Saint Katharine Drexel School Initiative
The goal of the Saint Katharine Drexel School Initiative is to provide all families in the Diocese of San Jose access to the highest quality, affordable Catholic education, while increasing our strong Catholic identity. Bishop Patrick J. McGrath, John A. Sobrato,and John M. Sobrato are so committed to this goal that they have joined their resources in a “Drexel Scholarship” fund for the seven schools in the Saint Katherine Drexel School Initiative (SKDI). Resurrection School is an SKDI school.
We are offering a $3,000 scholarship for the 2013/14 and 2014/15 academic year to all new students in Kindergarten through 8th Grade at any of the SKDI schools between now and the beginning of the next school year. Additionally, a $500 referral bonus will be awarded to the family that recruits any new enrolled student for one of the seven SKDI schools during this period.

Recently, a Nearpod team from Florida visited Mr. deTorres in his 5th Grade class. Nearpod is an application designed for mobile devices to make classroom presentations and quizzes more interactive. Mr. deTorres is a Nearpod super-user. He and his students use the application on their ipads and Nearpod filmed our 5th Grade class using the app so that other schools could see it in action.
This is one of the videos Nearpod created with our 5th Grade class: Nearpod video

Resurrection School students were found walking around in their stocking feet on one of the world's largest maps depicting the Pacific Ocean. The National Geographic map measures 26' x 35' and took up close to half of the floor space in the school gym, providing an opportunity for student explorers to engage in an interactive experience and activities in the study of geography. more
Community Outreach Projects The school's first community outreach project this year was a response to an urgent plea from InnVision for toilet paper. Within a week, a little over 490 rolls of toilet paper were collected and delivered to those in need. Thank you Res families! Gently used or new Halloween costumes were also collected in October for families supported through InnVision. Over 100 costumes were delivered to InnVision as a result of this drive, and over 100 children celebrated Halloween with a smile on their face! During Thanksgiving, over 300 lunches, cards, and gifts of thanks were made for families at InnVision, along with placemats for our local convalescent homes. For Valentine's Day, over 100 decorated goodie bags filled with cards, candy, and origami flowers made by our 5th graders, were delivered to InnVision along with baked goods, milk, and paper supplies to create a wonderful Valentine's Day Party.
