Annual Ticket Draw:
Once again this year we are sponsoring a Christmas
Ticket Draw. This event is one of the major yearly
fundraisers for our school. Money raised helps support
extra programming and curriculum resources for students.
We are sending home three books per family. Tickets cost
$1.00 each or a book of 6 for $5.00.
While student participation in any fundraising event at
St. Augustine’s school is voluntary, we do appreciate
any help you can provide by way of the sale or purchase
of these tickets.
We ask that all ticket stubs, money and any unsold
tickets be returned to your child’s teacher no later
than Friday, December 18th. If you sell these and would
like more please return your initial three books of
stubs and money prior to getting your extra tickets. If
you have any questions please call the school. Once
again, thank you for your continued support for the
students of St. Augustine’s Elementary.
Scholastic Book Fair:
Our annual Scholastic Book Fair is currently ongoing .
As usual, our family day will be held during
parent-teacher interviews. Please allow some extra time
to drop in and have a look. Don't forget to enter your
name in the prize draw for your chance to win books for
your child and his / her classroom library. Teachers
will also have their “Wish List” posted on the Library
Door. These are books that teachers would like to add to
their classroom libraries for students to read. If you
can, we encourage you to purchase one of these books
that will be placed in your child’s classroom.
