Birthday Book Club
The Birthday Book Club is a way to honor your child's birthday by sponsoring a new book for our library. For a donation of $15.00 (covers the cost of the book and all processing costs) your child will receive the following when his or her birthday arrives: your child will get to select a book from our special selection of new picture books, chapter books and nonfiction books. A bookplate honoring your child will be placed in the book. Your child will have his or her name placed on the Birthday Board. Your child will receive a birthday pencil and bookmark. Your child will be the first one to check out the book and when the book is returned it will be placed into circulation for all to enjoy. If you would like to participate, please complete the form, Booked for Birthdays. A link to the book Wish List from our Librarian, Diana Hautala, can be found HERE.
United Way of King County
You are now able to give to St. Francis school through your United Way of King County workplace giving program! The United Way workplace campaign unites employees in all offices or branches of a company, and gives them an opportunity to donate, volunteer and speak out for causes that matter to them. You can see the results in your own backyard, even as you're part of a larger mission to affect change worldwide.
Contact your workplace United Way coordinators to find out when your company will be starting their campaign. Once it has begun, all you will need to do is write-in St. Francis of Assisi School, Burien, Washington, on your donation form for the organization you want to give to, how much you are donating (or the percentage of your donation to us), and the United Way will take care of getting your donation to us. Pretty easy! The funds you donate through this program will go to our Annual School Campaign for the school year we are in.
If your workplace does not currently participate in the United Way Workplace Giving program, please contact your local United Way office for details, or go online to United Way - Get Involved & Ways To Give, if you are interested in having your company participate.
The Gift-A-Book Program
This is an opportunity to donate books to the St. Francis of Assisi school or classroom libraries in honor of someone's birthday or a special event. This program was started in remembrance of Brittany Marie Boatright, a student at Aviation High School, whose vision and love of reading has inspired our children to get excited about reading. A special identifier will be placed inside the front cover honoring the gift, and the book is acknowledged in our weekly bulletin to school families. The donating student will have the first opportunity to check out the book.
