Thank you in advance for all of the hard work you are going to do in the upcoming weeks with Catholic Schools Week, Bingo and Hamburger Supper, Open House, and the Draw Down. All of the events of the upcoming weeks are opportunities for us to SHOW this community the value of a St. Elizabeth education, to INVITE others to join our SES family, and to RAISE MONEY for our school.
