COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS
What's on Your Mind? Help Us Plan Thursday Chat
Thursday Chat is an open forum virtual conversation series designed to give our community the opportunity to ask questions, share ideas, and build and strengthen relationships with the school and each other.

These casual discussions will begin on Thursday, October 1 and continue throughout the year on the first and third Thursdays of the month. Together we will explore a variety of subjects, and each gathering will have at its core how St. Catherine’s can best meet your needs as parents and members of our community.

To that end, we would like your input. Please answer these two questions to help us design Thursday Chat to ensure each conversation addresses the issues most on your minds and that we schedule the discussions for times that work well for the community.

The 31 individuals who have responded so far have ranked their first-choice times as follows:
We would love to hear from more of you before we move forward with final preparations for the first chat. Please give us your input by this Friday at 5:00 PM.

Tip of the Week: Discipline Equals Teaching and Building Skills
Message from Sandra Espinosa, SCM Counselor and Health Care Coordinator
On this ongoing parenting journey there are those awesome moments when life places at your feet exactly what you needed in order to move you from a place of feeling stuck as a parent to giving you inspiration and a deeper understanding of how to better manage your child’s behaviors and big emotions.
