SCHOOL FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES…
Fundraising is a necessary component of a Catholic education, and at Morning Star School there are many ways to get involved and make a difference. Each year our devoted parents, grandparents, supporters and community of friends come together to help us raise needed funds that help us supplement the budget, provide enhancements to classrooms, purchase up-to-date educational tools and continue enrichment programs. These contributions are immeasurable in how they support the mission of our school and are a worthy model of stewardship for us all. Listed below are many ways you can help us raise money.
Our 10th Annual “Shoot For The Stars” Golf Tournament will be held on November 13th, 2017 at the beautiful and challenging San Jose Country Club.
