Annual Fund

29th Campaign for St. Mary Catholic School Annual Drive

Current donations as of 12/12/17: $8,000.00+

November 6, 2017

Dear Parish and School Families and Friends,

There are many exciting things that are happening at St. Mary’s, and the purpose of this annual report is two-fold, to let you know about what is going on in the school and to ask for your financial support so that we can continue the mission of the school.

 

This year our school theme is, “A Place to Grow.” This theme was chosen by the staff as we reflected on the many ways that St. Mary Catholic School fosters growth in students. The students who attend St. Mary are encouraged to grow in faith, knowledge, leadership, and community. The educational experience that children receive at St. Mary’s lasts a lifetime. A Catholic education goes beyond academics to include both the spiritual and social development of every student, providing a basis that will allow fulfillment of personal potential, and foster service to the greater community.

 

St. Mary Catholic School is thriving. We are at (or very near capacity) in 5 grades this year! We serve families of all income levels. Over 20% of our school families meet Federal guidelines for Free and Reduced Lunches.

 

Your gifts given to St. Mary’s for this appeal will go toward the benefit of the students of the school and will help us be a place to grow for every student.

 

Last year your gifts helped to provide:

  • New (30) Android computer tablets in primary unit (for a total of 60)
  • New tile and tiled wainscoting in the PK bathrooms
  • New tile and tiled wainscoting in the bathrooms between grades 2 and 3
  • Repaired and updated plumbing in the boys’ bathroom between grades 2 and 3
  • New Social Studies materials and books in grades K-8 (including online resources)
  • New paint in many school areas
  • Creation of a new STEM classroom on the north end of the gym
  • Expanded wireless network to serve growing technology needs
  • New boiler to serve the lower unit and the administration building
  • Flooring on stage in gym
  • Tuition assistance for school families who are unemployed, or under-employed, or suffering a catastrophic family illness

 

This year your gift will help to provide:

  • Funds to continue to make improvements and upgrades in the school’s physical plant- including updates in the bell/intercom/fire alarm system and plumbing updates
  • More computers for student use- 30 more Chromebooks to serve the lower unit
  • Increased funding of the Foundation

 

The donation you make to the Annual Drive makes a difference to the children attending St. Mary’s today, and will make a difference to the students in the future.

 

Thank you!

Lauri Nauditt, Principal

St. Mary’s Catholic School
