Tuition alone does not cover the cost of educating a child. Our Lady of the Assumption School relies on the generosity of parents and benefactors to make up the difference, and provide all the extras that the school prides itself on. Funds raised during annual events make it possible to continue school programs within a faith filled environment.The Assumption Parent Association has as their primary mission raising funds for the school. All Our Lady of the Assumption School families are expected to support school fundraisers by donations, attendance and work at the events. Each year, the APA Board leads and directs three major fundraisers. These are:
FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT (Saturday, November 5 , 2016)
This year we are changing things up and hosting a Family Movie Night on Saturday, November 5. Plan to join us as we gather on the back school lawn and enjoy a movie and barbeque together. We will still be selling those famous raffle tickets, with a grand prize of $1000! Our movie will be Mary Poppins, a family favorite with great music. Student entertainment will still be included, and we will announce the raffle winner also. We cordially invite your family to join us!
This popular event is usually held at a local hotel in the Spring. Recent Dinner Auctions have been extremely successful, raising funds for school technology, library books and textbooks. All families are asked to sell raffle tickets, donate at least one item for the auction, and support the event by attending. The exciting Live Auction is always the highlight of the evening, with spirited bidding on vacation condos, dinners, collectibles, as well as items like First Row Seating at Graduation, Dinner with the Pastor, and Principal For A Day.
