Just a reminder: The Knights of Columbus are sponsoring their annual Spelling Bee next week, Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. in the Queen of the Miraculous Medal School Gym. There will be two divisions: Division 1 for 4th, 5th, & 6th graders and Division 2 for 7th, 8th, and 9th graders. Practice lists can be obtained from your child's teacher. Good Luck!
This year we have decided to partner with a truly hassle-free fundraiser called Shoparoo. Nationwide, over 10,000 schools are already earning hundreds and even thousands of dollars through Shoparoo.
Shoparoo is fundraising made easy: turn pictures of your everyday shopping receipts into cash donations and sweepstakes entries for our school with this free app. It’s that simple, just shop, snap, earn.
And you'll be happy to know that all data provided to brands is aggregated - no personal or contact information will be shared. In fact, Shoparoo participants can choose to remain completely anonymous without even providing their name. In addition, users can always cross out any items or information on receipts such as credit card information, or simply choose to not submit a particular receipt.
Get started today:
1. Download the free Shoparoo app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Our school code is grin3353.
(Here is a link that will automatically take you to the sign-up page for Queen's School.)
2. Select our school from the list and start taking pictures of your receipts - shop anywhere, buy anything!
3. Earn even more points by spreading the word and inviting others to join.
There’s no limit to how much money we can raise with Shoparoo - the more supporters, the more we will raise for our school. Also, each of our first 20 participants will earn a guaranteed $1 donation from Shoparoo for their first receipt! Check out shoparoo.com to learn more about this awesome hassle-free program.
Thank you for your support!
The students from Lumen Christi's Traveling Science Club visited our second graders today with some hands-on science projects. Everyone, big and small, had a wonderful time.
Our first grade has been busy learning about St. Francis of Assisi and how they can be of service to others. They have spent the past two weeks performing extra service at home to earn donations for two worthy causes. The first is the Jackson Police Department's stuffed animals for children involved in violent crimes or crisis. Officers carry stuffed animals in their squad cars to give to kids who are involved in fires, car accidents or violent crimes. The other donations collected were supplies for the Jackson County Animal Shelter. We are making our study of the Justice Virtue come to life!
Mr. Chris Smith, Principal of Jackson Catholic Middle School and Lumen Christi High School, brought Darth Raider and the Titan mascot to Queen's this morning. He told us about Homecoming Week and gave us each a Lumen Christi folder and pencil. He also asked us to pray for all the JCMS and LCHS students. We are invited us to help broadcast our enthusiasm for Catholic education by joining them for "Schools Rule" tomorrow morning at 5:45 a.m. at Lumen Christi. People attending the Schools Rule assembly will be treated to a free breakfast. Don't forget to wear your favorite JCMS or LCHS spirit wear!
