Supporting youth and education is something to be really proud of ... and with that in mind, our annual Saint Sponsorship program is officially open for 2022-2023!  The program has been expanded to include more unique levels, which are detailed below. You will find several great benefits that apply to any level you choose.
To learn more about becoming a Saint Sponsor and/or enroll in the program, you may visit https://SAINTSPONSOR.givesmart.com or Text SAINTSPONSOR to 76278 for a link to your phone.  The deadline to sign up to be a 2022-2023 Saint Sponsor is August 25th.
Each year, monetary gifts from our M.A.G.I.C. Match sponsors help to fund EXTRA learning and enrichment materials for our classrooms and learning areas, as well as special projects or field trips that may not be possible without your M.A.G.I.C. commitment. We are once again excited to partner with families and businesses to support our school and our dedicated teachers.
Would you be able to "adopt" a class? Your name or business will be framed and displayed outside and inside your "adopted" classroom, added to the "Giving Tree" display located at the entrance to the School, and you will be recognized at special events during the school year.  Please make sure to indicate how you would like your name(s) to read when recognized or if you'd like to remain anonymous.
Make your tax-deductible M.A.G.I.C. donation of $500.00 (paid once or monthly throughout the school year) online at https://SAMAGIC.givesmart.com or send a check to the Parish Office with "MAGIC Match" marked in the memo.
FOOTBALL RAFFLE ~ Event Chairs, Matt & Melany Bechtold
Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased online at https://SAFootball.givesmart.com or in the Parish Office Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. - Noon. 

How to Play
1. Each ticket can win prizes in all 18 weeks (Thursday - Monday) of the regular football season. The first game is Thursday, September 8, 2022.

2. Each ticket has a unique CODE (randomly generated) that represents five different teams (randomly assigned) each week. Ticket holders can not choose their teams. No two tickets have the same CODE. All 18 weeks of code/team combinations are assigned and available for viewing now.

3. Each week, the points scored by the 5 teams represented by your unique CODE will be added up. The 5 highest scoring tickets and the lowest scoring ticket all win prizes. In case of ties, prizes will be combined and split between the winners. 

The amount of total prize money to be won will be announced on September 8, 2022.  Prize money will be 60% of the total ticket sales by noon on September 8, 2022, up to $8500.

4. Teams not playing in any given week ('Bye Week' or any other reason a team does not play) will be assigned the score for that team from the game they last played.  

5. Winners will be automatically notified by email and checks to the winners will be mailed each week.
