Volunteers Wanted for the Fish Fry.

Please consider volunteering to be part of the planning committee for the fish fry dinner. The group has several planning meetings before the dinner takes place in April. This is a needed event for our school and a great event for the community as we welcome more than 1400 people to dinner on the day of the fish fry.

Please keep in mind that SWS has about 100 families to make all of our event s happen successfully. We truly are a family community working together to make our school great.

SCHOOL SWEEPSTAKE

Tickets went home in all backpacks last week. Good luck in selling these to all of your friends and relatives over the holidays.  The drawing will take place during Catholic Schools Week at the end of January.  Great cash prizes.

This is one of our 3 budget fundraisers so each family is required to sell. K-8 have 30 tickets/$300 and preschool has 5 tickets/$50.

An Irish Starry Night – Saturday, March 16
Donations and reservations are now being accepted. This event is fun for the young parents and guests and for the older supporters, parishioners, and friends of SWS.

Group events sign-ups are needed! Ideas include hayrides, drinks for a class of parents at your home, a camping event, a bonfire, or a wine tasting night. People sign up at the Starry Night and come to the party at a later date. These events can be adult focused or kid-focused.

Live Auction Items are being sought! Game tickets, theater tickets, vacation homes, trips, sporting or fishing packages, golf days and ladies nights out are very popular.
