Sociables

WHAT ARE SOCIABLES?
Sociables are parent-sponsored parties and events hosted throughout the year that build community and raise funds for the school through ticket sales. They are a great way to get to know fellow St. Catherine’s families and have fun! Like the SCM Fund, proceeds from Sociables support the school's operational costs.
 
WHAT KIND OF PARTIES OR EVENTS?
Hosts can plan a Sociable for specific levels (Infant Community – High School), for entire families, or for adults. Past parties for children include: Infant & Toddler Art Party, Fairy Tea Party (Primary), Bubble Soccer (Elementary), Harry Potter Potions Class (Elementary), American Ninja Warrior Training (Upper Elementary and AC), and Escape the Room (AC and High School).

Family-themed events have included Family Yoga, a VIP experience at the Houston Art Car Parade, Christmas Lights Tour, and Lunar New Year celebrations. In previous years, parents have attended adults-only events like Italian Wine Extravaganza, ¡Fiesta Cubana!, and game nights like Ladies Bunco and Men's Poker Night.

Party planning can be as simple as booking a bowling alley and covering the cost of food, or as elaborate as hosting a
bash for 75 in your own backyard.
 
HOW DO I PURCHASE SOCIABLES TICKETS?
Ticket sales will open on Monday, September 23, 2019 at Sociables Kick-Off. On this day, members of the community gather to purchase tickets, enjoy coffee and light bites, and visit with the co-chairs and event hosts. The kick-off begins at 7:30 AM in the gym and ends at 10:00 AM. In-person ticket sales will resume in the Welcome Center from 1:30 to 6:00 PM.
 
Online ticket sales will open Tuesday, September 24, 2019 at 8:00 AM.
