H&S is involved in supporting school activities such as: Battle of the Books, book fairs, fundraisers, Catholic Schools Week, room-parent volunteers, school supplies, teacher appreciation, spirit wear, trivia night and trunk or treat… just to name a few. We are always looking for volunteers!! Almost every committee needs help in some capacity and chair shadows are encouraged.

St. Thomas More AUCTION
BENEFITING FUNDS generated from our auction support our school and all its educational programs, sports, cultural enrichment, inclusive education, and much more! If you are unable to attend this year’s auction but would like to make a donation, you are welcome to do so by mailing a check written to STM to the parish or school office marked – Attn: Auction Committee. Donations are also accepted through the auction website.
FUND-A-NEED: We invite our community to invest in the 2022-2023 Fund-A-Need initiative to support the development of life-long learners by enriching classrooms with enhanced technology and other items needed. Last year we were able to provide brand new classrooms for 4 teachers and do other facility updates. We hope to update our entry way making it more safe and secure and performing a complete renovation of Flannagan Hall.
