  • Provide a $5 donation to offset the cost of soft drinks/water for the evening - DUE Jan 20th.
  • Purchase two tickets ($9 each) for both fish fries (4 tickets total for $36). More tickets are always available in the school offices.
  • Help volunteer at the fish fries - this is easy and fun and is a great way to log some service hours!
  • Spread the word - a flyer is included in the Purple Folder for you to share with others!

School Choice Scholarship (Voucher) Forms

If you receive the School Choice Scholarship, please print, sign, and date the form included in the Purple Folder this evening. It is an updated award letter from the Department of Education. Please return the completed form in the provided envelope to the school office by Jan 14th. As always, if you have any questions, please contact me! Thank you!

Want to help the school earn some free money?

We have just the opportunity for you! Tonight, each student is receiving a booklet that contains eight (8) cards which require an address. All the families have to do is give the name and address of family members/family/ friends and return the cards to the school office. When the students return the booklet with at least 7 of the address cards filled out, they will receive a stuffed animal. Nothing else to it! The school receive $5 per booklet that is returned. These address cards are then mailed out with information for magazine subscriptions, but there is NO obligation to purchase! Thanks!

A Note from Mr. Lemen:

On Monday, February 1st, we will be having our Pancakes with Parents event to kick off Catholic Schools Week. This breakfast will take place in the cafeteria and gymnasium of Central Campus. All students who are normally dropped off by parents at East Campus are asked to be dropped off at Central Campus on this day. We are hopeful that all parents will stay for breakfast and the mass that is to follow, but understand that this event may not fit in to everyone's morning. Any students who typically ride the GJCS buses to 10th Street School can still do so, as our bus will pick them up and shuttle straight to Central Campus. All Central Campus routines will stay the same.

In an effort to keep the flow of the parking lot as safe and efficient as possible, parents are asked to enter Central Campus through the drive behind the school, off of Lechner Lane. If parents do not wish to have breakfast, they may follow the normal car line (attached) and exit back onto Lechner Lane. Those parents who wish to stay for breakfast may park in any of the parking spaces available in the main and upper parking lots.

Parents and students will be walking through the parking lot to enter the school, so please be mindful as you travel through.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
