FAREWELLS

We said farewell to Bill and Judy Petrak as
their son Anthony graduated from Aquinas
this year. Congratulations to Anthony and
thank you Bill and Judy for all you have done
in support of our school.
We also said farewell to Andrew and Carissa
Wynne as our Core Chairs; however, they
will remain on PTO and will now serve as the
Finance Chair. Nick and Janet Norko will be
our new Core Chairs; they were formerly the
Faculty and Staff Support Chair. Again, we
want to thank both these families for all they
do in support of the school.

PTO REORGANIZATION

In order to more efficiently manage the
volunteer opportunities at the school,
the Volunteer Chair was absorbed into
the Faculty and Staff Support Chair. The
Faculty and Staff Support Chair now has
three subcommittees, Community Event
Coordinator, Room Parent Liaison, Volunteer
Data Management. These positions will be
filled over the summer.

SKATE SOCIAL

FALL FESTIVAL

Save the Date-the Fall Festival will be held
on October 12th here on the Aquinas campus.
Parents, lots of volunteers are needed for this
event. A SignUp will be available at the end of
August. Watch the website for more details in
the next few weeks.

BOX TOPS

Don't forget to save your box tops over the
summer! We earned $600 for the school
last year but we know we can do much
better. We will have exciting rewards for the
teachers and students who collect the most
during each scheduled submission date.

LOYALTY CARDS

Donate to the school as you shop! Register
your loyalty cards from Giant, and Harris
Teeter and the retailer will calculate a
percentage of your purchase and make a
donation to the school.

SCRIP CARDS

PTO is expanding the Scrip card program
participation opportunities this year. You
can donate to Aquinas by purchasing a gift
card through Scrip. You pay face value and
a percentage of each gift card purchased
goes directly to your Aquinas PTO. Over
700 retailers participate!
●● The PTO will purchase Scrip cards from

popular retailers and have them available
for purchase at face value at designated
times through a PTO volunteer.

●● If you prefer to pay with cash or check,

there will be a PTO volunteer available
once a month to process your on-line
orders for pick up.

●● Get started this summer by visiting

The Skate Social was enormously popular
last year and due to all the positive feedback,
PTO has decided to offer a second one. On
Saturday, September 15th, PTO will host the
Skate Social at the Prince William Ice Center
from 5:50 to 8:30 PM. Tickets are $10 each
and include a skate rental. A second Skate
Social will be held on February 15th.

RACE FOR
THE GREEN
On a very chilly March day, the students
and faculty of St. Thomas Aquinas Regional
School participated in the 8th annual Race for
Education as they raced for the green. This
year they followed the footsteps of St. Patrick
as he walked many miles on his journey of
faith. Markers set up along the course marked
the notable stops on St. Patrick's path.
Thank you to all those who supported our
Race for the Green. The goal for this fundraiser
was $10,000 but we raised $13,500! This
coming school year the race will be held in
November. Stay tuned to learn the theme and
find out ways you can volunteer.
