Back-to-school supplies go on sale soon after the 4th of July! Please check store advertisements for fantastic sales!

If you shop at Office Depot, tell them you are a Catharine Blaine family and they will make a donation back to the school. Thank you!

For safety and performance reasons, it is important that every student in K-5 have at least one pair of reliable tennis or athletic shoes. NO flip flops, clogs, boots, plastic, or open-toed shoes. These increase the risk of slips, trips, stubs, falls and/ or injury in PE and on the playground.

Please remember to write your child’s name on all clothing, backpacks, lunchboxes, and water bottles!! A Rub-a-Dub (laundry-proof) marker works well.
