Thank you, Talpa alumni!

July 2, 2014 by Bryan Grassmann

To our wonderful Talpa alumni:

As we come to the end of the 2013-2014 school year, we want to thank you for supporting Our Lady of Talpa School during the past 11 months.

Our school-wide theme this year was “Sharing what we have that God may multiply our blessings.” Through gifts of time, talent and treasure to Our Lady of Talpa School this year, Talpa alumni have truly shared what they have to multiply the blessings of our school.

The Talpa community is thankful for alumni support for our two Alumni Association events this school year: the Alumni Casino night in November and, most recently, the 3rd Annual Alumni BBQ in May.

We are grateful and happy to announce the Alumni BBQ raised just over $1,200.00, which has gone to support our Extended Day Program. Thank you! (Please look below to view a few photos from this event.)

Please keep an eye here, on Talpa’s website, and on Talpa’s Alumni Facebook page this fall to learn about alumni events and opportunities during 2014-2015 school year.

In the meantime, several of our alumni have asked about ways they can support Talpa School. Here is one big way:

                    Our Lady of Talpa School is currently working to close a $50,000.00 tuition gap (the difference
between the amount it costs us to educate every student, and the combined amount each family
                     is able to pay for tuition). 

                    Our goal is to raise $50,000.00 through our Sponsor-A-Student Program to close this gap by the
                     end of the 2014-2105 school year. The program offers a variety of giving levels, to which you or a
                     group of Talpa classmates or friends may contribute to enable us to continue to serve all children
                     and families at Talpa School: 

                       •  $4,800 – Actual cost to educate one child at Our Lady of Talpa School
                       •  $2,700 – Annual tuition for one child
                       •  $245 – Monthly tuition for one child
                       •  $200 – Registration fee for one family
                       •  $320 – Full uniform set for one child
                       •  $20 – Monthly Extended Day Program fee

Again, thank you for your continued involvement with the Talpa family. Our generous alumni are true blessings to Talpa School!

May God bless you!
