IPHSA Fund Raising Programs
Incarnation depends upon money raised by our Home & School Association to fund special needs the school has. We realize that as a parent you may not be able to participate in every fundraiser. It is our goal to provide a variety of fundraisers in hopes that you will find something to support that suits you and your family.
Earning for Learning (September – October) Westshore Plaza supports our school by hosting a shopping rewards program where schools compete to win cash prizes up to $10,000. At the end of the six-week program, the points are tallied and the top five schools win cash prizes. Each dollar that a customer spends at Westshore Plaza can be turned into a point for our school.
Sally Foster/Cookie Dough/Entertainment Book (August – September) Sally Foster gift wrap features stylish designs that range from adorably cute to sophisticated and modern gift wrap. Their high quality giftwrap, delicious chocolates, gourmet gifts and practical items for the home are great for holidays, birthdays and all other occasions. The Entertainment Book is filled with hundreds of 50% off and 2-for-1 discounts for your area on the things you do everyday like dining, groceries, shopping, services, and attractions. Plus great discounts on travel, home furnishings and much more! Delicious Classic Recipe Cookie Dough tastes fresh out of the oven with 10 mouth-watering flavors to choose from.
Spaghetti Dinner (September) IPHSA hosts its “Welcome Back to School” dinner. This event is open to all ICS families and friends. Come enjoy a great dinner and spend some time with your ICS community.
Payday$ Raffle Sweepstakes (October - November) IPHSA is so excited to bring you our annual Payday$ Sweepstakes which offers you 26 chances to be a winner per $10 raffle ticket. Win $100 Monday through Thursday, $500 on Fridays, and our Grand Prize of $1,500 on our Reach for the Stars evening.
Reach for the Stars Gala (November) Our primary fundraiser consists of a fabulous dinner, dance, and auction. We offer both silent auction items and live auction items. Come enjoy an evening of friends, food, and fun. Items up for bidding include autographed sports memorabilia, relaxing vacation getaways, teacher/student outings, professional services, jewelry, etcetera. Each class does a priceless handcrafted project. Some of the classroom projects include the kindergarten quilt, the fourth grade cookbook, and the eighth scrapbook.
Santa Breakfast (December) Join us for the best Santa breakfast in town. This event always proves to be a jolly ole’ time for the little ones. There is lots of fun to be had. Everyone gets a chance to sit on Santa’s lap and whisper their Christmas list into his ear.
Teacher Appreciation Week (February) At ICS we always celebrate Teacher Appreciation during Catholic Schools Week. Each day of the week IPHSA plans a special treat for the teacher; i.e., bagels for breakfast, surprise goodies in their mailbox. At the end of the week on Friday, students get out at noon and IPHSA uses this opportunity to serve our teachers a fabulous lunch. We want our teachers to know how very much we appreciate them!
Scrapbooking Extravaganza (February) Admission for this event will include entry, door prize drawings, goodie bag, lunch and dinner, snacks and beverages throughout the day. Enjoy hours and hours of kid-free scrapbooking!
BJ’s Membership/Renewal(November/February) BJ’s offers our school five dollars for every new and renewal membership. We offer this service twice a year to assist our ICS families who are interested. It makes signing up or renewing easy. They give us a reduced price, additional months free, and a second card at no charge. What a deal!
