Color Walk- SJA Campus, Friday, September 29th (completed)

This will be the third year for the SJA Color Walk, a student driven fundraiser.
This is a very fun, colorful walk with lots of good vibes, and we have lots of fun not running!

It takes place around the perimeter of the church and school and is hosted by numerous parent volunteers.
The students aren’t timed, so there is no pressure to hurry and get done. A definite student favorite!

Shop with Scrip – ongoing
The SCRIP program is an ongoing fundraiser for the school. Home & School purchases gift certificates and/or plastic gift cards from national and local businesses at a discount. Discounts range from 1.5% to 50%. Home & School then resells the certificates at face value to participants. The difference between the discounted purchase price and resell value is our profit. In turn, Home & School shares that profit with participating families.
