Brown Bear Car Wash Tickets
Sales for the month of November showed much improvement! Thank you for your efforts! 94 Tickets were sold which is a $517 profit for us! Please keep up the good work. These make great stocking stuffers for drivers! If you are struggling selling the tickets, perhaps some parents can coordinate to set up a table after Masses to sell them. All remaining unsold tickets will be collected at the end of January. At that time, a determination will be made regarding the Warm Beach retreat in late May.
!!NEW!! Advertisement for Brown Bear Carwash tickets will be in the parish Sunday bulletin this weekend, 12/17/17! Take advantage of this and organize a table after Mass! St. Pius X should have the cleanest cars in the NW!!! Sell! Sell! Sell! :)
Private High School Applications
Now is the time to complete the financial aid applications for high school. If the school uses FACTS for their applications, the Fulcrum Foundation application is already embedded into their application. One stop shopping! Note the documents that need to be scanned and uploaded for the financial aid application. Let me know if you have any questions. Financial Aid applications are due 12/31/17. Financial aid information will be found on the high school's website under "Admissions", and/or "Tuition/Financial Aid".
Applications for private high school are due 1/8/17. Your child will need to complete the online, or paper application and submit the application fee. Mrs. Poteet has been offering help on the essays. Please encourage your child to get these done as soon as possible and not to wait until the last minute!
Once the application is submitted, we await the award letters from the high schools that arrives mid-February. Students and families need to make their decision by the enrollment deadline of March 1st.
If you would like to get some volunteer hours and would like to help get the graduation gowns ready for graduation, please let me know! They need to be washed, dried and ironed. They are located in the school office. We will be taking our group graduation picture in early February, so they will need to be ready by then, Thank you!
