A BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE

Race for Education

With spring just around the corner, we are rapidly approaching “Race” season at All Saints!  Nine years ago All Saints Catholic School launched a tremendously successful fundraiser program, the Race for Education. Through the years, the funds donated to our school by family and friends from around the country have enabled us to purchase an ACTIV Board system for every homeroom, Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade. The funds have also supported a variety of other initiatives, including special recognitions for the faculty, additional funding for the fine arts program, and contributions to the general operating fund.

Preparations are now underway for the 9th Annual Race for Education which will be held on Thursday, May 8. The multi-colored packet distributed to students last Friday provides an overview of the key information related to the event. Please mark your calendars to come and cheer on our students.
