Stuff the Stocking Delivery

Our 8th grade service team visited the Ronald McDonald House of Central Ohio on Tuesday to deliver their collection from the Stuff the Stockings project. Kindergarten through 8th Grade had a hand in sewing and decorating the stockings, as well as donating items to "stuff" the stockings.

In total, we sewed 280 stockings, collected hundreds and hundreds of toys and personal hygiene items for the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House this Christmas season.

Thank you to Nancy Davis and Sherri Johnson for helping to organize and plan this outreach project.

Thank you to our school community for supporting this service learning opportunity.

Thank You Annual Fund

Thank you to all the families that gave their gift to the Annual Fund this year. The Annual Fund allows the Home and School to provide Christmas festivities for our children. This includes the St. Nicolas Day celebration and the live Nativity scene shown below. 

Please consider giving a gift to the Annual Fund before December 31, 2022.

New Student Application Open

The application for new students is now open. The deadline to apply on time is Monday, January 23, 2023 at midnight. Applications are not processed until January 24.

(If you have a currently enrolled St. Brigid preschool student wishing to move on to Kindergarten, you will fill out a re-enrollment packet beginning January 13th. Completing this re-enrollment packet for Kindergarten will place you in the general queue for review/acceptance along with all other Kindergarten applicants. As a reminder, you will be notified via email of acceptance/wait list status on or before January 31, 2023.)

Save the Date: Free Bi-Annual Uniform & Spiritwear Exchange Feb 12, 10 AM - 1 PM

For the first time since 2020, there will not be a sign up to attend, so please add it to your calendar so you don’t forget to come! All items are free and you don’t need to donate to “shop”!


While you’re decluttering in January, please gather up the gently used uniforms that your children no longer need to donate to the Uniform and Spiritwear Exchange! Items accepted include all logo and non-logo uniform items AND spirit wear and PE uniforms. Donations can be brought into the main office after January 3rd during school hours or placed in a bin in the Hendricks Hall collection closet.

Emmaus Road Scholarship Fund: Donate by Dec 31

Thank you for the overwhelming support of the Emmaus Road Scholarship Fund, a diocesan fund that uses 100% of your donation for tuition assistance for children enrolled in our Catholic Schools.

This fund is a new state program that allows donors to receive a tax credit on their Ohio tax return up to $750 ($1,500 if married and filing jointly).

What does that mean for you?

This typically means for an individual who earns $45,000 in Ohio, he/she can expect to pay $761 in Ohio income tax. If that individual donated $750 to Emmaus by December 31, they would owe the state only $11. If the tax had already been paid, the state will issue a refund to that taxpayer. Make sure you consult a tax advisor if you are unsure of your tax liability.

We wanted to remind you to take advantage of this program by December 31, 2022 so that you will receive the tax credit reimbursement of your donation on your 2022 tax returns.
