Thanks to the ‘Me to We’ Team for organizing our Lenten Project to support OK Clean Water.  We have raised 2716.00 dollars and surpassed our goal of 2500!  



April Pow Wow

Our April Pow Wow is on Wednesday, April 13th at 1:15pm.  Students are encouraged to wear house shirts or colours.  The students and teachers are all very excited about getting points and building spirit for their House.

Next School Year

It is that time of year where we begin to plan for next year!  We ask that you please inform the office if your child is not planning to attend St. Kateri Tekakwitha next year.


SKT Parking and Dismissal

A friendly reminder for our SKT community that cars are not permitted in the bus zone at the beginning or end of the day during arrival and dismissal of our students.  Those times are 8:45-9:15am and 3:30-4:00pm.  In addition please refrain from waiting in your car in the staff parking lot during dismissal time.  Please park on Beausejour and walk to pick up your child in order not to block parked cars.

Parents  please ensure you have a backup plan for the times when you may not be able to pick up your child by 3:45pm.
