Fundraisers: In order to keep the cost of tuition as low as possible, St. Mary’s chosen to have three yearly fundraisers whose revenue supplements the yearly budget and allows parents not to pay the “full cost” for their child(ren)’s tuition.
The fundraisers are:
- Jog-a-thon (held in October);
- Selling of Christmas trees (held at the end of November/December) and
- The Auction (late January/early February).
All three fundraisers need the support of each family enrolled at St. Mary’s Parish School. In addition to the financial family benefit of keeping tuition as low as possible another benefit that might be even greater is to help families “connect” with each other in meaningful activities.
Being involved in fundraising projects provides a powerful support for adults. However, if a family cannot nor desires to participate in the fundraisers, they do have the option of “buying out” of the individual fundraisers. For more information, contact the school office and/or see the financial forms.
