Principal Suk’s Weekly Newsletter
You can choose to pack your child’s lunch or enroll in the lunch service from the Archdioscese School Food Services – Fresh Start Healthy Meals. After you enroll you can start ordering lunch from the menu (posted below monthly) and order via the slip we send. We offer free or reduced lunch pricing based on financial need.
We are proud to provide quality Catholic Education to families of all economic backgrounds. Donate today and provide a child a faith based, personalized education that will prepare them to be service oriented, bilingual, biliterate and bicultural leaders.
Nearly 50% of our students are on a reduced tuition rate and qualify for free or reduced priced lunch. We could not so this without the help of our families, alumni, and community through a tax deductible contribution to our school.
Student Scholarships – Donate $750 – $950 a month for 10 months to cover one scholarship for a deserving student. Our goal this year is to provide close to 50 students with a partial scholarship, making our total fundraising goal for scholarships, $380,000.
Technology and STEM Resources – Donate $60 – $300 to help us purchase a coding robot or a Chromebook for our 5-8th grade students. Our goal is to possibly purchase five robots and replenish our Chromebooks as necessary.
Green Space – Donate $10 – $50 to help our school increase it’s green space by purchasing a garden box, a tree and a planter box, or tools to work in our ever growing garden.
Beautification of our School Grounds – Our gorgeous school building was built in the 1950’s. Now more than 70 years old, we are looking to improve our aesthetics and make our students proud of the place many students consider their second home. Donate to help us renovate our restrooms and cafeteria roof, and one day add extra classrooms for art and music as well as possibly a resource room.
Unrestricted Donation – If you feel like contributing and don’t know what area to designate your donation to, allow us to allocate it were it is needed.
Corporate Matching Gifts - Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to our school may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

Parish – St. Sebastian Church
We provide daily opportunities for worship as a school community and in individual classrooms. Moreover, we celebrate the weekly mass, Catholic feast days, and church seasons as a community of faith.
St. Sebastian Catholic Church is located across the street from our school. It is a multi-cultural congregation, with active Spanish, English, and French-speaking communities. All are welcome!
