Want a Free Dress Pass?

Contribute to Summerfest and earn a free dress pass by donating bottled water! We are requesting that each school family supply one case (quantity 24) of Dasani brand water (20 oz. bottle size), which is available at most stores for a nominal price. Families who contribute at least one case will receive a free dress pass for each of their SAM students. 


Water may be dropped off at the KINDER KITCHEN anytime during school hours through June 1st. Free dress passes are limited to one per student in each participating family. Please make sure to write your family name on the plastic case wrapping so that we can provide you the free dress passes. Thank you for your support as always! Free dress will be on Wednesday, June 6th.



Cake Walk


We are asking that all students turn in two cakes for the Summerfest cake walk. Turn in your cakes to the Parish Hall on Friday, June 1st, between 7:30 – 8:15 AM. Turn in your two cakes in a cake box, labeled with the student’s name, grade and ingredients. Cover all cakes with a clear lid or plastic wrap. Visit Decor Party Supply for a 10% discount on cake supplies!


For every cake turned in, students will receive one drink ticket to be redeemed during Summerfest 2018. Additionally, students who bring in cakes will earn a free dress pass if the total number of cakes brought in for their class is equal to or greater than the total number of students in their class. The top cake designs in each class will be entered in a drawing for $10 Cougar Cash.
