Raise Craze Fundraiser
Click for Raise Craze instruction flyer

Welcome to our Raise Craze fundraiser 2021! This is a unique way for us to raise money for our school while making an impact in our community.

During this fundraiser, students ask friends and family for donations via the online Raise Craze platform while paying it forward serving others. What a great way for us to teach our students the importance of kindness and gratitude while raising much-needed funds! Students will spend time serving, not selling.

Visit our registration link to get started. 

  1. Enter your student’s name.
  2. Select at least three acts of kindness.
  3. Enter five to ten email addresses of potential supporters.

Raise Craze will send all emails, reminders, and thank you notes. Raise Craze will never share your email with third parties or use it for marketing.

Our fundraiser at a glance:

  • Dates: September 27 through October 16
  • Our goal: $25,000
  • Schoolwide service projects: Collecting non-perishable food items for the Divine Mercy Food Pantry
Every student can participate in Raise Craze by completing acts of kindness (AOK), so we’re aiming for 100% participation.

Nurse's Corner

It looks like we will be navigating this school year with COVID again. Please continue to help us keep our school community safe and healthy by following these simple steps:

  • Complete a health check on your child each morning before school. Do they feel warm? Perhaps check their temperature. Do they look ok? Are they sleeping well? Do they have any cold symptoms that aren't allergy related (cough, runny nose, itchy watery eyes, congestion?)
  • Keep your child home if they are not feeling well and consult with your child's pediatrician.
  • Inform the school if your child needs a COVID test.
  • If your child is exposed to someone that has developed COVID they will need to stay home and quarantine if they are not vaccinated.
  • If your child has been exposed to someone that has COVID they do not need to quarantine if they have been vaccinated. You should have them continue to wear a mask in public and monitor them for symptoms for ten days.

Please send in a copy of your child's vaccination card if they have received the COVID vaccine. Thank you!
