Dear NDBG Parents and Guardians:
Greetings from the Development Desk!
So hard to believe the first quarter of the school year is already behind us. The hurried pace of back to school is in the rear view mirror and Christmas and New Years are approaching so quickly.
Since September we’ve watched our sixth graders make a smooth transition to our hallways, while our seniors are putting on the final touches to their college applications. Cross Country, Girls Volleyball, and Soccer and, of course, our Holy Trinity Pride all competed in sectional play this fall.
In addition, the fall production of Beauty and the Beast was a smash! Our students are succeeding in the classroom and beyond.
I wanted to make sure that you know that our Golden Gallop raised $21,900. We exceeded our goal by almost $2,000. This is because of you, and your student’s, generosity and tenacity in getting donations. The fundraising goal for the school for the year is $150,000. That sounds big, and it is, but by working together and breaking up that amount we can achieve this goal.
As you know, each family has a fundraising goal of at least $300. By offering various fundraising options my goal is to help each family meet their obligation. I am always open to new ideas. Several of you have checked in to offer ideas and support. Thanks so much. If we haven’t spoken, please feel free to send me an email or give me a call.
The next fundraiser on the horizon is our mid-year tuition raffle. This is an opportunity to sell tickets to win free tuition from February until June 2020.
PLUS -- each ticket sold goes to reduce your fundraising obligation. The drawing will be held on Friday, January 31, 2020. The tickets are attached to this letter. I can’t wait to see all the names in the spinning drum and see who will win!
As I’ve said before, I know the choice you make to send your student to NDBG. As an alum, I know the lessons I learned here opened doors for me throughout my life. As the mother of three alumi, I can see how the education they received here has impacted them in college and beyond.
Fundraising IS a challenge, but I know that working together we can meet our goals this year.
I hope to hear from you. Thanks so much for your continued support.
