St. Jude Walk and Wellness Fair
The St. Jude Walk and Wellness Fair is the primary fundraising event for the PTO. Each year the planning committee reaches out to our business community to support our school and the response has been amazing. The day is a great blend of activities, raffles, learning stations and a delicious lunch. Families are asked to sell raffle tickets, sign sponsors and/or volunteer their time and talent to make this day a success for our school and our students. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also write a check to St. Jude PTO for the amount that your family raised or you can go to goo.gl/9bXL6p (or text stjude to 555888) and post your amount by check or credit card.
The Box Tops fundraiser consists of clipping the Box Tops from hundreds of General Mills products. There are boxes located at the entrances of Church, at school, and in each homeroom for you to drop off labels. They can also be turned in through the school’s Wednesday envelope. For each Box Top turned in, the PTO receives 10. There also is a monthly Box Tops and Tyson contest between homerooms. Each month the winning homeroom receives a reward, with an overall winner at the end of the school year.
This is a year-round fundraiser.

This fundraiser was started to raise money to help offset the rise in tuition costs. 365 raffle cards are sold in November and December for the following calendar year. Every Sunday a winner is drawn with cash prizes of between $40 and $500. Winner’s names are re-entered in the drawing each week. Drawings for the entire month take place after 11:00 a.m. mass on the first Sunday of the month.
