With spring just around the corner, we are rapidly approaching “Race” season at All Saints! This year All Saints Catholic School will celebrate it’s 11th year of our successful fundraiser program, the Race for Education.
Through the years, the funds donated to our school by family and friends from around the world have enabled us to purchase an ACTIV Board system for every homeroom, Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade. The funds have also supported a variety of other initiatives, including special recognitions for the faculty, additional funding for the fine arts program, and contributions to the general operating fund to support student learning.
Preparations are now underway for the 11th Annual Race for Education which will be held on Thursday, May 5, 2016. The multi-colored packet distributed to students provides an overview of the key information related to the event. Please mark your calendars to come and cheer on our students.
