Parents

An involved parent is the foundation for a child’s success. By staying informed and connected, you can contribute to your child’s success during this academic year. 

The Role of the SCS Parent

We all want the best for our children, but that is not enough. A parent’s words of encouragement, interest in your child’s efforts, support, and involvement are all vital for a successful school year. 

Parents and guardians have a number of opportunities to be involved in the spiritual life and religious formation of their children. They support and help guide their children as they prepare to receive sacraments and participate in various community service endeavors. Volunteers are an integral part of St. Catharine School and parents can choose to participate in the religious education inherent in the life and culture of the school.  They are invited to attend monthly masses and prayer services. In addition, the Parent Teacher Association has a “Spirituality” chairperson to help organize and assist in all religious activities at the school and a “Social Concerns” representative who helps coordinate services to the community.  

Parent involvement at St. Catharine School is not limited to religious opportunities. The school relies on a very active PTA board and many volunteers to assist in daily operations such as lunch and recess, clerical assistance, and afterschool activities. Parents are encouraged to use their gifts and talents to enhance the experience of all the students. Many serve as coaches, enrichment facilitators, scout leaders, community service program organizers, and/or fundraising volunteers.  Some parents are selected to join fieldtrips and each classroom has an assigned “Class Coordinator” who serves as a liaison between the families and administration

Our Parent Access is a safe and secure way to view your child’s school record for the current school year.  Parent Access is available for parents of students in Grades K through 8.  Using this portal is an incredible tool engaging parents in the day-to-day happenings of their children and gives you the ability to stay immediately informed.  Paperless reporting is ecologically friendly, saves time and money as well.  Paper report cards will no longer be sent home, with the exception of the Pre-School reports.  

In September, you will receive an email indicating that Parent Access is open.  Only new accounts will receive a new logon, please read the entire email.  This email will come from: parentsupport@dioceseoftrenton.org. If you forget your password, click on the ‘Forgot Password’ link to have another password automatically sent. Parents who use the incorrect credentials five times in a row (for secruity reasons) will be locked out of the account.   When this happens, please contact Mrs. Profita, do not contact the Diocese.

Grades K – 2 parents will only see Attendance – Contacts – Report Cards.

Parent / Guardian - School Communications

Many parent and community questions are easily and completely answered by communicating directly with the educator in charge of the class or program. Each situation should first be addressed at whatever level the initial action was taken with appeals moving on to the next level on the chain of command. The easiest way to communicate is via e-mail, and a phone call is the next preferable way. Contact information such as e-mail addresses and phone numbers can be found on the school website.
