St. Casimir is more than a school – it is a family. My granddaughter was well prepared for high school upon graduating from St. Casimir and my grandson will be as well. The faculty and staff provide a positive influence on the children, both morally and academically. —
Fundraising at St. Casimir School is accomplished through the following:
The Home & School Association funding activities include gift wrap, candy sale, Race for Education, citrus fruit, Lenten foods, and shrimp feast . Our new event for the 2011-12 school year is our Come Sail Away Gala to be held on Saturday, May 12th at the Maryland Science Center. Read our Wrap-Up News Letter about the Come Sail Away Gala.
The Development Office is responsible for the Annual Fund for tuition assistance. The yearly program begins in October and continues through June 30th of that year. Contributions are solicited from alumni, parishioners, faculty/staff, school board members, and friends of our school. Our total contributions for the 2011 -2012 campaign is $23,355.
