The annual Resurrection Walk-a-thon is less than nine days away!  Walk-a-thon 2014 will be held on Tuesday, September 30 and students will be walking to and from the Pickwick Theatre in Park Ridge.  Students who bring in $50 or more in pledges will stay to watch the movie,  The Maze Runner


If we meet the monetary goal of $29,500 and the goal of 95% participation in the Walk-a-thon, then students will earn the day off on Friday, October 10, 2014!   All money that is raised by the Walk-a-thon is used to enhance student programs. Click here for a copy of the Walk-a-thon participation form

Students who turn in their pledge forms and sponsorship money by Tuesday, September 23 will be entered into a special raffle to win $50 in Bandit Bucks to be redeemed in the Bandit Boutique.  All pledge forms, sponsorship money and permission forms are due this Friday, September 26.  We are looking forward to a successful Walk-a-thon!

Market Day:

Thank you to everyone who participated in our first Market Day order.  We had 23 customers last week and the Resurrection Parents Club raised $155.56 which will be used towards the purchase of our new Resurrection photo backdrop. Thank you to the following students who helped with Market Day, including:  Julia Bogusz, Sam McDermott, Erika Balce, Emily Sclafani and Kasia Balek.  Any student who is interested in volunteering for Market Day should see Mrs. Martorano.

The October order form will be coming home next week and is also available here. Orders must be placed by Monday, October 13 and orders will be delivered to Res on Thursday, October 16.

WHY all this fundraising?


Tuition only covers 80% of the cost to educate a Resurrection student.  The balance comes from donors, alumnae, school families and our fundraising efforts!  Take a look at the Parent Survival Guide to Fundraising for 2014-15 and all of the materials that were sent home in your Fundraising Packet

Thank you for ALL you do to keep our school strong!
