Just a few reminders:

  • Trash bag pick up is only on Friday.  Please stop by the church parking lot when you pick up your children after school, if possible.  Volunteers will be available to get you your order 3:00 – 6:30 p.m. Details in a previous blog post – click here.
  • Box Tops, Labels for Education and Best Choice UPCs will be picked up on Monday. Please send your clippings in to your child’s classroom. Let’s see which class will be the first to win the Box Tops Traveling Trophy!
  • Tuesday is the deadline to register for the junior high trip to Washington, D.C. Contact Mr. Wagner or visit his website (click here) if you have any questions.

Let’s Talk Trash (bags)

September 24, 2013

Trash bagsPlease plan on picking up your trash bag order on Friday afternoon at the church, please! 

(Long story short, our order wasn’t big enough to warrant a semi-truck delivery, so they’ll drop off our order on shrink-wrapped pallets on Friday morning. We’ll have them all ready for pick-up on Friday from 3 to 6:30 p.m., but  we have nowhere to store them overnight, so there will be no Saturday pick-up time and we’re hoping all will be finished on Friday.)

There is a lot involved in sorting, hauling, setting up and fulfilling orders, so if you have some time to help out on Friday afternoon, please contact Laura Haeusser and she’ll put you to work. It should actually be a fun time and a good workout, so come help! Call Laura now.

So, again:
Trash bag order pick-up will take place in the Holy Cross Church parking lot this Friday, Sept. 27 from 3 – 6:30 p.m.

If you know you can’t make it during that time and can’t find a friend who will get the order for you, please contact Laura Haeusser to make arrangements.


Winners Revealed At PTO Potluck

September 24, 2013

Info from Beverley Herrick & Laura Haeusser –

Thursday night’s PTO potluck dinner was a great gathering of families for food, fun and announcements.

Several children and adults won door prizes. And there was a short visit from the new Pope! Okay, it was a cardboard cutout, but Mrs. Carney couldn’t just leave him hanging out in the hallway all by himself with all that good food to be had.

Winners in the trash bag sales contests were also announced.
(totals include both rolls sold and donations collected)

Top-selling families:

  1. Lauterwasser 108 rolls – winner of the Fireman’s Party!
  2. Bailey 73 – winner of the Backyard Barbeque Party!
  3. Cordova 54
  4. Watson 48
  5. Vasconcelos 47
  6. Haeusser 40
  7. Doyle 39
  8. Gonzalez 37
  9. Arensbuerg 36
  10. Metzger 34

And, remember, those students who earned the out-of-uniform passes for our first and second week contests by selling at least 2 rolls of bags those first weeks will be able to use their pass(es) on Wednesday and Thursday THIS WEEK!  Sept 25 – 26.  Our third week contest, ice cream recess, was already celebrated last week.  Yum! Yum!

Thanks to the 132 Holy Cross families who helped the school by participating in our Trash Bag Sale! 48 families met their goal of 25 rolls of trash bags sold (or $75 in donations collected).  Another 84 families sold some trash bags or turned in a smaller donation.  We sold a total of 1,950 rolls or bundles of trash bags and collected $1,563 in donations for a net profit of $7,338 for our testing and textbooks. If you didn’t have the opportunity to participate in the sale or donate to the fundraiser, you can still send a donation check to the school office.  Make the check out to Holy Cross Catholic School and indicate “trash bag sale” in the memo.

Since our goal for this fundraiser was $15,000, we fell short by a bit.  Our other fundraiser for the year will be a garage sale in the spring.  Our goal for both fundraisers combined is $30,000, so here’s hoping we have a lot of good treasures to sell!  Keep up the good work, Holy Cross!

Please pick up your trash bags this Friday afternoon!  Details to follow…


Trash Bag Orders Due Monday

September 16, 2013

trashbags-prizesOrders and money for the trash bag fundraiser are due today at Holy Cross!

Students from the winning families in the first two contests for the fundraiser have enjoyed lunch and cookies with Father Mike and Principal Carney. But there still are chances to win:

  • The top-selling family wins a FIREHOUSE PARTY. Captain Bill Schneider will host a station tour, dinner at the station, and a ride in the fire truck (sirens included!) for the entire winning family.  We’ll have lots of food and fun with the firefighters at Station #51, so bring your cameras.  This is going to be a blast!!
  • The second-place family earns a “Trash Part,” at Laura Haeusser’s home.  Nothing but the second best for you!  There will be dinner and trashy games (trash bag piñata, trash bag slip & slide, lawn bag sack race!)  We’ll cheer the kids on with trash bag pompoms, and of course, there’ll be plenty of trash bags to pick up the mess!

Thanks to all for their participation in our fundraiser. The goal is for every school family to sell at least 25 orders of trash bags. We look forward to raising $30,000 with the two PTO fundraisers this year at Holy Cross, with the money earmarked for 7th & 8th grade math textbooks, 5th & 6th grade history textbooks and MAPS testing for the entire school.
