St. Monica Catholic School has been one of the few schools in the state that has offered in-person learning since October 2020. Instead of waiting for others to start guiding schools for the 2020-21 school year, St. Monica’s leadership and staff worked tirelessly throughout the summer to ensure that a plan was in place for a safe and viable school re-open in the Fall.
A non-negotiable component of that plan was that students should continue to be provided a well-rounded, flexible and enriched curriculum, and our teachers would need additional support to ensure students were being served for their individual academic needs while following the health and safety protocols put in place by our local health department.
St. Monica Catholic School is currently the only accredited Archdiocesan and Catholic Classical Liberal Arts School on the Eastside. Our specialists and para-educators partner every day with our educators to ensure a rich, engaging, and holistic curriculum.
Each child has many gifts, and it is our goal to help each child develop the skills, talents, and interests given to them by God. We can do this best with the overarching support and under the adults’ supervision in our school.
The Make a Difference portion of this year’s St. Monica Auction will support the Paraeducator Team at St. Monica Catholic School. This amazing team helps our homeroom teachers daily. These funds will show our gratitude for the value they add and the creativity they share while enriching our children’s education. All funds collected through this endeavor will go towards the following:
Salaries / Stipends (approx. $150,000)
• On-site substitute, math, and grammar teacher
• Full Time Kindergarten & First Grade Paraeducator
• Full Time Preschool Support and Paraeducator
• Full Time K-5 Partner Teacher
• Full Time K-5 Paraeducator
• Full Time Middle School Math Paraeducator
• Part Time Technology/Marketing/Admissions Support Partner
As schools everywhere prepare for an uncertain Fall, we hope that we can continue to provide a high level of support, flexibility, and certainty to our families that St. Monica Catholic School will remain open and accessible to all families in our Seattle and Eastside communities.
