As you know, Saint Katharine Drexel Catholic School provides a quality education to its students even in the most challenging of times. On-going fundraising is critically important to our school’s financial well-being. Last year, we were unable to host our two major fundraising events- our annual Gala and annual Race for Education. With some changes, we are so happy to be able to host both of these events during the Third Trimester. I know they are happening simultaneously, but I ask for your support of both of these important events, and your support requires different tasks.
Our SKD Virtual Gala: Please be sure to register now and join our school community for this special night. You will have the opportunity to bid on amazing class baskets, electronics, excursions, sport camp vouchers, and so much more including our amazing teacher experiences. More information is below including a personal invitation from me.
Our Race for Education: Unlike previous years, we will not be mailing letters to family members and friends. Each child has been set-up with his/her own Race for Ed Page. Please share this link with your family and friends via text, email, and social media. No amount is too small and it adds up very quickly.
Thank you for your constant support and prayers for our school. I encourage you to continue to support our work as we advance our mission to provide a transformative education steeped in academics and faith to our deserving students. There is no greater investment for forming our future leaders than a Catholic education!
Together, let us thank God for the determination, effort, support, and talents that we possess that makes our school the best that it can be! Thank you for entrusting your children to us and for the sacrifices you make each day to send your child(ren) to Saint Katharine Drexel Catholic School.
We Need You!
Be sure to join our entire school community and bid on amazing class baskets and crafts, electronics, excursions, sport camp vouchers, amazing teacher experiences and more! We need your help to raise funds for the new Learning Center that will help address specific learning needs and the funds raised from the grand prize drawing will help fix the playground.
Register early for our biggest fundraiser of the year and join us virtually on May 7 at 6:30PM. For more details visit our website: https://skdschoolgala.weebly.com
