The theme for the 2019-2020 school year is “Around the World.” This theme reminds us that we need to celebrate and learn about different cultures from all over the globe. As our students virtually “travel” around the world in their studies this year, one thing is still clear to us all – there is no place like home. Little Flower is home to our current families as well as those who began their education here but have since ventured to new and exciting destinations.
As you know, Little Flower conducts an Annual Fund, beginning in November of each year, in conjunction with our annual All-Class Reunion. The reunion is a night filled with memories of good times and good friends at Little Flower. Following the reunion, we refocus our energy into providing more memorable experiences for the children at Little Flower today.
As you may remember, donations to last year’s Annual Fund were directed toward updating security in our aging building, specifically focusing on security cameras and new interior doors. We will continue to focus on security for one more year, this time addressing exterior building access and equipping the school with emergency supplies. It is not typical for us to have the same focus for two consecutive years, but we have made security a priority at our school, and for good reason. With the evolution of the demographic of our student body, we find that a good number of our children have difficult home lives. For many Little Flower is literally a safe place where they feel happy and comfortable. It is important that we maintain a secure environment for them while they are with us – at “home.”
In conjunction with our 93rd anniversary, we are compiling “93 Reasons to Love Little Flower Catholic School.” You can add your reason by visiting 93reasons.com. Thus, we are setting a goal of $93,000 for this year’s Annual Fund. Our Annual Fund is essential to the operation of Little Flower School. It helps with the costs of sustaining programs and improving facilities that are not covered by tuition. A successful Annual Fund is key to our continued sustainability.
Little Flower Parish and School have played an important role in the lives of thousands of students. We want to continue to provide a valuable experience for the students of today and tomorrow. In order to do this, we need your help. Whether you are a first-time donor or a long-time benefactor, your assistance will make a positive impact on our students. We hope you will consider a gift to the Annual Fund.
The enclosed brochure will highlight the importance of the Annual Fund. We have accomplished so much in recent years due in the most part to your unfailing generosity. We never want to take that for granted.
For those who are able, we invite you to begin or increase your investment in Little Flower School through a generous donation to this year’s Annual Fund. You can be significant in the lives of our children through your generous financial gift and can help us to carry on the tradition and promise of Little Flower.
Thank you for any help you can provide. Please continue to pray for God’s continued blessings on our school.
