A Message from our Pastor

A Night of Elegance

Dear Friends,

We are very excited about the new location for our annual Guardian Angel

Dinner & Auction. Bringing this key fundraising event into our school enables us to

recognize all the good that the Guardian Angel Dinner & Auction has done over the

years. This room itself has seen numerous improvements over the years, principally

the new roof and new floor. The technology improvements in our building are able

to be showcased for your enjoyment. In so many ways the Guardian Angel Dinner

& Auction has helped us provide a Catholic Education for our students. They are

the reason for what we do and we are now celebrating in the place where our

children learn to be Disciples of the Lord.

Your presence tonight is a verification of the fine work being done by

administrators, teachers and staff in creating a community of learning. That community

would be sorely lacking if it did not have you, the parents, grandparents

and benefactors, to count as key members. Together we can forge ahead and make our school a

great one. This year we opened with over 400 students and began the school year as an Accredited School

in the State of Nebraska. An important part of being accredited is that we look for signs and proof that we

are indeed doing a fine job forming our youth: teaching them how to love, think, communicate, and share.

In recent test scores our students ranked well ahead of the average in almost all categories. But we will not

stop there. There are always ways to improve instruction and we will use every means possible to help our

youth graduate, possessing the skills and sound values that will form a foundation for them to become adults

in the church and the world.

I thank you for coming to our Guardian Angel Dinner & Auction. I hope you have a great time and

we can raise lots of money for our School.

We also use this occasion to bid goodbye to our retiring principal, Mr. Dave Garland, who has given

most of his education career to the children of this school. God Bless you, Mr. Garland, and we honor

you with a special salute.

Sincerely,

Fr. Owen W. Korte

Pastor

A Message from our Principal

Dear St. Gerald School Families and Friends,

Thank you so much for supporting our St. Gerald Guardian Angel Dinner

& Auction! Some of you have joined us in the past, and for some of you, this

is your first experience with our fun evening. This is such a great way to raise

money for our school and parish. Being together for a night of good food and

fellowship is well worth all of the hard work that goes into putting this event

together.

This year we are excited about raising money that will be used in several

areas of our school. We are planning on adding more technology (a mobile laptop lab) to our school.

Your generous donations from the evening will help finance these projects. Please know that all of

your help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you also to the many volunteers who have worked so hard to make this evening such a big

success! We could not have gotten this all done without your help!! God bless you all!!!

Sincerely,

1

Dave Garland, Principal

The first three donation levels (Guardian Angel, Angel of

Love, and Angel of Faith) will be displayed at St. Gerald School, with

donor names inscribed on a plaque.

We have added a new giving level for 2013, “St. Gerald
