Help our sister school St. Kizito!

STEP IT UP WITH COINS FOR KIDS AT ST. KIZITO SCHOOL

During this season of Lent let’s help Sister Carole finish building the Nursery and Pre-K building and equip it with solar at St. Kizito School in Lwetunga, Uganda.

St. Kizito School is the sister school of St. Catharine School. Over the past 15 years, our students have raised funds for several projects at St. Kizito’s . The donations from SCS, along with the donations from St. Catharine/St. Margaret Parish, have helped build an entire new School, a 7th grade girls dormitory, a well for freshwater, a Kindergarten classroom, a piggery and a kitchen. Currently all money raised from the SCS Uganda store benefits St.Kizito’s.

This year, St Catharine and St. Margaret’s Parish has donated money to begin constructing the Nursery and PreK Building. We would like to raise money to help finish this building equipped with solar panels.

All SCS homerooms will have a BABY SHOE BANK for any loose change you would like to donate. Once a classroom reaches $5.00, a “CROSS” with the homeroom will be placed on the schoolhouse located in the cafeteria . We will start collecting Monday February 26st thru April 23rd. Every Friday the shoes will be collected and sent to the Office and placed in a designated box. After the homeroom donations are counted, the shoes will be returned for the next week!

LET’S STEP IT UP AND HELP SISTER CAROLE

FINISH BUILDING!!
