Fall Subway Fundraiser
The safety of our students is a priority. That is why the Parent/Teacher Organization, PTO, is asking you to help us raise funds to purchase a more advanced security system. This is in addition to the regular support of classroom supplies, computer programs, “20 book” parties, Red Ribbon and Catholic Schools Week prizes, and more. Last year, thanks to your support, the gym was painted, storage was maximized under the stage and in the locker rooms, stage carpet was replaced, a set of Chromebooks was purchased for classes to share and our wireless network was greatly enhanced.
This fall, we will sell Subway® Coupon Cards for just $5 each. They do not require refrigeration and are provided to you so they may be delivered at time of purchase, saving you time and hassle. We ask that each family to sell 10 cards – if this is accomplished, we will HIT and QUIT! Meaning, we HIT our goal and we will not ask that parents assist with an additional “door-to-door” spring fundraiser of this type. This activity, along with the events put on by PTO throughout the year, will allow us to provide necessary support to our school.
10 Ccrds are being sent home with the youngest in each family. Once these cards are sold, and $50 is returned, you may request additional cards to sell. ANY UNSOLD CARDS MUST BE RETURNED IN GOOD CONDITION, OTHERWISE YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THE CARDS. All money/cards must be returned no later than December 1. Please send any cards or money back in a sealed envelope with your name and marked “PTO/Subway” for proper routing.
As an added bonus, please remember that anyone can purchase Subway® gift cards in the school office for face value. Through our SCRIP program, a percentage of each gift card purchased will be donated back to our school!
Please feel free to contact Molly Fox Phillips with any questions.
THANKS for your help and GO ROCKETS!!

P.S. Prizes are being offered at the levels and will be awarded based on total sales per family. To earn multiple prizes, each student must sell the number listed.
DON’T WANT TO SELL? If you’d rather not help your student sell the Subway® Coupon Cards, you may send the cards back and opt to make a cash donation. Simply complete the lower portion and send it back with $50 (equivalent to 10 cards at $5 each), payable to St. Jude PTO, and feel good knowing you made a difference!
St. Jude Spirit Wear Website
We will be handling St. Jude Catholic School spirit wear through a website now. Please visit https://www.4mypromo.com/store/category/438/store/ for more information. You may make an order at any time.
We are also looking for parent suggestions for items to add to the store. Since we do not need to keep items in stock, we will be able to offer a wider of products. If you have suggestions, please let Mrs. Urban know.
