4.      Calendar Sales - Thank you to everyone who sold a “Scholars Leaders and Saints” calendar, to our generous sponsors and to everyone who talked it up to your friends and relatives, or bought one for yourself or as a gift!  The results are in! Overall, we showed a total profit of $225,000 for the Diocese of Knoxville schools for our 1st year. The Chattanooga Deanery will receive +/- $23,000 for tuition assistance and OLPH School Annual Fund has received $7,230. Our school came out with 17 winners, St. Jude had 15 and Notre Dame had 26, with prizes ranging from $100 to $500 each. Checks are supposed to be mailed out to the winners this weekend. We are aware that some of the calendars still have not been delivered and are in communication with Knoxville about the problem. The combination of bulk rate mailing and the holiday rush seems to have the last shipment in delay.

KDG - Individual cereal cups
1st Grade - Individual small milk or juice boxes

2.      Calendar Sales - The Diocesan calendar sale ended on December 23. The first batch of calendars was mailed on Dec 15th and the second bulk mailing did not go out until after the deadline of Dec 23rd, anywhere from Dec 27 to January 4. All 365 drawings were done on January 3, and all raffle tickets received to that point were entered for a total of 8,073.  It is our understanding that a few OLPH names were among the winners! Checks will be mailed out to the winners in the next few weeks and winning names will be shared throughout the year. Unfortunately, we did not reach our goal of 1,000 calendars sold (We sold in excess of 450, but the final numbers are not yet in). We will announce the winning grade after we receive the December numbers from Knoxville. Thank you for your support of this important fundraiser for our Catholic Schools Tuition Assistance Fund!
