Ariella's Toy Giving Extravaganza
Along with their schoolmate, Ariella, St. Elizabeth students are gathering unwrapped/packaged toys for distribution to children who are spending the holidays at CHOP. Ariella, herself, was overwhelmed by the generosity of family and friends who sent her gifts to entertain her during her hospital stays. She wants to spread joy to other kids who can not be home due to serious health problems. Gifts can be delivered to the school or mailed directly to Ariella's home by December 13th. The gifts will be delivered to the patients at CHOP on December 14, 2018.

Our Outreach Project this year is to assemble ten Thanksgiving Baskets for needy families in our area.
Each grade has been asked to bring in various food items to fill the Baskets for a traditional Thanksgiving Day meal. Parish fund raising will complete the basket with the turkey!
As we continue to enjoy the current fall and Halloween season, we are aware of the needs of other students in the area. The St. Elizabeth student council will be selling chocolate covered pretzel rods on Wednesday, October 31st. Profits from this sale will be given to the Snack Pack Pals Program.
St. Elizabeth Regional School will host a Veterans Day Prayer Service on Friday, November 9, 2018 at 9:00 am in the Parish Hall. Grade 8 is asking for the names of service men and women, past and present, from families so we can pray for them during the prayer service.
All Parents, veterans and their families are welcome to join us on Friday, November 9th, so that we might thank our veterans for their service.
Dress Down Days
The Saint Elizabeth Student Council sponsors several voluntary dress down days throughout the school year to raise money for different programs in the community and beyond. Because many students will be out of uniform on these days, each student becomes more aware of these various needs, whether or not they choose to participate. Students typically donate $1.00 for the chance to be out of uniform.
Twin Day - Dress alike with a friend or "twin" with your teacher to raise funds for those affected by Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Michael in early November.
Black and Orange Dress Down Day to raise money to support the Snack Pack Pals Program in October.
Wear Yellow to raise awareness and funds for a cure for Pediatric Cancer in September.
