ST. JUDE MATH-A-THON

Let's make a difference in a child's life by working as a school to fundraise for the families of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

 

So, what are the students and families at St. Paul's Catholic School going to do to help children fighting cancer?  Math!  In our efforts to raise money, the students will be completing a Math Fun-Book while asking for donations from friends and family to raise money for kids just like them who are battling cancer.

 

For additional information, see the attachment below and look in your child's Wednesday folder for the information letter as well as their Math Fun-Book and an envelope for turning in donations!

 

You can also follow this LINK to directly donate to the St. Paul's Fundraising Page by creating a fundraising page for your child! Create a login and then share this page with your friends and family via Facebook or email!

RECYCLE PROJECT

1B is excited to take the lead on a very special program in conjunction with Crayola to save our planet and keep Crayola and non-Crayola markers and highlighters out of our landfill. It’s called Crayola ColorCycle. Students and teachers will be collecting markers, highlighters and dry erase markers that are ready to be discarded by placing them in a box outside of 1B classroom. Please help support our efforts by sending your children in with any used markers and/or highlighters that you may have around the house, even non-Crayola brands! See attached letter for more details!
