ANNUAL BENEFIT DINNER
It’s almost here!
This Saturday, March 5, at The Shrine Restaurant in Belleville, we will come together as a community and celebrate all the amazing things that are accomplished at Sister Thea Bowman Catholic School and help make sure that we continue to make a difference for the families we serve. This Annual Fundraiser begins with a Silent Auction/Social Hour starting at 6pm, followed by dinner at 7pm and an Oral Auction.
Thanks to those of you who returned your money for the two tickets for the Annual Benefit Dinner. As you are aware, each family is required to purchase or sell two tickets to the dinner, or pay a $100.00 fundraising fee.
Thanks, also, to those who have volunteered to donate a basket or silent auction item.
Baskets are on display in the main entrance. For those who plan to donate a basket or another item, please send it no later than Thursday, March 3.
Violinists/liturgical dancers who are part of the entertainment should be at The Shrine Restaurant by 5:30pm., dressed in black slacks, white shirts/blouses and dark shoes. Jewelry is limited to stud earrings and a plain watch. *Please remind your child that this is a privilege and only the “best-version” of themselves will be accepted.
Looking forward to seeing you all there.
***Remember, we are also selling raffle tickets for a chance to win $10,000! Only 300 will be sold at $100/ticket.
Sister Thea will again sell “Non-Uniform Coupon Books.” By purchasing a coupon book, the student or teacher can be out of uniform one day a month on a designated day. Cost of the coupon book is $20.00 per student/teacher or $30.00 per family. The students will bring the monthly coupon to school on the day designated as “Out of Uniform Day”. Coupon books can be purchased the night of the Annual Benefit Dinner or up to the beginning of the next school year. Coupon books that are paid for at the Benefit Dinner will be distributed at the beginning of the next school year. The administration will set a cut-off date for when purchasing the books will end. Administration will determine which day of the month will be the “Out of Uniform Day”. It will be the same day each month. So be sure to stop by the table at the Annual Benefit Dinner Auction and sign up for your student/s.
Our first-ever talent show was a huge success. Congratulations to all our participants and to our winners: 1st Place Winner-Malynnda Aldridge Johnson for her vocal rendition of “Glory”, 2nd Place-Sidera Ryan for the song, “Wings”, and 3rd Place-Nia Harris for the poem, “I am a Black Child”.
Mass this Friday will be led by Grade 7. We will celebrate the memory of Sts. Perpetua and Felicity. These are two young women from northern Africa who were martyred rather than deny their faith. A suggestion for discussion: who is someone they admire for their strong faith in Jesus Christ?
*Know that you are always welcomed to come and celebrate with us.
School will be dismissed at 12:30p.m. on Monday, March 7, because of our regular staff meeting. There will be breakfast, lunch, and bus service, but no Extended Day.
Please go over the telephone policy in our Family Handbook (p.22). Students are bringing phones to school without permission notes from their families. Phones will be confiscated and kept in the office until a parent/guardian picks them up.
