Notre Dame Regional High School’s annual activity week raises nearly $250K
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KBSI) – Notre Dame Regional High School raised nearly quarter of a million dollars during the school’s Annual Activity Week.
The high school held Activity Week from Friday, September 24 through Saturday, October 2 to involved students, staff, parents and the community in raising funds to reduce the operating budget of the school. The school raised $239,216.15.
The school held raffles and auctions. Notre Dame also sold magazine subscriptions, candy, pizza, trash bags, and fruit. Each class hosted a public dinner serving an average of 1,390 people each night. In addition to the all-school items and public dinners, classes sold a variety of class-specific items.
“What a community we live in,” said Principal Tim Garner in a statement posted on the school’s website. “Without the tremendous support of the community, our Activity Week could not have been as successful. They showed up each night for dinners and have supported our students the entire week. Our parents are fantastic and have put in so much additional time this week volunteering in so many different ways. The students and faculty have brought energy and excitement all week long and have supported one another to make this another memorable year. They have worked tirelessly all week long and have shown their pride in being an ND Bulldog in the daily assemblies, the dinners, the work projects. I am so proud to be a part of this Notre Dame Family and I’m so proud of our students for their energy and effort.”
The Senior Class provided the largest profit per capita raising a total of $83,163.56 bringing in $729.51 per student. As the winners, Senior Class candidates Will Richards and Carolyne Cork were crowned King and Queen at the Activity Week Dance on Saturday night.
