Fundraisers are a vital part of our school’s financial success each year. None of these fundraisers can be successful without the participation of our families and parishioners. Run completely by parent volunteers, our Fall Fundraiser, Auction and Spring Festival are our biggest fundraising events of the year. There are a number of year-round fundraisers that also significantly impact our bottom line. The best part of these programs is that they are all "free," meaning you are raising funds for our school doing the same shopping you are already doing.
As part of your Contributed Service Participation Tuition agreement, parents can choose to participate in this program or opt out for a specified donation. When you choose to participate, you are committed to generate a net profit of $250 each school year to the school through your Scrip purchases.
Visit the Scrip page to read about the different ways you can meet your Scrip Commitment.

Ink/Toner Cartridges & Cell Phone Recycling Your used ink jet, laser jet and other printer cartridges, as well as old cell phones, can be dropped off at school. Unfortunately, not all cartridges can be re-manufactured which means they cannot be refilled and resold. Please check the current list of qualifying items. You will find Funding Factory recycling boxes clearly marked for ink jet, laser printer or cell phone recycling (3 boxes) in the hallway as you enter the school from the arcade. We ask that you place just the qualifying cartridges and phones in these boxes, and put any packaging in the paper recycling box found adjacent. This will save our parent volunteers lots of time! Thank you.
