Sunday’s walkathon was a huge success in every sense of the word. We had a great turnout, awesome weather and from a fundraising perspective we did extremely well. The final numbers are still being worked out; we will let you know totals as soon as they are available. I thank the students and their family members for working hard to collect pledges. The number of volunteers it takes to put on such an event is astounding. Thanks to all of you for the generous giving of your time to make this event a memorable one. Thank you for your support of our school and of Catholic education.
