Dear St. Walter Family,
I have wonderful news to share with you. Through the hard work of our school families and the overwhelming generosity of our alumni donors and Big Shoulders, we are just about there with the required funds needed. We are in conversation with the Archdiocese, as some of the money is in the form of pledges and not yet in the bank. Once we receive the official determination from the Archdiocese, I will be in further communication with you. I appreciate all of your supportive words, prayers and generous contributions.
We now begin the next phase which is increasing our enrollment. Please assist us in spreading the word about SWS and encourage families to attend our Open House on Sunday, January 27, to see for themselves everything we have to offer. In the coming weeks, you will be receiving items to distribute about our Open House to neighbors and friends. Please remember YOU are our BEST form of advertising. Parents sharing their testimonials and reasons why they have chosen SWS sell our school better than any advertisement we put together. Remember, for each new family you refer to us and that enrolls in SWS for the 2019-2020 school year, YOU will receive a $300 tuition referral credit.
It is also important to continue to support our upcoming fundraisers. I am sure you would agree with me that we need to continue to add money to our savings account so that SWS will not find itself in this type of situation in the future.
Coming together, as one family, our prayers, donations and fundraising efforts have given us new hope for the future and our children’s future. Now, let’s keep working together and keep that Mountain Moving!
Welcome to the New Year!
Mrs. Sharon O’Toole, Principal
