It's the community's support and your efforts that make Holy Name School successful. There are many opportunities for raising funds and many resources and creative means for doing so.
Our Harvest Festival is spectacular every year! One of the best aspects of the Harvest Festival is the community atmosphere that the festival affords us. Everyone is needed; everyone helps. The students, the faculty and staff, the parents, the parishioners, those who advertised in this year’s outstanding festival booklet, corporate angels, volunteers, those who headed committee subsections, bakers, cashiers, musicians, crafters, those who bought a variety of auction tickets and other items, friends, and neighbors from far and near, all made the day what it was, memorable and enjoyable. Thank you one and all!
As another year approaches, we are currently accepting donations. For more information on what we are accepting, please view our auction request letter. Also, if you are looking for ways to help please view our PALS flyer and our bake sale flyer.
The Holy Name Parish Harvest Festival is a unique opportunity to bring together both the parish and school community. Planning begins many months prior to the festival date. Our planning committee members bring their knowledge, talents, experience, and so much enthusiasm to this event. Parents, parishioners, and staff of the Holy Name School community make up the committee. There are many areas associated with the festival, and we welcome all who would be willing to share their time and talents. The Harvest Festival is a memory-making event.
The Holy Name School/Parish Harvest Festival has become the schools largest annual fundraising event. It always promises to be a fun-filled, family oriented, and community building day featuring many activities for children as well as adults. For example, the Harvest Festival includes an exciting Silent Auction and Penny Social. This consists of a room entirely filled with the most amazing offerings and prizes. This room has something for everyone! In the past we have offered such things as, American Doll Girls, golf packages, Red Sox tickets, Patriots tickets, Celtics tickets, signed sports memorabilia, theatre tickets, Regis and Kelly Live tickets, weekend ski getaways, concerts tickets, fine jewelry, art, and the most up to date electronics.
All of the proceeds from the Harvest Festival go to support the continued efforts of Holy Name School. Past revenues have enabled Holy Name School to construct a beautiful playground area for children ages four through eleven, replacement of a much-needed roof, and other necessary capital improvements to the school facility. The returns from other harvest festivals help to benefit the school through three major initiatives to enrich student learning. Some of these include educational field trips, the purchase of new books for changing core curriculums, and the investment in an iPad program that will enable the students to “join the new wave of technology.” For financial information on the Harvest Festival, please review our most recent summary report.
