Welcome! Dear Friends of Lourdes Central Catholic School, Welcome to our Annual Lourdes Event. I hope you enjoy your “Escape the to Tropics” evening! At the beginning of the school year, Bishop Conley announced the theme for the Diocese of Lincoln as “Love Made Visible.” This evening, the generosity of our sponsors, donors and volunteers demonstrates their love, made visible, to the young people at Lourdes. Through your stewardship you allow our community to give witness to the face of Jesus Christ and his love to future generations. God Bless,

Fr. Mark Cyza President

Special Project Science is fun, or so science teachers, Mrs. Caitlin Falcone and Ms. Ellen Wulf promise! This year our special project is the upgrading of the science/lab equipment for the science program at Lourdes! Please take a moment to consider some of the needs listed below and be generous during the bidding on this very special project which will affect the education of our students for years to come. Mrs. Falcone’s wish list includes: 

 

Microscopes with Wifi Camera - Allows students to share pictures/videos of what they are viewing under the microscope. Currently the number of microscopes is inadequate. These microscopes connect to the students’ iPads and allow lab partners to view the same object at one time. Stereomicroscopes - Stereomicroscopes allow students to view thicker structures. Vernier Biology Probes

Ms. Wulf’s wish list includes:    


Eye-Wash Station for the Chemistry Lab LabQuest 2 - LabQuest 2 is a data-collection device that helps to enhance student learning in STEM* by providing hands-on science in the classroom or in the field. LabQuest 2 Software - A one time purchase that gives the school and students access to the software necessary to utilize LabQuest 2 (the app for the iPad and a program for a PC). Electronic Scales - Current electronic scales only measure to the first decimal place which causes difficulties when measuring chemical compounds. In addition to the lack of accuracy there are not enough to share one per lab bench. Having additional electronic scales would help to make time spent in the lab much more efficient and practical for students.

Raffles and Fun! Last Table Standing At the beginning of dinner, you will have the option to purchase as a table a $100 raffle ticket ($10 per person at your table). During dinner we will start eliminating tables until we have a winner! There will be a 60/40 split of the coffer. The winning table takes home 60% of the total and 40% goes to the school. If all tables participate, you have a chance to win $2,400 for your table, that’s $240 per person!! If any table does not wish to participate - you can buy their raffle ticket! If you are the only person at your table who wants to participate, you pay the total table fee of $100. If your table wins YOU get the pot. Good Luck!

Envelope Raffle Here’s a chance to win a lot for a little! 120 people will have the opportunity to purchase an envelope for $20 and take a chance on the win of the evening! If your envelope has a card inside reading “You’ve Won!” you may select one silent auction item of your choice! Class projects and Super-Silent auction items are excluded from this raffle. Just imagine the possibilities. All envelopes must be sold for this raffle to apply. Envelopes MUST NOT be opened until the auctioneer announces the end of the raffle at 7:00 p.m. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase at the door.

Tropical Vacation Raffle Enjoy an 8-day, 7-night stay for two adults in sunny Puerto Vallarta, Mexico! The winner of this raffle will enjoy deluxe accommodations among the jungled landscapes of the Sierra Madre Mountains, world -class golf, white sand beaches, plus abundant shopping, restaurants and nightlife. Includes airfare voucher. Reservations must be made 60 days in advance. Tickets will be sold by our students during the social hour and dinner.
