TARGET FUNDRAISER! Parents - a reminder local Target store has a School Fundraiser that is simple to use and provides the school much needed extra funding. Here's how it works: When parents, teachers and other school supporters use the REDcard, Target donates up to 1% of their purchases to the eligible K-12 school they designate. Each September, those funds are distributed to schools nationwide, including our High School. The Target Business Card saves you 5% on every shopping trip. Designate St. Joseph High School to help us out!
