The Eagles Nest was a BIG HIT at last year’s SOAR Dinner!
The SOAR Committee is asking for donations of gift cards to fill our Eagles Nest for this year’s dinner. We are still in need of silent auction items and if you have any baskets lying around we would love to take them off your hands too. Please forward all donations to the school office, be sure to mark SOAR. Thanks to everyone for helping to make this year’s SOAR Dinner one to be remembered!!!
HyVee Cash For Students
HyVee is once again sponsoring the Cash for Students program. HyVee gives $1.00 to SJS for every $250.00 spent at HyVee. We are once again collecting HyVee cash register receipts dated September 1st thru December 31st. Tell your family to start saving those receipts!
ONLINE PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCE SIGNUP

~Fall Fundraiser reminder:
The fall fundraiser orders are due to your child’s homeroom teacher on Tuesday, September 13th. ONLINE SALES WILL ALSO RUN UNTIL SEPTEMBER 13th as well, even though it mentions an earlier date. That means there are only 4 days remaining to earn money for school improvements. Show your friends and family the brochures this weekend at those football parties. Also, here are a few reminders:
- Remember to enter your prize code on the order form if you sold more than 15 items. Please also enter a cell phone number for a delivery day text reminder.
- Please do not send cash or checks to school with the orders. There is no need to pre-collect money. We will ask for one check per family, if possible, at time of order pick-up on Wed Oct 12th at St Elizabeth Ann Parish Center. We hold the check for 2 weeks to allow for delivery of your items to your customers.
- There is also a cash donation option if that is a preferred method of participation. See the insert in the packet. The donation is 100% profit for our school.
