You Did It! We Met Our Goal of $128,000 and Then Some!

As of today we are nearly at $133,000 in magazine sales.

Thanks to all of you, we surpassed our goal. Holy Rosary School gets 51% back, plus 3% to be spent in prizes. That means that over $67,000 goes to the school’s operating budget. Absolutely AMAZING!

We had an outstanding closing assembly last Friday. It was so much fun!

Our top seller was Jacob L. He gets to be principal for a day. Kevin M. and Zach B. were our super second and third places.

Top Selling Classes:

  • 1st - 3rd grade (Bowling and pizza party)
  • 2nd - 1st grade (Ice Cream party)
  • 3rd - 6th grade (Popsicle party)

The top sellers for online sales overall was 1st grade and 8th grade got a special prize for selling lots of magazines on the last week.

That would not have been possible without dedicated parents, teachers and volunteers! Thank you for your continued support!

Quick Fact: Our online sales are increasing every year. This year we had over $94,000 online sales (compared to $40,000 in 2010). Ordering online can be simpler for you & your buyers, better for the environment.

The Family Fun Center trip* is Friday November 7, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. We still have lots of work to do before we go! A preliminary list is being organized.

Permission slips will be going home this week.

Fun Center Coordinator: Marcia Metcalf

[* The Fun Center award is for individual students selling 25 or families selling 40 orders or more.]
