Home and School Minutes

HOME & SCHOOL COMMITTEE

Thank you for supporting your school. This what we did this year!

Gym Utilities: As our children are so blessed with a beautiful gym, we paid $16,000.00 of the utilities for the Activity Center.

Textbooks: To keep the expenses to our families down, we paid $10,000 toward textbook costs.

Copy Machine: Our school copier is funded by the Home & School Committee to help keep tuition costs down.

Teacher & Staff Incentives: We treated our teachers and staff with a little something at Christmas, as well as, during Teacher Appreciation week and for all they have contributed to make our drama production a success. We also funded minor purchases for them when they attended the teacher convention.

Field Trip Buses: All bus costs for field trips were paid by Home & School to keep the cost to families down.

Catholic Schools Week: Annually our kids participate in an event during Catholic Schools Week. Whether it’s Special Interest Day where our children have the opportunity to explore several areas of interest during one school day, or roller skating at our local roller rink! Our kids get to try fun new things. Home & School cover expenses associated with these fun days.

Advertising: Our school continues to reach new families thanks to our support of the advertising budget. We are so excited to roll out our new St. Charles Borromeo Logo next school year!

8th Grade Retreats: Every year we pay for our 8th graders to attend a valuable Catholic Retreat. This year the 8th grade class went to Camp Gray in the Wisconsin Dells and had a wonderful time.

Popcorn Days and Treat Days: We funded 10 popcorn days this year for the entire school and kids “purchased” their popcorn with “Christian Cash;” a handwritten note of a Christian deed or behavior they recently performed. These have been on display at Church throughout the year. We also provide the Open House ice cream social and yearend treats.

Misc New Projects: Over the years, we have helped raise funds for new projects for our School, such as our wonderful playground, new lights for the classrooms and new mics for the stage.

Parish Donation: Annually we donate funds to the parish for its vital and generous financial support and its dedication to our school.

*THIS YEAR HOME & SCHOOL DONATED $15,000.00 TO THE PARISH!!!!!
