9th Annual Benefit Auction
"For it is in giving, that we receive.” Francis of Assisi
Our mission at Sacred Heart Catholic School is to proclaim the Good News of the Gospel and to develop each student spiritually, intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially, so that each is prepared to live and serve in a changing society as a self-respecting and responsible citizen. Since 1882, Sacred Heart Catholic School has been educating children in Rowan and surrounding counties… which means 136 remarkable years of education RIGHT HERE!
Thank you for your support of Sacred Heart! The gift of a great education that is also faith-filled is priceless. At Sacred Heart, it is always our goal to keep education affordable for our families. We are extremely thankful for our volunteers and staff who organize fundraising initiatives for our school so that (1) we can keep our tuition rates affordable, and (2) we can continue to offer exceptional education to our students. We are also extremely thankful for our community businesses, individuals, and families who continue to support our school, our mission, and our financial needs every year.
On Saturday, April 14th, Sacred Heart will host our 9th Annual Benefit Auction Event. We have sprung into spring and will once again feature our favorite 3-leveled silent auction, live auction, dinner, and dancing. This year, we are adding a family fun run to our morning. Proceeds from these events will:
- Provide financial aid. This academic year, we have awarded over $218,000 in financial aid need for approximately 49% of our school families.
- Purchase new Language Arts curriculum for our upper elementary students. Thankfully with your support, we were able to purchase a new math series ($17,000) in 2015 and new social studies curriculum ($8,500) in 2016, and new science curriculum ($11,000) in 2017. Our K-2nd grade elementary students received new Super Kids reading curriculum ($15,500) in 2016-2017.
- Continue to support our energized and integrated STREAM curriculums (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Agriculture/Art and Math) including our Master Gardens.
- Update our technology with new MacBook Laptops for our 3rd-5th grade elementary students by adding 30 MacBook Air laptops. Last year, our proceeds purchased the first year of a three-year Apple Lease for 30 MacBook Air laptops for our middle school students.
We are in GREAT need of event sponsorship support, live and silent auction items, and prayers for this year’s event. The success of this event greatly affects our financial aid support to needy families, our educational curriculums, and our advancement in technology and STREAM programming. Your prayers are also very appreciated! If you are able to help, THANK YOU! We are offering several sponsorship packages to give businesses and individuals optimal exposure among our school families, parish families, and within our Salisbury community. If you would like to donate an item, a themed basket, or perhaps a fabulous vacation to our auction, please let us know.
