Brainstorming Fundraisers 

Dear St. Bede Parents,
We are brainstorming to find new and exciting ways to bring money into our school and church. We are certain that you and your families have had some great ideas that may have never been discussed with anyone, and would appreciate if you would take a few minutes and send us your ideas.  

What type of events would you like to see at St. Bede? Do you have an event idea that you think would bring new students and families to St. Bede. If so, please let us know.  We are looking for fun, interesting and successful fundraising events to plan. Together we can do great things for St. Bede.

Please write down your ideas and send them either to the school office or the rectory office labeled “School Ideas”.  We hope to have some new events to plan for the coming year.  Thank you in advance for your help and cooperation.
The St. Bede School Administration
