We have raised $38,608.27 as of October 17, 2018!
It’s an exciting time of year! St. Mary’s Marathon fundraiser is underway and we have fun new changes and challenges to raise money for our wonderful school. This year for St. Mary’s School Marathon we are trying a few new things. First off, instead of just walking, we will be providing service to Bird Island residents that ask for help with a project, such as raking leaves, picking up sticks, cleaning windows. An ad will be posted in the bulletin looking for projects our school can do to serve our community! Bird Island residents looking for some help around their yards on Wednesday, October 17th can contact the school office to sign up for a time slot! Contact Karen at the school office at 320-365-3693!
