· This Knights of Columbus-sponsored event is a collaboration of efforts, with all profits go directly to St. Joseph School. With last year’s profits (which was around $8,000), Sister was able to purchase new computers (17 desktops 10 laptops) for the Computer Lab. Profits from this year’s tournament will be used to purchase iPads for 1st through 4th grades, a window security film installation (intrusion prevention) for all windows in the school.
· Please come to the next meeting in the pre-K room on Wednesday March 13th. We need volunteers to help in the weeks/months leading up and during the day of the tournament.
·Primarily for prospective Pre-K and Kindergarten families, this delicious event will take place 3-5pm, and will be open to the public. Students and families are encouraged to stay after school to speak with interested families, and of course enjoy the ice cream and games.
