Come and Feed your Soul

We are excited to have the opportunity to once again enjoy Kountry Karnival! Planning is underway for food, bounce houses, confetti eggs, and the vendor show.

A successful KK will only be possible with your support! The good news is there are plenty of opportunities for everyone to help! From volunteering to donations, now is the time for our school family to work together to support St. Maria Goretti Catholic School and our children.

It is an easy way to complete the 20 volunteer hours needed this semester and the five in-person hours required for Kountry Karnival. Grade levels have been paired to work together and the Room Coordinators will be in touch with each class with the details of how you can support them. A Sign Up Genius has been created listing all of the volunteer and donation needs. Stay tuned for more details from your Room Coordinators, the Trojan Times, and Friday folders.

If there are any questions, please reach out.

Thank you in advance for your support!

Become a Booth Sponsor

Dear Community Partner,

St. Maria Goretti Catholic School, a 501c3 non-profit school (Tax ID# 48-1286678) and an Arlington institution for over 66 years, will host our Kountry Karnival on October 1-2, 2022. Though this year’s event has been tailored to the current normal, we are excited that we can offer a Taste of SMG to continue one of the school’s most exciting and major fundraisers of the year! Our Kountry Karnival provides much-needed funds for our school, which helps us to: provide tuition assistance to our school families, make improvements to school technology, and our playground areas, help keep tuition low and provide opportunities for professional development and resources for our teachers, all directly benefiting our students. This year, we hope to raise over $20,000 at our event!

Sponsorships and donations are vital to our success. We invite you to be part of this event as a Food Booth Sponsor or by donating to the event.


· Food Booth Sponsor $1000 This includes: An advertisement for your company at the booth and 4 free meals


· We welcome donations of any amount.

Thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, we can continue to provide an excellent Catholic education, by instilling strong moral values in students in Arlington and surrounding areas.


Amy Utendorf, M. Ed.
