Home School Association—Update

Fundraising

Good morning!

We discussed at the most recent HSA meeting that we would be doing a “last effort” fundraiser.

In light of the fact that we cancelled two events this year due to lack of attendance, we have opted for an easy, “no show” fundraiser which allows families to continue with their busy schedules while still supporting their children’s school.

Therefore, over the next week, every family will be receiving a box of Gertrude Hawk chocolate bars to be sold.  Each box contains 48 bars of mixed chocolate.  Each bar is $1 and the box is $48.

Every SHS family will be expected to sell one (1) box of candy.  Since many families are still behind in fundraising points, Mrs Durocher has agreed to give one (1) fundraising point for each box of candy sold.  Families may request more boxes once their first box is sold.

The boxes will be coming home with the oldest or only child from each family.  It will have your name on the box and a copy of this letter will be included.  There will be an envelope for the return of the $48.

There are two chairpersons running this event and their names and contact information is as follows:

Michele Ruggier (michelabc1@aol.com)

Rosemary Marranzino (201-446-0402)

Please contact us with any questions!

Thank you for your continued support of our school and our children!

Lois Kosc, President, HSA

A few reminders and announcements …

Mega 50/50 tickets are SOLD OUT!!  Many thanks to all the hard work of Chris Guanci!

Ice Cream Social is this Thursday, June 15th at 7pm.  Come celebrate the end of the year, find out who won the $5,000 Mega Raffle and DO a good deed ….

What good deed??? Being all your OLD SHS school uniforms (the blue ones).  All articles accepted … shorts, pants, dresses, shirts, gym, etc, etc.  We are asking that you wash each article of clothing you plan to donate.  There is a Catholic orphanage and school in the Philippines who are anxiously awaiting their arrival.  They have never had school uniforms and many of the children have never had clothing of their own!!!  SHS can truly “Pay It Forward” by donating these items to this very worthy cause.  We look forward to posting pictures of these grateful children wearing our uniforms next school year.

HSA announcements to be made at Ice Cream Social.

Happy Summer!

PAY IT FORWARD ….

In an effort to “Pay It Forward” and help the underprivileged, we have found a home for our “old” Sacred Heart School uniforms!

The blue uniforms, which are being replaced, will be donated with love to a Catholic orphanage and school in the Philippines.

To that end, we are asking that you launder and bag any “gently used” uniforms.  They will be able to use all sizes and types.  Dresses, pants, tops, vest, sweaters, shorts, polos, gym shorts/pants, tee shirts, sweatshirts ….. EVERYTHING!

I will send out information about collection after Easter Break.  We will continue to collect through the early summer before we ship out.

The children at this orphanage and school are very excited and thrilled to receive our school’s uniforms.  They have very little clothes and school uniforms will be a first for them!

It’s humbling and heartwarming to be able to help such grateful children.

I sincerely appreciate the efforts you’ll make to help our “uniform drive” a success!

Wishing everyone a blessed and peaceful Easter!

Lois
