Gather cash or checks and place into the envelopes or use our online donation site. Envelopes will be turned into the office prior to the walk-a-thon.

FR. DAVID WILL BE BACK FOR JUMP FOR CASH – THE 1ST JUMP FOR CASH IS FRIDAY APRIL 20TH!
What is Jump for Cash? For every online donation your child receives, their name will be entered into a raffle and we will draw one name on each Jump for Cash day, during morning prayer. The student then jumps over our “cash line” and earns the amount of cash they are able to jump over. Cash is given to them that moment and the kids love it. So get those online donations rolling and your child might be the winner of this week’s Jump for Cash! *Please note: The deadline for online donations is 5pm the day before the Jump for Cash days

RAFFLE
The raffle is back!! The week before the walk a thon, we will have the raffle out after school for students to put in their tickets. If you ordered tickets they will be given to your student(s) on Thursday May 10th. If you requested raffle tickets for multiple children, each student will receive their portion in their classroom.

If you would like to donate to the raffle we would love any gifts cards you can give. For every $20 gift card we will give you 1 B Hour!! If you have a new item(s) you would like to donate for B Hours please contact Susan Wilsey at swilsey22@hotmail.com to see if we can use it!

SPONSOR A CLASS
A great way to support our school is to sponsor your child’s class. You can also encourage family members to do so. It’s a great way to get the kids excited and the class who earns the most money gets an ice cream party. Sponsor a Class forms went home with the donation envelopes and more forms are available in the office. Sponsor a class or two if you can!

Thanks everyone for your help and best of luck in generating donations!
