New Lunch Tables for St. John the Baptist Catholic School

St. John the Baptist Catholic School - located in New Brighton, MN - is in need of new lunch tables for the school cafeteria. Our current tables have served us well over the years, and it is time to replace many of them as several have started to deteriorate and break. As you can see from the picture, seats are falling off some of our tables!

Did you know that the school cafeteria is an area of the school that serves all students, preschool through 8th grade? 

Did you know that we use the school cafeteria for many things throughout the school year? 

  • Lunch: All students eat lunch in the school cafeteria every school day, and they need a place to sit! It is not only a time to eat, but it is an opportunity for our students to make friends and strengthen relationships outside of the classroom. 
  • J-Care: Students who are here for childcare before and after school as well as during the summer use the school cafeteria to do activities. The tables serve many purposes from coloring to playing games to completing homework.
  • Large Group Instruction: When full grades choose to meet for instruction, they will often choose the school cafeteria. Students need tables to complete work and collaborate with their classmates.
  • School Events: We use the school cafeteria throughout the school year for large events such as our Spring Family Fun Night! Over the years, families have enjoyed time playing bingo, sharing meals, and visiting in this large space. Tables are a necessity!

As you can see, our cafeteria is used daily throughout the year, and we would LOVE to provide tables that are safe to sit on and not falling apart. 

Our wish is to purchase ten (10) new tables which cost approximately $2200 each. 

We are hoping for your support on Give to the Max Day, November 17th, 2022, to put funds towards our goal. 

Thank you so much for considering our school for your Give to the Max donation!
