A special thank you to Mrs. Capostagno who will serve as our Teacher Rep and to Mrs. Rodriguez who will serve as our Non-Teaching Rep.  

One of the key roles of Council is fundraising. In past years, generous donations from our parents have allowed the school to fund many school initiatives across all grade levels. Most recently, fundraising contributions have enabled our school to purchase a modernized sound system, technology for every grade (i-pads, Chromebooks and document cameras), Physical Education equipment, outdoor equipment for every class, materials for events (Christmas Family Night, Pancake Tuesday, Graduation) and materials to update our Prayer Garden.  We were also able to support Faith-based initiatives that directly helped our own community. This year’s fundraiser will focus on continued enhancement of outdoor equipment, continued updating of the devices that students use, Virtual Assemblies for our students that will focus on well-being, and new educational experiences or needs that may arise during this uncertain year.

Any donation amount is welcome! Even the smallest donation makes a difference, and all donation amounts are confidential. All donations will gladly be received beginning from October 15th and throughout the month of November.  The link will remain open until November 30th.   Thank you in advance for your contribution!
