Lourdes Soup Supper

Lourdes Soup Supper

by Ariel Stuhr

On Sunday, November 3, the Lourdes Elementary Parent Teacher Organization(LEPTO) held its annual Soup Supper.  LEPTO raises funds to support extra-curricular activities for elementary students including Trunk or Treat, Catholic Schools Week activities, Teacher Appreciation, and Wellness Wednesdays.  The organization also donates funds for special projects such as installing new benches at the high school building, buying new playground equipment, etc.  Local businesses donated raffle ticket prizes and the elementary students sold tickets to anyone who wanted to test their luck. Parents brought salads and desserts and teachers volunteered to help out. The raffle ticket fundraiser earned $2300 for the school, with the soup supper raising approximately $5000 total; all proceeds went to the Lourdes Elementary.
