How Can You Support the FIRE Foundation?

1. Purchase a FIRE t-shirt. These shirts are $20 and are delivered to our school in October. You can purchase a t-shirt by clicking the link below.

2. Sell Raffle tickets. The school who sells the most raffle tickets will be treated to a pep rally by the Kansas City Chiefs! The Chiefs will actually come to our school to host this fun event! Be watching your child's backpack for the raffle tickets to come home. This is the easiest way to raise money for FIRE while doing a little something for our school as well!

3. Attend the FIREBALL on October 12th at Arrowhead Stadium! You can purchase tickets at the link below. I assure you this event is something you will not regret attending!

There are many ways you can give back to this wonderful foundation who not only works to ensure ALL children are included in Catholic schools across the country, but ensures that St. Patrick School can provided the best education possible for ALL students.

St. Patrick School

The mission of St. Patrick School is to develop young men and women with active and creative minds, a sense of understanding and compassion for others, and the courage to act on their beliefs. We stress the total development of each child: spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical. Encouragement is given to students to bring their lives into conformity with God's will and plan, so that He is glorified.
