During this 2017-2018 school year, under the patronage of Our Lady, we are truly blessed to be celebrating 35 years of Catholic Education at Our Lady of the Assumption School.
As an independent Catholic School we rely heavily on tuition and the generosity of our Parish Community to succeed. While we do receive a portion of funding from the government, we must cover our operating costs primarily through tuition and fundraising. These costs and needs far exceed the funding received.
This year the fundraising team is working towards $50,000 of fundraising. The majority of funds we raise will go towards the continued maintenance and seismic upgrades for our school (we are in the final year of the five year ‘We Do This Together Campaign’).
Please see below for all of the campaign information and updates to our fundraising goals:
Save the Date… Mark your calendars, with the following fundraising events taking place this school year!
Welcome Back BBQ – On Saturday, September 23, 2017, from 1-4pm we are holding a welcome back barbeque for all new and existing school families! We look forward to seeing new and returning families at this fun event. More details coming soon!
Walk-a-thon – On Thursday, October 5, 2017 is the Our Lady of the Assumption Annual Walk- a-thon! This annual school walkathon is essential in promoting school spirit and building community. We ask our students to collect as many pledges as possible before the walk.
Family Dinner and Dance – This year we are celebrating our 10th annual winter family dinner and dance. This family focused event is attended by over 200 guests and volunteers and includes a dinner, raffles and lively dancing. This event will take place on Saturday, November 25, 2017.
Trivia Night – We are pleased to announce the 13th Annual Trivia Night will be held on Saturday, February 24, 2018! Mark your calendars, as this event sells out early! This adult only, spring event is attended by over 200 guests and volunteers. Our fantastic MC guarantees a fun night filled with trivia questions to boggle the mind and high-energy excitement of raffles, silent and live auctions!
Catered Lunches – This year, the ever-popular catered lunches will resume every Wednesday! Watch out for the catered lunch signup forms to be sent home the first week of school. This year students can look forward to options including pizza, sushi, and pasta lunch options. Filled out forms and payments need to be returned quickly, as catered lunches will commence the beginning of October. These are only a few of the many events taking place during this school year. We humbly and graciously thank you in advance for your support of time, treasure, talent and prayers. We look forward to seeing you at the various events!
