Spring Gala Event
The Spring Gala Event is our school’s largest fundraiser and takes place in April each year. It is an evening affair for adults, featuring a silent auction, short live auction and dinner. In addition to raising general school funds, a special fund-a-need is identified. In the past, these funds benefited playground equipment, SmartBoards, and WiFi. There are even special art projects made by our kids that are featured and auctioned during the event!
Parents from all grades work together to secure auction items, plan the menu and entertainment, decorate the gym, create raffles and promote the event. All types of volunteer opportunities are available.
All school parents and parish community members are strongly encouraged to attend.
The Spring Gala 2018 will take place Saturday, April 7, 2018.
Labels for Education
The Labels for Education program is winding down. At this time, only UPCs with the Labels for Education logo are accepted and redeemable for points. The process of removing the logo has begun and there will be a limited number of products that contain these labels in stores through August 1, 2017. Once all Labels for Education logos have been removed from the products, UPCs will no longer be accepted.
If you have any labels to submit, please do so by September 30, 2017. We will make one final submission this fall before the program comes to an end.
