The Home & School Association provides service through volunteer efforts for many events at SBA throughout the school year. Because they do not fundraise, they request a $45 per family donation to help take care of all the special activities that Home & School help support. To make a family donation visit -

Consider Volunteering with Home & School SBA’s Home & School Association is able to serve our school’s families, faculty and staff through the work of many volunteers. At the end of the current school year, we’ll be saying goodbye to a number of parents who have been valuable members of our volunteer team for a number of years—making this a great time for new parents to get involved! If you would like to know more about Home & School and the organization’s various volunteer needs, the next group meeting will provide a perfect opportunity to get more information.

SBA Project Graduation 2019-20

Dear St. Benedict at Auburndale Parents: A tradition for the St. Benedict seniors is a drug and alcohol free “lock-in” given by the senior parents. Over 95% of our seniors participate each year and they have a wonderful time. We rent out Incredible Pizza and they have unlimited play time, as well as unlimited pizza, drinks and snacks. Whether your child loves go-karts, bowling, putt-putt, laser tag or lots of video game. There is something for everyone! Each senior receives a goodie bag valued at over $100 as well as super door prizes that have included 32-inch flat screen TV’s, Yetis and Gift Cards to name a few. It will also be the last time they will all be together as a group.

Ticket price is $150 for those who pay now, price increases to $175 after September 30, 2019. The SBA Project Graduation committee also hosts a “Trivia Night” to raise money to provide a fun-filled night for our graduating seniors, to keep them safe and off the streets on graduation night. Our Project Graduation committee needs your help in a variety of ways. The Trivia Night is Saturday, March 21, 2020 at 6:30 pm in the SBA Dining Hall. We would like to invite you to be a part of this fun-filled night as a sponsor, volunteer or player. Trivia Night is an event that involves a competition of many teams of “experts” on various subjects. It is a competition that requires teams to answer ten rounds of ten questions about anything from science to nonsense. We are also looking for parents of freshmen, sophomores and juniors to get involved with Project Graduation to keep this wonderful tradition going in order that the future years maintain the success level we have experienced. We need several parents to volunteer during the event. On behalf of St. Benedict Project Graduation, we appreciate your help. Donations are tax deductible, and we would also like to offer our sponsors complimentary notice in our SBA Annual Report. Again, thank you for your support of this important event! SENIOR PARENTS, BE SURE TO SEND IN YOUR STUDENT’S RESERVATION AND PAYMENT! Sincerely, Amy Iovinelli SBA Project Graduation Committee Chair 901.849.9644 •
