Welcome to the Joseph W. Catharine School!

Message from the Principal:

It is with great pride that I serve as the instructional leader of the J.W. Catharine School. My goal is to ensure that every scholar who attends our school is provided with a high quality education in a safe and nurturing environment. I encourage all parents and caregivers to become active members of the school community.  I strongly believe that together we will make sure that all scholars go from Kindergarten to College or Career. J.W. Catharine is on the move!

Best,

Lisa Wilmer
