Please read their thoughts below on why it is important to them to participate.

“The Annual Fund allows our children, teachers and staff to directly benefit from the money raised. It will aid our school in becoming a greater and stronger place for our children to thrive and grow. It truly is a crucial part of our school’s success!”

“We believe it is important to contribute to the Annual Fund because it is a direct investment in the improvement of education and environment for the administration, staff, and most importantly our children.”

“Funds from the annual fund go directly to the important needs of the school to improve the environment in which our children learn and grow, making an already terrific faith based education that much better.”

“We give to the Annual Fund because our family believes in St. Cecilia Catholic School. We have 3 boys who attend the school and nothing matters more to us than helping them grow into strong, intelligent, and contributing members of our society. We know that the school puts every dollar from the Annual Fund toward the improvement of our childrens’ educations so really, there is no better way for us to spend our money.”
– Trey & Emily Burke – 1st Grade Class Coordinators


“As we think about this year’s annual fund Tabitha and I can’t help but reflect back 15 years to when our oldest daughter started at St. Cecilia’s. There have been so many advancements through equipment in the classrooms, building upgrades, sports and theater upgrades, etc. and none of this would have been possible without the generous donations of the friends and families of St. Cecilia through the annual fund.”
– Michael and Tabitha Koby – 2nd Grade Class Coordinators


“As an alumni and now parents of three boys, the St. Cecilia community is more than just a school to us…it is like our extended family. St. Cecilia provides exceptional learning opportunities for our children, both in and out of the classroom. Donating to the Annual Fund allows the school to provide innovative ways to educate our students as well as support a faith based environment of caring and service that develops exemplary character traits. We cannot think of a better investment!”
Posie and Angie Clinton – 3rd Grade Class Coordinators
