Fundraiser for Hurricane Victims

On Friday, September 28th, our 8th graders are hosting a fundraiser for Hurricane Florence victims. Please see below for the details.

- Students and staff can donate $2 (due by Thursday) to wear jeans or uniform pants/shorts and a patriotic shirt on Friday, September 28th. No sweats, gym shorts, yoga pants, leggings, or jeans with tears.)

- Throughout the week, classrooms will be competing in a coin challenge to see which classroom can donate the most coins. All money is due by Thursday. Students will receive an "I donated" ticket on this day that allows them to participate in the patriotic dress day.

- On Friday, we will have a Fall Sports Pep Rally at 2:15. During the pep rally, the "Panther Spirit Award" will be given to the class who has the most patriotic dress combined with the most total money donated. We will also announce our parochial league fall sports participants, play games, and have other fun activities. Parents are welcome to attend!

- We will tithe 10% of our fundraising total. 7% will be given to the St. Patrick beautification fund (flowers outside of the church and school) and 3% will be given to the diocese.
