Raise Craze Fundraiser

Happy fall! In past years the Home & School Association (HSA) has helped to organize the annual walk-a-thon. It has always been a wonderful fundraiser to start the school year and bring our school families together. Unfortunately, we were unable to hold the walk-a-thon this year, but the HSA is excited to kick-off the Raise Craze fundraiser! Raise Craze is a unique fundraiser that allows our kids to give back to the community. It is an online platform that will allow the children to ask for donations, and in return, they will pay it forward with acts of kindness. This is a great way for us to teach our children the importance of kindness and gratitude while raising much needed funds for our school. Students will spend time serving, not selling! We will also be including a school-wide service project collecting canned goods for a donation to the Divine Mercy Food Pantry.

Every student can participate in Raise Craze by completing acts of kindness (AOK), so we are aiming for 100% participation. The classroom that completes the most acts of kindness will receive a special treat at the end of the fundraiser. We are excited to see all of the ways our students choose to serve others! Please email us any pictures of your children completing their acts of kindness.

The Raise Craze fundraiser will take place from Tuesday, October 13 through Tuesday, November 3. Our goal is to raise $35,000, and 80% of the donations you collect will go toward your assessment.

Personal Attire and Appearance

All students are to be well-groomed during the school day. Uniforms are to be clean and neat and free of tears and holes. 

Girls and boys must wear hair styles that are moderate and sensible and adhere to the school guidelines. Hair color should be appropriate for the school environment. Girls may wear scrunchies, hair clips, headbands, bows, etc. in the hair (not the wrist), should be simple, without excessive ornamentation, and should be appropriate for school. Boy’s hair should be above the shirt collar, trimmed around the ears, and may not have defined lines (e.g. long on top and shaved on the sides.)

Jewelry, when worn, must be simple and not distracting. Post-type, non-dangling earrings are the only ones permitted, one per ear, worn in the lobe. No choker-style necklaces are permitted. Boys are not to wear any type of earring in school. No other body piercing is allowed. No tattoos are allowed. Make-up is not to be worn in school.           

On days when uniforms are not required, students will be given general guidelines for appropriate dress. Generally dress is to be modest at all times and neat in appearance. No inappropriate slogans or logos are permitted. If a student’s apparel is deemed inappropriate, a parent/guardian may be called to bring a replacement for the inappropriate apparel. Please note that there should be distinction between a dress-up day and a free dress day.

Parking

Please observe the no parking signs on Gillies Road, Edgmere, and Dassa Drive. Your willingness to observe the no parking signs will ensure the safety of our students and school neighbors. The police department has been issuing warnings and will be ticketing those drivers who disregard the no parking signs.
