Update:
Thank you so much for your interest in help our school recoupe the money that was stolen over the weekend!  So many wonderful and generous people have stepped forward both through this GoFundMe campaign and by phone to our school that we have surpassed our goal of covering the stolen money. 

We now have over three times the amount of money we had originally planned to give out in scholarships!  What a wonderful outcome to such a horrendous act! 

We thank everyone who has donated and everyone who was planning to donate. 

If you still feel compelled to help even though we've covered our losses, you are certainly welcome to call our school.  There are plenty of kids that can use the extra scholarship money for school next year! 

God bless you all!

Original message:

As we prepare to close the school on June 30 for good  due to the Archdiocese School Restructuring Plan, some heartless soul decided to add salt to our wound by breaking in, ransacking the office and stealing our safe.  The safe held cash to be used this week for end of year festivities,  Field Day, 8th grade banquet and money to be used for scholarships for some of our students moving on to other Catholic schools next year. 

Our school community has been through a lot this year with the closing of the school.  We have worked hard to make this a special year for our students and to have this happen is the worst kind of ending.  We don't want this to be their final memory of our beloved school.

If anyone would like to help recoupe this loss, we would be most appreciative.   If you are interested in helping, please act soon as school is out on June 11 and we'll be closing our books on June 30. 

Thank you so much and God bless you.

Because we have had an AMAZINGLY GENEROUS response from so many people and businesses, both through this site and through media reports, we have covered all of our losses and then some. We are eternally grateful to all that have donated and will send official thank you notes soon. We have now shut down the donation function on this site. We are leaving up the list of donors and comments because everyone should say a little prayer in thanks for all of the people that donated and helped restore our faith in humanity! Please know that if you still feel compelled, you can call the school directly to donate. Thank you and God bless you all!
