The Red Wheel fundraiser is one of the biggest fundraisers for SJCS. Frozen food items ranging from burritos to cookie dough are pre-ordered by customers solicited by SJCS students. The funds from this sale are used to purchase items such as computers, skill-based software and games, and other supplemental learning materials.
The German Buffet is held the first Sunday in November each year. Homemade German sausage, pork and kraut, hot German potato salad, creamed corn, mashed potatoes, breads, and homemade desserts are prepared and served by the families of St. Joseph Catholic School. In conjunction with the buffet, a raffle is held that features a top prize of $1,000 with as many as forty additional prizes ranging from $500 cash to $25.00 gift certificates. The funds from this sale typically are used for the upkeep of the school or for large purchase items such as new textbooks.
St. Joseph Catholic School parents and St. Joseph parishioners are asked to participate in our scrip program. Through the school one can purchase scrip for Ellinwood Family Foods, Wal-Mart, and Amazon. From four percent at Wal-mart to five percent at EFF, SJS earns funding when scrip is purchased.
