Race for Education Update 5.16.22

Many thanks to all those who have helped make a great start for our 15th Annual Race for Education! Thanks to your generosity we are more than 37% of the way toward our goal of $25,000 to fund new purchases for our school gymnasium and technology program. Congratulations to Lucas Holloway and Alexandra Acierno-Romano for leading the way with the most paid sponsorships so far! 

Just a few reminders: the next early return day is Tuesday, May 24th. Return your sponsorship form with a minimum paid donation of $25 and receive 2 NUT cards!!  Please remember to return sponsorships as soon as possible. If you returned a pledge sheet, please begin to collect payments and send in as well. Remember every little bit helps!  Our goal is to have every student return at least 1 sponsorship!

The first class that has 100% fundraising participation will get to dump buckets of freezing cold ice water over teachers and staff of Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Academy on the race day! Fourth Grade continues to lead the way! We have confirmed Ms. McCann, Mr. Wise, Mr. Duffy, Mrs. Beadle, and Mrs. Hoffman for the faculty. Which teachers should we add next?

We are also looking for volunteers to help organize both the morning of the Race as well as the days before. We are so excited to have the barbecue back and restore the Race to its fully glory! Please contact Mrs. Paula Deist at plovhd@hotmail.com to see how you can help!
