Dear St. Paul Community,
St. Paul Catholic School began in 1925 as a two-room schoolhouse run by Benedictine sisters. It was born out of a need for strong faith-based education. St. Paul parishioners saw the need to provide families with this faith-based education in order to prepare children for the future. They wanted to provide children not only with excellent skills to read, write and compute, but also with a strong belief in something greater than themselves.
Ninety-six years later, St. Paul Catholic School is still providing a strong faith-based education. Our enrollment numbers have fluctuated with changing populations throughout the years, and our academics have evolved. But, we have never wavered from our faith or the excellent education we provide. We work hard every day to prepare our children with the skills and attributes that will help them be successful in the future, academically, personally and spiritually.
Throughout the years, we, like all other faith-based schools, have struggled to balance our budgets. Maintaining a tuition that can pay for all of our costs as well as be affordable for our families has been quite a challenge. We’ve tried various fundraisers. We’ve enlisted volunteers and sold products. We’ve held fish frys and walk-a-thons. We’ve even auctioned off principal’s antics and priest’s participation in events. While these things have been fun, we’ve come to a point where we need to do more.
We are now simply asking you to support our school. No gimmicks. No products. No auctions. We are asking our families, past and present, to support us with a monetary donation. Any donation would be appreciated. No gift is too small, and certainly no gift is too big. There are a lot of things we’d like to do. But, we can’t do these things without funding. The parish has supported us for a very long time and we are very grateful for that. But, now has come the time that we need to reach out beyond the parish accounts for support. We need to ask for all those that ever attended St. Paul, sent children through St. Paul, or know someone at St. Paul now for help.
Our school is excellent, not because we have a blue ribbon or because we’re ninety-six years old. Our school is excellent because of the people that built the school, supported the school, have gone through the school, and call the school home now. Our current students and staff want to carry on the same tradition of excellence and faith that have become our history and continue to offer this for generations to come. We need your help to do so though. Please donate and encourage others to donate as well. We truly appreciate all the effort and support. Anything you donate to us is tax deductible and can be donated through WESHARE on the parish website by using the link https://saintpaulflorence.weshareonline.org/ws/opportunities/SecureOurFuture.
May God bless you for your kindness and support.
