Important Upcoming Dates

Christmas Card Fundraiser - Accepting Nominations from October 10th - 17th

A long standing tradition at SMSA continues again this year with the Christmas Card Fundraiser, in which students in grades 3 through 8 will be creating and selling hand-made Christmas cards. These cards will be sold for $2.00 each by the St. Mary’s Springs families after all Masses at all Holy Family Parish sites on Saturday, December 7 and Sunday, December 8, 2019. 


We will also have a movie and popcorn afternoon, the day before Christmas Break, where students can bring in a donation to watch the movie of their choice and enjoy popcorn. Everyone will be able to participate, whether they bring in a donation or not. 


All proceeds from the card sale and movie/popcorn afternoon will benefit a local child (Fond du Lac County) and his/her family, who is currently or has had medical concerns/conditions.


If you know of a child and their family that you feel is deserving of a nomination, please click here to fill out the form.


All nominations will be reviewed and a recipient will be chosen by a random draw.  Nominations will be accepted from Thursday, October 10 – Thursday, October 17, 2019.
