ST. PAUL SCHOOL MARKET DAY
As the 2008-09 school year begins the St. Paul PTO Market Day program continues to move forward and grow. The program has brought in an average of over $500 a month and has helped fund many things that the PTO has purchased for the school over the years. Market Day is a monthly “food co-op” fund raising program that offers numerous food items with an average of 10 percent coming back to St. Paul School and Parish. The September Market Day order forms are available in the narthex. Please feel free to take extra forms to encourage family, friends and co-workers to place an order. If you would like to know more about Market Day, please feel free to call Tom Cullison at 330-724-3218. You can also check out market day during the open house.
