CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK WRAP-UP

Catholic Schools Week was a blast! Students had a "Reverse Penny War" to raise money for The Mustard Seed Furniture Bank (We raised over $500!); enjoyed a puppet show from Steven's Puppets; watched our scouts raise the flag in front of the school; wrote uplifting and encouraging greetings to nursing home residents and thank you notes to their parents for choosing Queen of Angels; watched a vocations and career video with Father Zak, Sister Jacinta, and several parishioners and school family parents being interviewed; and many more fun activities.

This will be a day where the teachers will be receiving professional development the entire day. Student assignments will be posted on Google Classroom by 9:00 am that day. Teachers will not have office hours that day, however students will have three business days to complete these assignments.

MARKETING AND ENROLLMENT

We are always looking at new ways to improve marketing and enrollment at our school. The Catholic Schools Office and the Diocese have formed a partnership with Partners in Mission, that will involve four all-day trainings to help with this issue. If you or someone you know may be interested in helping be a part of this, please contact Mr. Wiegmann, as his information is below. The first training day is virtual and is on March 12, 2021, from 8:30 - 3:30pm.

ONLINE AUCTION POSSIBILITY AND FUTURE FUNDRAISERS

As many of you know, the pandemic has caused many changes not only in this world but at our school as well. Our normal November fundraiser, The GALA, had to be canceled due to this. Without the GALA, we are not bringing in important dollars that we use to help with renovations and upkeep of the school. Just last Summer, we were able to create extra office space as well as replace all floors in the office and elementary wing.


The school board members are investigating the possibility of a Spring Online Auction to help raise money for the school. There are many things that we can include in this auction that will not have any up front cost but can help assist in our fundraising. If you know anyone that may be interested in assisting or making donations, please contact one of our school board members or Mr. Wiegmann. School Board members are Gene Albers, Bob Geyer, Felicia Nino, Jim Hogg, Lisa Emrick, Patty Lopez, Beth Peters and Paul Reitman.


During this time, we have also had time to re-evaluate the Fall GALA. After much discussion and brainstorming, we have decided that Fall of 2021 the GALA name will be gone and we will return to calling this annual fundraiser, ROYALFEST. The date for the 2021 ROYALFEST will be October 23, 2021. Due to this, moving forward the Spring Royalfest Carnival will just be known as the Spring Carnival. If you are interested in being on the planning team for ROYALFEST, please call or email Mr. Wiegmann
