Dear (Contact First Name), 

Catholic Identity Survey 
Many thanks to those who have taken the short survey. Below is the link if you would like to take the survey.
When you print out your completed page, please write your name on it and turn it into the office so we can credit you with one service hour and send your child a "Free Dress" pass. Thanks so much for helping us out!

Capital Campaign Countdown

Help Us Make a World of Difference!

                           The classroom before . . .  
                       The classroom so far!
We expanded the size of the classroom by demolishing the closet and plan to replace that space with cabinets for storage and sinks. We have installed new flooring with electrical outlets, plumbing fixtures,  whiteboard, a new bulletin board and a fresh coat of paint.  We also upgraded our handrails to comply with accessibility requirements. We still need to complete the second phase of our project to purchase and install the cabinets and sinks along the back wall and purchase appropriate classroom furniture and supplies.

Please Help Us!
Pledge donations for one or two years are still an option
to help us reach our goal of completing our classroom! Please consider making a one-time donation or a pledge which can be paid by monthly check or charged to your credit card. Help us bring St. Leander School's Science Classroom into the future.
