Dear St. Walter Family,

It is very important that we come together again to show Small Schools Matter and that as one family, we are able to do amazing things. We are moving full speed ahead in our fundraising efforts during this month to show the Archdiocese we are capable of raising money and sustaining ourselves. Please know your full participation is very important.

First up, do not cook tomorrow! Instead, plan to attend the Eat Out Night at Buona Beef on 106th & Western. Be sure to bring your flyer so that our school receives the credit for your purchase. FYI…we made $380 at our Eat Out Night last month at McDonald’s. Way to go, Wildcats!

One of our school families has graciously offered to once again host a Popcorn Fundraiser. Forms are coming home in today’s Yellow Folder. Please share the order form with friends and co-workers. What’s Poppin’ will offer a variety of flavors in just right size tubs (32oz). Orders will be delivered a week after they are placed – just in time for Thanksgiving!

Plan to attend the Endowment Dinner Dance on Friday, November 22, at the Double Tree in Alsip. You have already purchased two tickets, now is the time to come out and enjoy…dinner, dancing and a night out without the children! There will be raffle baskets, auction items (including some very special hand-made classroom items) and other ways to help support our school.

We are also planning on hosting a Pancake Breakfast on Sunday, December 8. In order for this to be successful, we need lots of help. Please read the note in today’s Yellow Folder and sign-up to help make the event a success!

Our SWS families are the best…together we are SWSstrong!
