The staff has many plans underway for the 2021-2022 school year and would like to extend a special welcome to all new and returning families. We feel so fortunate to be able to share our faith in a Catholic school and would like to thank you for making this school truly a special place to be!
As you and your family make plans for the year ahead, I want to invite and encourage you to play an active role in your child’s education. Parenting is an awesome responsibility. It is comforting to know that there are others who are willing to be true partners with you in the growth and education of your children. Parents who choose a Catholic school for the education of their children also choose to be a part of a powerful network of people who share common Christian beliefs and values. School researchers call this value-added benefit of community “social capital.” They have found that social capital adds real value to the overall school experience for children and their families. Children achieve greater academic and social gains when they spend their school days in an environment where the greater Catholic school community supports them.
I am proud to be principal of your child’s Catholic elementary school. St. Katharine Drexel is a great place for families! We have a community who share a common belief in Christian values brought together for the common purpose of educating children in a Christ-filled environment.
Stacy Charron, Principal
