It was another great Lion’s Leap day – the sun was shining and many parents came to cheer kids on! There were 209 kids who beat the number of laps they ran last year. 1st – 6th graders combined ran 2,622 laps around St. Giles – amazing!
We had the awards ceremony on October 30th where 86 kids earned a Lion’s Leap t-shirt by bringing in 5 or more donations greater than $10, over their minimum required donation – awesome!! These kids will be able to wear their t-shirts on their special out-of-uniform day November 12th. Our principal for 1/2 day winners were 3rd grader Dominic Fosco and 6th grader Fergus O’Reilly – congrats!
Our top earning homerooms, bringing in the most money this year were: 3rd place – Ms. Albregts 103, 2nd place – Ms. Coronia 104, and 1st place – Mrs. Kufta 110. Mrs. Mikulecky’s 6th graders brought in the most jars full of coins in the school – 11 jars! They have all earned a special treat in their classroom – great job working together!
Did We Make Our Goal?
We are so close to our $90,000 goal with $84,000 brought in as of November 4th. Please continue to bring in your donation envelopes! On December 18th, any required donations not received will be added to the student’s tuition. We are working toward earning a game assembly for all students during Catholic Schools Week, February 2016. Please help us meet our goal!
IT’S NOT TOO LATE!! You can still donate on-line to sponsor a student or a classroom
You can make an on-line donation to sponsor one of our 480 students or any of our classrooms in the Lion’s Leap Fun Run. Thank you for your support, helping us raise $90,000.
