BECAUSE OF GALA……
Our school community is bonded and supported because of the generosity of our Parishioners, Parents and Staff!
Reminder to purchase your raffle tickets to the biggest fundraiser of the school year! Tickets will be on sale after all Good Shepherd masses this weekend, September 21st and September 22nd. Don’t miss out on your chance to win 2 tickets to our Gala celebration taking place on Saturday, October 26! The winner will be drawn September 23rd and contacted by phone and published in the newsletter next week!
Each year Star of the Sea Students, along with the help of some amazingly gifted parent artists, create Class Art Projects to be auction off at Gala. Every year at this time, we ask for monetary donations from our school families to cover the costs of three Class Projects. A typical donation is $25 but any amount will be gratefully accepted. A Class Project donation form will be sent home with your oldest child today.
