Fundraisers

The Home & School Association also oversees three major fundraisers each year, which help fund activities, such as Field Day, the Halloween Dance and Catholic Schools Week, and also provides financial support to help enhance the school, including technology upgrades, facilities improvements and special event support. For more information, download our bylaws.

Scrip/RaiseRight

Families are required to participate in Scrip, a gift card program that kicks back a percentage of each purchase back to the school while also providing a deduction on tuition costs. A true win-win that ultimately costs you nothing!

Magazine Sale

In September, we hold our annual magazine sale. Students sell magazine subscriptions, food items and other goods to raise money for the school. Students with the highest sales are awarded special gifts at our annual Prize Fest.

Trivia Knight

Teams of adults compete in a challenging game, held in early March in the school gym. Raffles, a silent auction, food and drinks make this a can’t-miss event. And don’t forget, there’s a prize for the best costume, too!
