Come and Feed your Soul

We are excited to have the opportunity to once again enjoy Kountry Karnival! Planning is underway for a special food festival. As in the past, we will enjoy KK food booths in what we are calling a Taste of SMG! The event will only be possible with your support! The good news is we have plenty of opportunities for everyone to help! From volunteering to donations, this is the time for the school family to work together supporting 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. The different grade levels have been paired up to work together and the Room Coordinators will be in touch with each class regarding the details on 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!

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 2-3, 2021. 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! The 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, playground areas, and the Outdoor Learning Center & Garden; 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 donating to the event.


· Food Booth Sponsor $1000 Includes: An advertisement 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, instilling strong moral values to students in Arlington and surrounding areas.


Amy Utendorf, M. Ed.
