Oktoberfest is our parish festival and will be on October 4 & 5, 2019. Parish festivals require a lot of volunteers to be successful. Please consider volunteering in an area that you feel utilizes your individual gifts and talents, which greatly benefits our parish and school. It is a rewarding experience to volunteer alongside your fellow parishioners and is a great way to meet new people. We ask that each school family either buy or sell at least one Oktoberfest Raffle Ticket no matter how many students that you have at Holy Name School. Raffle tickets are $100, which if bought by our Spaghetti Dinner on August 17, will give you great odds at winning one $2,000, two $500, two $1,000 and one $20,000 drawings! Only 1,000 tickets will be sold! You can also check with friends and family and go in together to buy a ticket. Each family who buys or sells at least one ticket will get an entire week out of uniform during the week of Oktoberfest for all of their students. Raffle tickets can be purchased through the School office.

Oktoberfest Sign Up Genius

The Holy Name Oktoberfest is only a success with everyone's help! Volunteering at the event is fun and a really great way to get to know other school and church families. The link to the Oktoberfest Volunteer Sign-up Genius is now posted on the Holy Name Oktoberfest website at https://www.holyname.cc/oktoberfest, or directly at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D44AFA728A3FB6-holy1.

T-shirts must be ordered by September 16th.

Oktoberfest T-Shirt Order Form

Oktoberfest T-shirts are now available in Kids Sizes! The order form on the website has been updated (and I've attached it here for you). Reminder: orders are due to the Parish Office by 9/16.

Food Committee

The Oktoberfest Food Committee is in need of large electric roasters for our upcoming festival on October 4-5. Please consider letting us borrow yours for this huge event! The sizing would need to be greater than 18 quarts (22 quarts would be preferable). You can drop these off, labeled with your name and phone number, to the Parish Office, the School Office, or after Mass to anyone selling tickets or t-shirts. Prior to dropping it off, please contact Robin Prendergast at 317-443-6855. You will be contacted after the Oktoberfest to have your roaster returned to you. Thank you in advance for your support!

PTO News

Save the date- Tuesday, September 17th @ 7:00 in the cafeteria will be our next PTO meeting. This meeting is open to all parents, and we would love to see you there! At this meeting we will be talking about upcoming events and needs like Room Parents, Trunk-n-Treat, Breakfast with Santa, and Spirit Wear. We are looking for volunteers and new ideas for these events. We hope to see you there!

Box Tops For Education

Box Tops for Education is a major fundraiser for Holy Name School. If you haven't noticed yet, the clippable Box Tops are being replaced by images that remind you to scan your receipt. NOTE: You need to download the App and only have 14 days to scan your receipt. It is super easy! 1. Download 2. Choose Holy Name School (easiest to find by searching by zip code 46107) 3. Scan receipt. You can scan all receipts, whether you think purchased select products or not. It will automatically calculate and add the earning to Holy Name's account in real time. Since I didn't know this last month, I have a handful of new box tops and no receipts to prove it. If I did find my receipts, it would be too late (you only have 14 days!). Good News: Not all products have completed the Box Top transition, so for the next 2 months, it is possible to clip box top AND scan a receipt and Holy Name will earn double
