|Home and School Fundraisers|
The Home and School Association sponsors several fundraisers each year.
Our fall fundraiser is Sally Foster/Entertainment Book Sales. This is our biggest fundraiser and usually raises several thousand dollars. Each family is asked to sell at least one entertainment book and participate in wrapping paper and gift sales from Sally Foster.
We sponsor a magazine drive in early November.
On Ash Wednesday we sponsor a Fish Fry which also raises over $3500 for our school. We sponsor several food booths including a booth at the Shrewsbury Fall Festival and two St. Michael's BBQ's, one in the summer and one in the fall.
Because of these fundraising efforts, the Home and School is able to contribute close to five thousand dollars to the parish budget. We also provide transportation to the art museum field trip, St. Louis Hearing and Speech Center screenings, and Care Team training for the teachers. We offer a $500 grant that teachers may apply for if there are non-budget items they are needing for their classroom. We provide over $1000 to the eighth grade class for graduation. In addition to these larger items, we pay for several smaller non-budget items including lunches for the teachers on teacher appreciation day.
