Help Decorate Our Tree

We would like to invite you to help decorate our school family Christmas tree! A few years ago, we began a new tradition of a school family Christmas tree. We ask each family to share a Christmas ornament for our tree. We will return the ornaments after Christmas. The ornament should have your family name on it and can be handmade or bought. Please send your ornaments in to help decorate our school family tree.

Does Your Company Offer Volunteer Grants?

Volunteer grant programs, also known as “Dollars for Doers” programs, are corporate giving programs created to encourage volunteerism in communities where employees live and work. Through these programs, companies provide monetary grants to organizations where employees volunteer regularly. Please take a moment and ask if your employer participates in a Volunteer Grants Program. Your time and talent at St. Rita School could turn into dollars for our school! Questions? Feel free to contact Joanne Bruno by email.

Learning Beyond the Classroom
