FUND-A-NEED: Our Gala annually highlights a Fund-a-Need for the school with past needs being the new school/church electronic sign, the softball scoreboard, classroom furniture/equipment and library upgrades. This year, we are supporting the Mr. J Scholarship Fund which has a critical need for additional funds to support the 2017-2018 school year. The scholarship is necessary to support attendance for the development of each child through the faithful Catholic education that St. Raphael School provides. Basket Donations are still needed by April 21st as well as auction items – a weekend cabin package, sport or theater tickets, a service, etc. We are in need of donated items, or a monetary donation, to help build the baskets (if a monetary donation works best for your family, please send a check made out to St. Raphael School).
The following is the list of this year’s themed gift baskets:
● Pre-S/Pre-K: “Let’s Color with Crayola” Let’s fill the crate with Crayola!
● Kindergarten: “It’s All About Crayola & Playdough” All things for a fun creative playtime!
● First Grade: “Shopkins” Collect the characters and accessories!
● Second Grade: “Let’s Build Legos” Anything Lego!
● Third Grade: “Cookie Time” Let’s bake and eat cookies!
● Fourth Grade: “Rainy Day” Anything to help turn a rainy day into a fun and relaxing time!
