Sign-Up Parties

Class, family, and adult sign-up parties will be available the evening of the auction.  It is the auction committee’s goal to have one or more parties hosted from each grade.


Class party ideas include bowling, tailgating party, ice cream party, sledding, cookie decorating, end of the year pool party, etc.

Family or adult party ideas include a themed dinner, escape room, adult sports competitions, family gatherings, family Valentines Dance, etc.
With all party donations, the hosts cover all the expenses associated with the party. Parents are able to sign up for the parties the evening of the auction.
While it's great to be able to include the entire class in a party, due to the cost, parties may be limited to the number of attendees. 
If you or a group of parents together are interested in hosting a class party, family party, or adult party, please complete the order form below and submit it to the school office in an envelope with "Sign-Up Parties" on it.

Why does the school need a fundraiser?

The Home & School Association uses all donated proceeds to directly support St. Augustin School. We support student enrichment programs, such as ALEKS and D.A.R.E. We support our teachers and staff with reimbursements for classroom supplies, provide a special Christmas bonus, and celebrate our teachers with teacher appreciation events throughout the year. We help the school operate efficiently by paying for school messenger and school bookings programs. Lastly, when the fundraiser is successful in raising funds above and beyond the goal, we can fund special requests from Principal Spike and teachers.  Our fundraising goal this year is $50,000.

Thank you for your support!  The prize you will receive will be a mystery; it could be a gift card, item, or an experience that has been donated by one of the many local, generous businesses!  Each prize will be valued at over $25.
