We Are on a Roll with Enrollment
Enrollment for the 2017-18 school year is still open, and we are excited—last year our enrollment increased 10%, and we are hoping to grow even more next school year. We are asking YOU to spread the word, and help us with our goal to increase enrollment! If you know of anyone, ages PreK-8 grade, looking for a high quality, AFFORDABLE, Catholic education with small class sizes, please send them our way and we will give them a tour and show them what we are all about! Contact principal Bridget Kramer or the School Office for info at communityofsaints.org. Please and thank you!
A New Challenge: Dollar for Dollar Match on Every Donation Until June 30
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our Alums & Friends & Families tuition assistance fund! We’ve changed our fiscal year from September 30 to June 30 to better align with the school’s fiscal year. That means there is little time to contribute to this year’s tuition assistance fund. Please help us make our goal!
If you give by June 30, your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar. This $50,000 Challenge Grant has been sponsored by several community members who were worried about us having to meet our annual goal in just nine months instead of the usual twelve.
Our commitment is that every family who wants a Catholic education for their child at Community of Saints will receive one. Your contribution to our tuition assistance makes that possible.
To give, you can send a check to Community of Saints, 335 Hurley Street East, West St. Paul MN 55118 or you can give online at www.communityofsaints.org/supportourschool. Thank you for your generous support!
