Week at a Glance

December 17 – 21, 2018

Decembers’ Cause of the Month: December – STA Cares
STA cares is a school-based cause that directly impacts students in this building.  STA Cares supports students in accessing any opportunity provided by St. Thomas Aquinas to participate fully in school life.  On a weekly basis this program supports grocery cards, student lunches, activities, and/or opportunities for students to be involved in school events etc. Funds raised this month will go directly to providing grocery gift cards and/or Christmas gifts for school families to support them through our Christmas break when students don’t have access to daily supports from the school building.
Donations can be made through School Cash Online
