Our 68th annual Mardi Gras is right around the corner! It will be held January 26-27th. This is a major fundraiser for St. Joseph’s School and Parish. Proceeds from this event help to keep our tuition rates reasonable. Lots of volunteers are needed each year to make this a successful event!
The school families are typically responsible for operating the game booths. Please call Priscilla Keck at 701-770-4356 to volunteer for one of the available shifts. The students are encouraged to help work the booths, but those under 5th grade must be supervised by an adult. Hours worked can be used to fulfill your required service hours.
This year our school families have been asked to donate baskets for the silent auction. The school will be putting together a “Paw Patrol” basket, “Mickey Mouse’s 90th Birthday” basket, “Arts & Crafts” basket, and a “Family Game Night” basket. Please consider donating an item for the basket. A table is set up in the hallway for you to drop off your items. Monetary donations are also welcome and can be given to your child’s teacher or brought to the office.
All St. Joseph’s School families are also encouraged to bring a cake for the Cake Walk, a pie for the Slushburger/Pie Luncheon, and/or baked goods for the Bake Sale. Time spent baking can also be used towards your required service hours. Baked goods should be dropped off by Saturday morning.
Thank you so much for supporting this very important fundraiser. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
