Dear Parents, Grandparents, Alumni, and Friends:
North Texas Giving Day is this Thursday, September 14th, and we have decided to have some fun this year as we come together to raise money for our school. As you know, St. Joseph Catholic School is committed to offering our students a path to excellence through worship, study, and service. And while academic excellence and our Catholic identity will always remain a priority, we are not beyond getting CRAZY for a CAUSE!
We have set THREE goals this year-each with unique rewards:
Goal #1-$22,000. When we meet this goal, all students will have the opportunity to participate in a CRAZY for a CAUSE dress down day. This is a day where crazy hair and crazy outfits are not just okay but encouraged. We know this will be a day our kids will never forget!
Goal #2-$25,000. When we meet this goal, your favorite teachers will get CRAZY for a CAUSE. Imagine Mrs. Durant's hair tie-dyed to match her lab coat, Mrs. Amy wearing a mustache all day, or Mr. Holmes as a Jedi! Watch our Facebook page this week for teacher videos with their CRAZY pledges!
Goal #3-$30,000. When we meet this goal, Fr. Jason and I will get SLIMED at the September PTO meeting. This is every kid's dream come true-seeing their principal get slimed!
These are big goals, but our cause couldn't be greater! If every St. Joseph School family--including faculty and staff--donates a minimum of $130, we will reach this year's BIG goal of $30,000. You don't have to do this on your own: send the donation link and invite family, friends, and neighbors to give, too!
Any donation is greatly appreciated, and every tax-deductible donation of $25 or more receives additional bonus funds from the Communities Foundation of Texas. Another way to maximize your donation is through corporate matching. Check with your employer to see if you company matches donations. You can also see the file attached below for a listing of companies with Matching Gift Programs.
There are two ways to give:
The leadership and faculty of SJCS are ready to get CRAZY for a CAUSE. Are you? Let's come together to raise much needed funds and have fun doing it! To celebrate our theme, we invite all of our students and staff to wear their craziest socks this Thursday as a reminder to be CRAZY for a CAUSE! Your continued support of our school truly means so much, and while I never thought I'd say this, I can't wait to be slimed!
