There is an annual Senior Father/Daughter dance competition for the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy.

 

Mother/Son Dance

Dinner/dance for all male students at DeSales and their mothers/significant female. This year’s theme was Sherlock Holmes. Prizes were raffled to those in attendance. There has traditionally been a senior slide show.

Bake Sales

Four bake sales are held each school year during lunch periods. Volunteers are needed to bake items and work the table during lunch periods.

 

Birthday Locker Signs

Each student receives a locker sign on their birthday (or half-birthday for students with a summer birthday)

 

Used Uniform Collection

Gently worn uniform items (jumpers, blouses, pants, shirts, ties, belts, spirit wear, etc) are collected throughout the year and are sold each summer at a sale. Items can also be purchased throughout the school year by contacting the Mothers Club or the school office. Donations can be brought into school and dropped off in designated boxes by the visitor’s entrance/main office. All items are stored at school.

 

Labels for Education

Campbell’s Labels for Education are collected in order to earn items for our school. Find the labels on Campbell’s products, Pepperidge Farm products, Bic school supplies, etc. Cut them out and send them to school with your student. Labels can be dropped off in the school office. 

There is also a new way our school can earn points electronically. If parents, teachers, alumni and students register their Kroger and Giant Eagle cards on the eLabels website, we can earn points when purchases are made at the checkout at these stores of the participating items. Please register here today! The electronic points along with the paper points can give us extra points for items on our wish list for the school. Please visit the Labels for Education website for more information about the program. If you would like to view our wish list, type in the school's zip code (43224) and choose our school name.

 

Mothers Club Proceeds
Each year, the Mothers Club purchases a gift for the school from our proceeds. For example, we have purchased a kiln for the ceramics class, lab tables for a science room, air conditioning repair in the Chapel and trainer’s room, teacher workroom supplies, as well as several scholarships.
