Scrip is a program through which you can order gift cards from hundreds of stores and restaurants. Cards are purchased for their face value, but the school receives a donation from the business for each card. That means the cards cost the purchaser nothing extra, but the school makes money. To print an order form and to see a list of some stores and restaurants in the program, click on the Scrip Order Form link at the top of this page. For the entire list, click on the GLScrip.com link or go online to www.glscrip.com. We have a number of cards available for purchase at all times in the school office. Cards are also available at Masses, ballgames, and bingo.
Orders must be turned in by 2:00 Monday afternoon or placed on-line by 6:00 Monday evening. Cards are available for pickup on Friday afternoon.
St. Thomas School conducts a variety of fundraisers to help with the expense of operating a school. Our goal is to keep the cost of tuition as low as possible. These fundraisers are vital for that reason.
Bingo is held at 7:00 p.m. on the 1st and 3rd Friday of the month in the Parish Center. Refreshments are available.
We collect the following items: Box Tops for Education, Campbell's Soup labels, and aluminum cans. Paper drives are held throughout the year.
The biggest fundraiser is the Soup Supper for the Booster Club organization. The Soup Supper is held the Sunday prior to Ash Wednesday. It's next scheduled for February 10, 2013. This event is a huge carnival and soup meal.
The Gigantic Garage Sale is held twice a year (fall and spring). The dates this year are September 13-15 and March 7-9. The money made from the garage sale is used for technology. We also have Longaberger Basket Bingo Night two times during the school year.
We hold a breakfast annually in November. This year it will be held on November 11th.
The 7th and 8th graders sell fruit each year in November. The profit made from this goes toward their class trip to Space Camp. The 7th and 8th graders also hold fish fries throughout the fall and winter to help fund their trip.
