The Penny Party is our school’s biggest fundraiser of the year.  Gather your friends and family, bring some food and wine, and get ready to win some prizes. 

o   When you get there, you’ll pick a number from 1-400ish. You’ll receive approximately 50 pieces of paper with that number on it. 

o   You’ll also receive a booklet listing all the prizes, which are grouped into rounds.  There are usually around 50 rounds, with 10 prizes in each round – that’s 500 prizes!  Most rounds cost between $.50 and $1.50, but rounds for the bigger prizes near the end of the night are around $5-10. Examples of past prizes include gift cards to the Pub, bikes, and TVs.

o   If you are interested in any of the prizes in a given round, you place that amount and your number in a bowl for the chance to win. 

o   Our emcee will announce the winning numbers after each round. 

o   There are also gift baskets for you to try to win!


Grand Prize Raffle: Raffle tickets for your child to sell were sent home in January.  Tickets are $10 each or 5 for $40.  Unsold tickets must be sent back to school by Feb 19. Just take a look at these fabulous prizes including the grand prize $3,500 gift of travel!


Gift Baskets: We are asking each grade to put together a themed gift basket to be raffled off.  Each family typically contributes $2-$5. Your homeroom mom will send more information.


Help spread the word for the school's largest fundraiser. Share the event flyer with friends and family and be sure to sell those raffle tickets!

2018 Penny Party Kickoff!

This year’s Olympics-themed Penny Party is only a couple of weeks away. The kids at StJP celebrated the Penny Party Kickoff with a Procession of Flags and Medal Ceremony. Each class decorated and carried a country flag and each student received a Penny Party version of a gold medal....a blue ribbon with a solid chocolate golden coin attached. Great fun was had by all.
