Fundraising and parent involvement is a huge part of the SMOS experience.
Because tuition pays for only a percentage of the actual cost to educate a student, successful fundraising is very important at St. Margaret of Scotland School. Mandatory major fundraising activities, such as selling Lottery Calendars and purchasing Gift Cards supply essential income to the general operating budget. In addition, the PTG conducts yearly fundraisers to provide special income for student programs, but these fundraisers are not mandatory.
There are several options available to fulfill fundraising obligations. Some of these include:
- Purchase or sell Lottery Calendars
- Participate in Gift Card Sales/Reconciling during weekend Masses or on Wednesday mornings during the school year
- Volunteer to help with the December Craft Show, Lenten Fish Fry, or Annual Parish Festival
A family may combine work and/or monetary donations, as long as the value totals the minimum fundraising dollar amount specified for the school year.
