The students of SJS need your help! We are in the midst of preparing for our SOAR Development Dinner which is on November 23rd. Funds raised at SOAR our vital to our school, our students, and our community. You can have an impact on our efforts whether or not you attend. We are in need of sponsors, auction items, monetary donations, and gift cards. Any donation can be forwarded to the school office.


Currently on our auction site (http://bidpal.net/soar2019), you can make a donation of any amount or purchase a chance to win a Pit Boss Pellet Grill, LG 4K 55″ TV, or an Apple Watch! Only $20 for a chance to win one of these super cool items. Purchase a chance on the auction site today! Winners will be drawn at the event, but you need not be present to win. You can also bid on silent auction items on the website beginning in early November. Again, any gift will help us continue to do great things at SJS. Thank you for spreading the word to family and friends.


We are in GREAT need of high school or college volunteers to work the event. Students can sign up on iVolunteer (https://stjamesseton.ivolunteer.com/event_136) or contact Mrs. Howard at thoward@sjsomaha.org for more information.
