This is the last call for ads and dedications in our annual Casino Night and Silent Auction Program. These programs are passed out ALL YEAR to visitors of our school and therefore continue to reach the community even after Casino Night is over.
Do you know someone who is looking to expand their clientele? Tell them to place an ad in our program and they will reach 300 more people in one night! Do you own your business and are looking for a way to get the word out? This is a great, affordable way to advertise to the community.
The program also serves as a "yearbook" for St. Peter Claver Preschool and Kindergarten. Order a dedication page and keep a special memento of your child's time at our school. They grow so fast, capture this special time with your loving words and their adorable photos.
Please return or mail the forms back to the school office by November 4th.
