Pennies for Patients - GOAL $4000.00
Our school is thrilled to be participating in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's School & Youth Program, Pennies for Patients. Students last year raised nearly $28 million to fund breakthrough therapies to save the lives of blood cancer patients.
Funds raised enable the discovery and delivery of therapies that improve the quality of life for patients. In fact, of the 67 new cancer drugs approved by the US Food and Drug Administration since 2000.

Read the Most from Coast to Coast - 2/28
Next Friday, February 28th, we will be celebrating Read the Most from Coast to Coast at St. Paul! Read the Most from Coast to Coast is a fun Accelerated Reader challenge for all students. This nationwide quiz day will allow students to take as many AR quizzes as they can. What a wonderful way to practice valuable reading goals! Last year’s nationwide quiz record was 4,409,622. The goal this year is 5,000,000! Our quiz totals will be included in this total! Encourage your children to Read the Most from Coast to Coast!
Each classroom will be setting a goal for the amount of quizzes that they will try to take that day. Students will also be encouraged to dress up as their favorite book character for the day!
Ed Brown Corn Hole Tournament - 3/1
Ed was a valued parish member of St. Paul for over 30 years, serving on several boards and councils. His picture hangs in our school hallway in remembrance and to this day I continue to wear the wristband that was given to all school children, teachers and families in the parish when he died.
When Ed passed away several years ago the Men’s club decided to start a tuition assistance fund in his name. Ed had a passion for families that were hit by hard times and always wanted to help them with their tuition when this occurred. Over the past several years this fund has helped many families in need.
Each year the Men’s Club holds a special event in order to help fund this program. This year it was decided to have a Corn Hole Tournament. This event is being chaired by Roger Oliverio.
I hope you would seriously consider being apart of this event. Whether you are a corn hole player or not it will be a fun event to get needed funds to help families in our school and make it the success we are hoping for. Please spread the word and we hope to see you March 1st.
