  • Cathcart Business Day

    Wednesday, August 24th


    Cathcart Business Day will be held in the gym from 9-11:30 a.m. and will reopen from 1:00-3:00 p.m. We have added evening hours from 6:00-7:00 p.m. but it is important to understand that we will have limited staffing in the evening


    Business Day is a one-stop event where parents can update emergency contact information, pay fees (check or cash only please), fill out volunteer paperwork, update health forms, sign up for Cathcart Parent Organization activities and much more.


    The kitchen will be open to add funds to student meal accounts (check or cash only please) and Free and Reduced Breakfast/Lunch forms will also be available. These forms must be completed each year for those who qualify. Nurse Rose will be in the Cathcart office to meet with families that have emergency care plans/504 plans and to collect medications.


    Parents will receive a “stamp card” when arriving, listing the many things to see and do at Business Day, and may bring the completed card to Mr. Anderson to learn your student’s classroom assignment for 2016-17.


    We really hope that parents and students will find this to be a great social time to chat and play and build positive anticipation for the school year. During the day, we will have recess equipment out for the students to play after you complete Business Day, but it is important that parents provide supervision since Cathcart staff will be at Business Day helping families. We are looking forward to welcoming you back for the 2016-17 school year.
