Principal's Notes

Dear Parents,

Did you realize that there are only 3 days until our Monte Carlo Night? I realize that many of our families wait until the last minute to get their reservations in, but the time is NOW to log on to the website and order your ticket, drink tickets, and chips! If you have not been to our past Monte Carlo Nights, you MUST be there this year. Fun, fun, fun for all! So you say you don't like to gamble, not a problem....you are only playing with chips! Stop what you are doing and go now to get your reservation. I look forward to seeing you at Moriarty Hall this Saturday for a night of fun!

Please keep our second graders in your thoughts and prayers this Sunday as they will be receiving their First Holy Communion at our 10:30 Mass. Mrs. Alioto has joined with our second grade parents to prepare these young students to receive Jesus for the first time. I want to thank Mrs. Alioto and our parents for helping to make this reception a meaningful and regular part of the children's and their families lives.

Summer school applications are coming in. I know that some of you are intending to send your child(ren) to our summer school, but have not yet turned in your application and fee. In order for me to know how many teachers I will need, I need to have a count of students. If you are intending on sending your child(ren) to our summer school, please send in the application this week EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO TURN IN THE FEE FOR THE SUMMER PROGRAM! Thanks for your help.

Monte Carlo Night Update

Monte Carlo Night & Silent Auction is this Saturday May 4th! We really need your support for this fun event! We are offering Vegas Style games, yummy food, great drinks, and time to socialize with your friends, while at the same time raising money to benefit the school!

What do we still need and how you can help?

· BUY TICKETS TO ATTEND – still time! An overview of the event, ticket/sponsorship information can be found on the event website at https://stannesf.ejoinme.org/montecarlo2019. You can see our growing list of silent auction donors! But, we need you there to bid! CHILD CARE IS AVAILABLE!

· SELL RAFFLE TICKETS! Please sell at least the booklet that was sent home with your child(ren) a few weeks ago, and if you want to sell more, we have them. Each student will receive one free dress pass for each book sold (max 5). Currently the 4th grade is in the lead with 2nd really close behind! We really need the Jr. High group to help out!

Contact Sarah Egdal @ sarah.egdal@gmail.com for additional books!

· DONATE GENERAL AUCTION ITEMS

Do you have friends or family members who own local businesses—hair salon, restaurant, home goods, clothing company, spa, or hotel? Their generous donation is a business/tax deduction and an opportunity for their business or service to be recognized on our event website, SAPTO Facebook page, and at the event. We are also seeking gift cards, tickets to events, and electronic items.

· Contact event chairs about donations – Roselyn Hwang @ 415-601-1119 or Ronda Lowe @ 650-346-8030

· MAKE A DONATION TO THE EVENT

· SPONSOR A GAME TABLE

Table sponsors will receive recognition on our event website, SAPTO Facebook Page, and signage on the table. You will also receive 2 complimentary tickets to the event, 2 entries into the raffle drawing and 500 in casino cash. We only have a few left, so reserve your table now!

Virtus Online

Parents! Please remember to select “SCHOOL” when registering with Virtusonline.org to complete the course “Protecting God’s Children”.

Your attention to this matter is greatly appreciated!
