Flower Sales for Mission Trip - Flyer attached
April showers bring May Flowers - and what gardener doesn't love flowers! St. Catherine's Youth Mission Team are currently taking orders for flowers, vegetable plants, hanging baskets, and other beautiful plants. Orders will be delivered on Wednesday, May 10th, before Mother's Day, so they would make a great gift for Mom or the gardener in you!
To place an order, please download the order form which is attached to this Dialogue and return the form along with the payment to the school office. Orders can be placed through April 28th. All proceeds will support our summer mission team. Many of our St. Catherine alum are participating in this trip. Thanks for your support!!
Save money on your tuition bill!
Looking to save money on your next tuition bill and raise money for the school? Many school families already participate in our TRIP program (Tuition Reduction Incentive Program) and earn back monthly rebates towards their tuition. Families order gift cards through the Great Lakes Scrip Program and receive back a rebate percentage on each card which is then applied towards tuition. We would love to add new families to this program!
Create your own online TRIP account by signing up at https://www.shopwithscrip.com/ and place an order for next week to start earning money towards your tuition. The code to create an account is 2CL3966D181. Due to school being closed on Monday, April 17th, our next TRIP order will be placed on Monday April 24th. Please have your TRIP order payment in the school office by 9:00 AM on Monday, April 24th. You can also reload current scrip cards and shop for ScripNow cards online, anytime.
Spring Shoe Drive
Hello School Families! Please join our high school youth in collecting gently used, worn, and new shoes for our Shoe Drive this spring! There is a box in the school lobby to collect the shoes. The collection will run through June 14th. Thank you for your support!
Peace and Blessings!
