Week, it is evident that every day in our school we celebrate our Faith, Knowledge, and Service to others. As part of our effort to educate the whole child, we make every effort to instill in our students a lifelong appreciation of learning. We teach them their faith and commitment to serving others. 

It is with the partnership of our parents that we prepare our students to become good citizens and active members of their parish and community. I thank you for choosing Catholic Education for your children and for choosing St. Catherine of Siena School. It is truly a blessing to us to have your children in our lives.  

Quote from Pope Francis:

"The Kingdom of God is already in our midst like a hidden seed. Anyone with pure eyes can see it blossom."

Faithfully Yours,

Miss Giaquinto

News From The Nurse
There has been a lot of illnesses reported at school.  Flu activity remains widespread in CT. Please monitor your child and if they have a fever, chills, headache, body aches, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, persistent cough and or rash, please keep them home. 
Children should remain home to rest and regain their strength and may return to school when they are fully recovered.  Returning to school too soon to may cause a relapse in illness and or cause one to be susceptible to a secondary infection.

Please remember to send your child to school with a winter coat, hat and gloves, to protect them from the extreme cold temperatures.

Thank you,
Mrs. Hogan, RN
