- Staff Recognition & Support
Each month we recognize our staff in a special way to show our
support and appreciation. Some past examples of these are: Staff
Appreciation Day; giving SCRIP as gifts during the holidays;
providing pizza and other luncheons during open houses; giving
teachers a classroom allowance to offset personal expenses for
our children (bulletin board materials, stickers, etc.).
- Fund Raisers
SCRIP is a fund-raising program where families order gift certificates
for local and national retailers and restaurants at face value.
The school then purchases the gift certificates at a discount.
The difference in price is split 50/50 between the school and
each family who participates, based on their order. Each family's
profit goes toward their school tuition cost.
Our magazine and candy sales top the list for our fund raisers
The money raised during these events goes toward the educational
extras not normally available through the regular school budget
for our children. Past fund raisers have provided item such as
televisions, video cassettes recorders, computers, printers,
software, risers, overhead projectors, PA systems for concerts,
library materials, tables and chairs for various classrooms,
and playground equipment. We welcome your ideas and input regarding
new fund raisers.
- Social Events
We sponsor several social events throughout the year at all three
centers. These give our school community a great chance to build
closer relationships between parents, teachers, and students.
These activities are an opportunity to get together and have
FUN. See our calendar for a complete list and dates.
- Educational Programs
With funds that the Parent Association has raised, our schools
have been able to begin programs such as the FOSS Science program,
programs for assembly, music, sacramental, and staff development,
and currently our new Math Series program.
Get involved! It's the best thing you'll do all year.
