On the short agenda will be what to do for entertainment and any other new activities or games we can incorporate. As usual, your ideas are the lifeblood of another successful campaign.

Dear SMS Parents, Thank you again for your interest and participation in our first ever St. Mary School fall Tech Drive. A couple of people have inquired about the incentive structure. The incentives are cumulative. If a child gathers $50 in pledges that child receives the punch card for the $20 level, the pajama day at $30, the out of uniform and salad bar at $40 and the firetruck drawing and class entry for sidewalk chalk day for the classroom at $50. One addition to the pajama day is that a student can opt to wear a team / sports jersey of their choice if they choose not to wear pajamas. Our fundraiser ends Monday, October 5th so be sure to reach out to friends, family and co-workers to ask for their support. I have emailed another copy of the pledge form and parent letter this morning. It is important that SMS is able to afford and upgrade our technology needs and your support is greatly appreciated, Sincerely, Jay Askin Development Coordinator SMS

Dear SMS Parents, Our development drive for fall will be kicking off soon. Keep your eyes peeled for our first effort which will focus on technology! We have begun the process of upgrades and have made great strides with new computers and Chromebooks but there is more to do. A letter will be coming home in Thursday folders that will explain what program we will run this fall to help us reach our goals. Other opportunities to help are available as well. Our Growing Tree gold leaf project has been a great resource allowing families past and present to support our school while leaving behind their name and note of support that will be displayed at the SMS entrance for generations to come. If you have an hour or two per month to help with this project the return reward to the school can outpace any other fundraising drive that we do. This is a great project and opportunity for reaching out to family with connections to SMS and sharing a leaf. Finally, our 2015 Paddy Gras Live and Silent Auction event set a new high mark for financial support generated for our school. It is a great team to be part of and we have fun with it along the way. This year we will be holding our event on March 12th 2016 so please be sure to save the date! Parents, everyone can help support our most important fundraiser by acting as a silent or live auction scout right now. Make a note to talk about our event and ask people and businesses if they would consider making a monetary or item donation after the holidays. Thanks again for your time and consideration. Jay Askin Development Team St. Mary School
