We randomly selected the school, which was nominated by Mary Ann Schweers, a first-grade teacher. The school will receive $5,000 for technology upgrades, and Mary Ann will receive $250 for her winning nomination!

St. Mary’s Principal Jamie Hartrich says:

“We are a small school working to make sure that every child, no matter his or her financial situation, can afford a Catholic, faith-based education. St. Mary’s is very excited to accept this giveaway as this will allow us to update aging network infrastructure and expand our building’s wireless capabilities to support Chromebooks for online learning in the classrooms. These electronic resources supplement classroom instruction, as well as assists in differentiating learning.”

One of our core values at SignUpGenius is to advance the missions of others with our success. It’s truly a gift to be able to give back to schools.

Congratulations to the students and staff at St. Mary’s. And thank you to everyone who entered this year’s giveaway!

I can’t tell you how much your website has helped us to organize volunteers at our school. After using SignUpGenius for our Bookfair and Oktoberfest we received lots of positive feedback from parents saying how easy it was to use. Chairpersons for other committees were anxious to use the sign-ups for their events, and now it’s become routine for us.... I’ve tried other list sharing websites, but your excellent customer service and list features convinced me early on that SignUpGenius was the right choice.
