Spirit Day: September 28, 2017


St. Francis de Sales School will celebrate our 11th annual Spirit Day on Thursday, September 28. Our theme for this year is Can't Hide that Eagle Pride! Spirit Day is a time for students, parents, staff and supporters to come together to celebrate our amazing school and raise funds for school improvements and programs for our students. Spirit Day is our largest PTO fundraiser.

School Pride

The day is full of fun experiences celebrating our school community, including an inspirational prayer service, enthusiastic pep rally, a Spirit Walk around the Lake Zurich community, a musical performance by Disney star Piper Curda, lunch, and more. We are also planning fun activities for the days leading up to the big event. Click here to view our Spirit Day video!

Fundraising Goals

In past years, Spirit Day proceeds represented 85% of the PTO's fundraising budget for the entire school year. Our goal is to get 100% participation for each student to raise at least $75 by selling raffle tickets or gathering tax-deductible donations. Planning is still in progress; however one raffle prize will be a signed Cubs jersey!

The specific items we plan to invest in with 2017 proceeds include:

  • Technology improvements
  • School lobby renovations to make our school more secure
  • Playground updates, including an age appropriate play structure for our pre-school and painted games on the new school parking lot
  • Updated gym equipment
