Annual Soup Bowl
Soup Bowl tickets went out in this week's Tuesday Envelopes. There are a total of 5 tickets enclosed per family. This is a warm delicious way for our school to raise money while also sharing talents and generosity of our Local Restaurants!

We ask that you please return payment for your tickets (or any unsold tickets) no later than Tuesday, January 28th!

(Please note that we will be in need of Soup Servers for both shifts as well as donations of home baked goodies for the dessert table.) Anyone who brings in homemade baked goods for the bake sale will receive 1 Fair Share hour in total.

Thank you in advance for your continued support of our school!

We look forward to seeing you all on the 31st.

There will be several opportunities for families to earn their 3rd quarter Fair Share hours. Sign up genius links are posted below in the Gator Bites for volunteer opportunities. We will be looking for approximately 40 volunteers, (i.e. servers, runners, soup pick up, clean up, bake sale, and ticket sales) to name a few. This fundraiser is a fun and tasty way to support our school and to enjoy the fellowship with parishioners and SMCS families and friends. Ticket sales have begun and will be sold after all Masses the weekends of January 11th & 12th, 18th & 19th and 24th & 25th, 2020. Tickets are also available for purchase in the School and Church offices. There will be two seatings offered, 12pm - 2pm (lunch seating) and 5pm - 8pm (dinner seating). Tickets are $13.00 each or (2) for $25.00. Tickets will also be available at the door for $14.00 each. Admission includes samples of soup from local restaurants, bread and butter, and water or tea.

Soft drinks (i.e. soda, bottled water, etc.) will also be for sale by the 8 th grade class for their upcoming class trip. The PTO will also be sponsoring a bake sale.
