MERCY

St. Apollinaris School parents, along with St. A’s faculty and staff, make up MERCY (Making Education Reach Catholic Youth). Together, we are dedicated to strengthening our community, promoting the ideals of a Catholic education, and contributing a minimum of $115,000 to the school through fundraising events.

MERCY contributions fund new programs in the arts, language and technology, as well as capital projects, scholarships, and the gap between tuition and the cost of our children’s education. Just five years ago St. A’s did not provide regular Spanish or art classes, but now we do thanks to parent participation. MERCY funds raised from the last two years are contributing to the purchase and installation of our new HVAC system, bringing new heating and cooling systems to the classrooms.

To achieve our fundraising goals, each family is required to volunteer 30 hours each school year.  In the coming school year, the hours will be equally split into to two categories:

 

  • 15 “A” hours for fundraising events, which include Gala and Auction, Walkathon, Pizza Tuesdays and selling scrip. Mark your calendars now:
    • October 21, 2017 – Gala
    • May 18, 2018 – Walkathon

 

  • 15 “B” hours for school growth and child development. Examples include field trips, coaching St. A’s sports, preparing materials at home for class activities and helping in the classroom

 

For the 2017-2018 school year, we are continuing to use SchoolSpeak for signing up and tracking volunteer hours.

Every single family is critical to our school’s success. With your contribution, we make a real impact on our children’s future by enhancing the learning environment, which allows our children to develop their unique talents and gives them the proper foundation to become amazing adults.

 

MERCY leadership is excited to work with you to continue to strengthen our school community.
