The rising cost of Catholic education, and the desire to keep tuition amounts reasonable, necessitates fund-raising activities for our school. In the growing pressure from our economy today to “do more with less,” it is unfortunately true that the way that many schools and communities are doing this is to eliminate the programs that they deem as not being essential. This often means that many experiences and opportunities for our students will be lost as well. Much like the students they serve, schools must be nourished and sustained in order to survive. That’s why fundraising is so important. The ability to raise extra funds successfully just may be the very lifeblood of our school.
Information regarding our fundraisers will be sent home periodically via the e-newsletter. An overview on some of our annual fundraising events can be viewed online in the Sts. Simon & Jude School Handbook.
