A Delicious FUNraiser
St. Bernadette PTU has teamed up with Marcos Pizza for a year long challenge as well as a monthly pizza night. Any time you order Marcos pizza throughout the month online, you can select St. Bernadette School so we receive pizza bucks. At the end of April, the top 30 schools in the area with the most pizza bucks will win money for their school. Click on the letter for more information and the flyer for ordering details and coupons.

Every 3rd Thursday of the month, we will offer a Marcos Pizza night starting next Thursday, Sept. 21st! The winning homeroom will receive a free pizza party! If you have more than one child, when ordering select all the teachers names that apply and the order will credit each child’s classroom.  Marcos Pizza Delivers! The Bay Village store delivers to Westlake; the North Olmsted store delivers to North Olmsted. 

Please look in the Friday folder for more information on the Marcos Pizza Challenge. If you have any questions, please contact Kathy Hill,
