'Tis the season to Fund-A-Need!
Each school year brings its own unique financial challenges and we want to be transparent about such needs as the arise. With your help, we can continue to give our children the experience they have come to expect in such a supportive and nurturing community.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and your generosity!
1) Lockers for the Preschool (80 lockers ~ $8,000)
The Fire Marshall came and inspected the preschool in preparations for expansion and due to the combustibility of our current cubbies for our preschoolers, determined that we need new metal lockers for our little tykes. Your support in helping our preschoolers keep all of their gear (especially in winter) in one place will go a long way to making our preschool staff's holiday season and year!
2) Help increase the Marketing Budget ($10,000)
Did you like our new billboard? Are you excited to get the word out about STM and help drum up interest for the coming Catholic Schools Week Open House? If so, Mr. Olsen needs your assistance. With a limited budget, it is difficult to extend our school's reach to where it needs to be. Each newspaper Ad costs an average of $600. Each Billboard costs about $1,200 for a four week run. Postcards for an open house can range from $1,500-$3,000. A new video highlighting STM for the website, Youtube, etc. will cost around $3,000. STM has been historically poor at telling its story to the community that surrounds us. Help Mr. Olsen change that trend and help him have the resources to do so.
