The 2019 auction is fast approaching!
This year’s theme is a Night for Heroes!
Ways to get involved are numerous! Selling (and buying) raffle tickets, engaging in conversations with local businesses about donating silent or live auction items, and volunteering at the event are just a few. You can also attend the auction and encourage your family, friends, and colleagues to attend, too!
One way that every class gets involved is through Class Projects. Read more here (PDF). Parent Reps in each grade rally their classes to develop, implement, and deliver project ideas.
This year Holy Redeemer will feature class projects in the live auction. There are several reasons for this, but the most compelling was how awesome last year’s projects were!
We want to see them get more visibility, and we know they have higher value than they receive being in the silent. If your class has a project this year, we hope you will rise to the challenge and take advantage of the opportunity to create something great with your class. Consider making something that anyone might want in their home and not something that only speaks to parents within your class.
The school will reimburse up to $75 in supplies towards the class projects. If this year your class is assigned a basket, it’s your year to take a break in creating something spectacular for the Live auction. That said, we thank you for crafting an attractive themed basket to feature in our silent auction! We know that sometimes compiling a basket from class donations is just as much work as creating a project, so we appreciate your efforts very much.
Another new element to this year’s event is that our paddle raise will be in support of the emergency and safety needs. We need to be HeRoes for our kids and make sure our school is a safe place for them to learn and grow. Therefore, our event theme is A Night for Heroes and we will be taking an elegant approach to a superhero theme. 🙂 If you were hoping to make a project/basket that jives with our theme, now you know!

The first of three Lenten Fish Fry evenings is Friday, March 9th from 5:30-7:30 pm in the cafeteria!
We are more in need of volunteers tomorrow night than for the next three Fridays. If you can volunteer, please contact Dana Wazny.
The Fish Fry will also take place Friday, March 16th, and Friday, March 23rd! The events are Parent Club-organized fundraisers for the school.
We eat fish on Fridays because during Lent, most people over age 14 are prohibited from eating meat. Note that for the past few years, we’ve offered vegetarian entrées as part of the Fish Fry for the veg(atari)ans among us who always abstain from meat.

To encourage reading and help our school library grow, Holy Redeemer is hosting a Scholastic Book Fair during Catholic Schools Week!
