St. Mary Catholic School
Catholic Schools Week “Stewardship Tuesday”
Wrap St. Mary Catholic School in Paper for Pay-It-Forward House
Beginning Tuesday, January 22, 2019, Kindergarten through 4th-grade students are collecting rolls of toilet paper and roles of paper towels to benefit
the Pay-It-Forward House. Our school goal is to collect 20,311 feet, enough to wrap the school in toilet paper and paper towel from ground level to the roof. As calculated by our advanced 7th-grade math students, we need to collect a combination of 549 rolls of paper towel and 820 rolls of toilet paper to reach our goal.
On Tuesday, January 29, 2019 kindergarten through 4th-grade students will walk donated paper products to the Pay-It-Forward-House and help to stock the shelves.
The collection of paper goods will continue through Friday, February 12, 2019. All donations may be dropped off at the school office or sent in with your child.
