Our school Jog-a-thon is a fundraiser that is held at the end of September each year. It is the only fundraiser that directly involves each student's active participation. Each student is asked to obtain pledges, in the form of flat donations, for walking or jogging on this day. The walking time generally does not exceed thirty minutes per student. Our goal each year is 100% student participation! The faculty and parent volunteers set up teams, activities, a DJ, prizes, and a special lunch to make this day fun and memorable for the entire St. Patrick School family. Clcik here to see photos from Jog-a-Thon.

Scrip Information Letter
What is Scrip? It's a way to raise money for St. Patrick School and earn a tuition rebate for your family at no cost to you! St. Patrick School buys gift certificates at a discount, and then sells them at face value, making a profit on each sale. Just make your normal household purchases at the stores you shop. Current Scrip Form
Where can I use Scrip? Purchase the gift certificates for the stores you shop usually, and spend them like cash! There are many retail stores, grocery stores, gas stations and restaurants that participate.
Can I use Scrip to pay my store charge card? Kohl’s and JC Penney accept Scrip as payment on your account. When your bill arrives, just order Scrip, go to the store in person, and apply the Scrip to your account.
Who benefits from Scrip? You and St. Pat’s benefit! Our school receives one to ten percent of each Scrip you purchase and you receive one to ten percent, in the form of a tuition credit, for St. Patrick School. Anyone (grandparents, friends, neighbors, etc.) can buy Scrip and designate it for your family. You can help St. Patrick School while making your normal purchases.
How do I get Scrip? Scrip will be sold in the narthex after weekend masses and on school days with a Scrip envelope through your child’s Home Folder.
Market Day is a fund raiser offered by St. Patrick School that runs all year long. It takes place once a month, usually on the third Saturday of the month. It gives people the opportunity buy quality food items while benefiting the school. Order forms are sent out a few weeks before and you come to the school to pick up your order on that Saturday. The school receives 10% of the price of all items purchased. Approximately three times a year special sale items allow the school to gain even more profits. If you wish to receive more information about our Market Day program, please feel free to contact Deanna Curley @ 847-731-0241 or e-mail at DDDCJR@aol.com or contact Market Day at www.marketday.com

During the school year we have two pancake breakfasts and two pasta dinners scheduled. This is a fundraiser for the school but more importantly it is a time for people to gather together and visit. Please check our school calendar for the dates and times.
Every month during the school year we have a pizza day. The order forms are posted on the website and each student is able to order a pizza (personal pan pizza from Domino’s Pizza), soda, and a cookie or cupcake. The students enjoy this alternative to the hot lunch program.
