School Fundraisers & Volunteering
St. Katharine Drexel Elementary hosts one major school fundraiser during the year: the SKD Walk-A-Thon.
The Walk-A-Thon is a time for families to come together in fun, exercise, community spirit, and to raise funds for the school. In addition to classroom supplies, technology, playground equipment, and seasonal events, the money raised is used for various school community events such as Pastries with Parents, Family Movie Night, and Grandparents’ Day.
To make a donation to St. Katharine Drexel Elementary, please contact the Bishop O'Gorman Catholic Schools Central Office: 605-335-6557
Parents and the parish community are invested in and committed to the education of the students. Parents choose to send their children to St. Katharine Drexel School, and the parish continues to support the school financially, because it is a family-orientated environment with strong academics and faith formation. St. Katharine Drexel School parents are actively involved in their child’s education. As parents are called upon to help with driving for field trips, facilitating holiday parties, volunteering to read in the classrooms, or even supervising/serving in the lunchroom, they continually reinforce the values and mission of the school.
