Welcome to Cathcart Elementary school. At Cathcart, our mission is to work together to help every student become the best they can be in a safe, friendly, and fun community. We value what every student and every family brings to our learning community. We believe that all students can learn, and at Cathcart we foster learning and success for every student.
We encourage you to take an active role in your child’s education by working with us in partnership. Working as a team will allow us to provide the best education for every student.
