Dear St. Walter Family,

One of the many highlights of our school year is the annual Dinner Dance sponsored by Endowment which will take place on Friday, November 9, at 6:30pm at the Double Tree in Alsip. The success of the Dinner Dance is vital to helping our school. Be sure to spread the word about this fun evening filled with good food, dancing, and great basket raffles and auction items. Each school family has already purchased two tickets, but now is the time to coordinate with other school families to put together your table to sit together. You can also purchase additional tickets for family and friends to join us.

This Friday, September 21, Endowment will host Filler Day. We are asking families to help us “fill the baskets” by sending in items that can be used to enhance gift certificates donated by local and national businesses. Please see the flyer in today’s Yellow Folder for further details on items needed. Additionally, students who pay $1 may Dress Down (out of uniform) on Friday, September 21. Money collected will be used towards a special Lottery Raffle Basket.

If you own a business or would like to reach out to your place of work to place an ad in our Dinner Dance Ad Book, please use the form that can be found in this week’s Yellow Folder. The Ad Book is where we are able to raise a great deal of funds while helping businesses gain marketing exposure.

Please be sure to pass along our Grandparents Day flyer coming home today to grandma or grandpa!

Most sincerely,

Mrs. Sharon O’Toole, Principal
