Information for Parents
St. Catherine's prides itself on providing opportunities to enrich each student's experience. From sports and fine arts to community service, choir, and campus ministry, our children benefit from a multitude of opportunities that reach beyond the classroom. Below are a list of activities, clubs, and events students can participate in:
NATIONAL JUNIOR HONOR SOCIETY
All extracurricular activities are suspended until further notice due to Covid restrictions.
Our classrooms will operate very differently this school year. We have made many changes in our day to day practices to ensure safe social distancing and to keep everyone healthy and safe. This year, each child must have his/her own supplies - there will be no sharing allowed. In addition, we are asking each child to bring their own water bottle each day. Water fountains will only be used to refill water bottles, children will not be allowed to drink from them.
Music is such an important part of a child's life. It is also a beautiful form of prayer! Our choir is a big part of our special liturgies at church. From grades 4 through 8, our students enhance our school with beautiful Gospel music and share their talents with nearby nursing homes residents.
As part of a partnership with Oak Park River Forest students volunteer at St. Catherine's which enhances our curriculum and after school enrichment. Students interested in a more focused art class can take advantage of our after school art club.
LAWYERS IN THE CLASSROOM
