While counting with our kindergarteners, we are find we have been in school twenty-five days and we have already learned a lot! Saint Isabella is a wonderful school and offers so much to all of our students, supporting them when they begin their elementary education and then when they are fully ready for high school. Elementary education is the foundation for all later learning. I appreciate and admire the sacrifices you make to ensure this opportunity for your children and the future of the school.
Every year, donations from parents and friends of Saint Isabella School help students take advantage of all that Saint Isabella has to offer. The Annual Fund is our annual appeal for contributions from alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, parents, faculty and staff, and friends of Saint Isabella Catholic School to help defray the costs of a Catholic education that tuition revenue alone does not cover. These funds will support all areas our school, including religious activities, curricular enhancements, technology upgrades, campus improvements, and tuition assistance. We’re only 4 weeks into our 8-week Annual Fund Campaign and we’ve already raised $24,350, representing participation from 33% of our school families, which includes 100% of School Advisory Board (SAB) members. Thank you to those who have contributed over the last four weeks – Barreneche, Bixby, Bradley, Brown, Bruns, Bryan, Buckle, Burns, Canedo, Capurro, Cassidy, Chang, Dailey, Ferguson, Galetti, George, Goldman, Grisanti, Guria, Hackert, Hadd, Hall, Handley, Hayre, Hellmold, Hishmeh, Hodges, Hunter T&C, Hunter K&S, Hurley E, Kay, Knutson (Ebersole), Korich, Kuhr, LaKose, Lauster, Lazzarini, Lorenzen, Marley, Martin-Toups, McMorris, Naretto, Nienaber, Ochoa, Pass, Perazzo, Pheatt, Rendic, Riella, Russell, Sanders, Sanford, Santi, Schiff, Silva, Smith, Stoddard, Strange, Terauchi, Thomas, Widergren, Woo, Zidek, an anonymous donor and two non-school families, Donovan and Villalobos.
