The PTO sponsors several fundraising opportunities for school families and the community throughout the year. Money raised specifically through PTO events fund many items in the PTO budget including field trip subsidies, room parents, graduation, cultural arts, retreats, art supplies, resource center supplies and hospitality to name just a few.
HAWKS DAY / HAWKS 5K and FUN RUN
The Hawks 5K and Fun Run is a fun fitness event in our community, a positive example of the importance of wellness for our students, and a fundraiser to enhance Physical Education and Health & Wellness programs at St. Louis Catholic School. The event takes place in October and is open to the public as well as our church and school communities. The 5K is a USTF certified course.
The Silent Auction is the PTO's biggest fundraiser of the year. You will not want to miss this sell-out event that is typically held in February. Enjoy a fun and exciting evening with the St. Louis Catholic School community and participate in both a silent and live auction.
Spirit Dinners are held every 4-6 weeks at local restaurants on specified dates and timeframes. The restaurant donates a percentage of the sales to the St. Louis PTO. Spirit Dinners are for everyone; not just St. Louis families. Invite your friends and neighbors to come out and support the school!
