    Hello, Fantastic Volunteers!

    Here comes March, and another Faculty Treats!  To volunteer, please click here.

    The Gonzaga faculty and staff are looking forward to a delicious breakfast provided by our wonderful team.

    Since the March 3rd Faculty Treats is on a Friday in Lent, we won't be serving bacon, ham, or sausage, so our Sign Up Genius has some new additions!

    If you are unable to attend, we can still use your help by purchasing items or cooking/baking beforehand and sending them in with your son or another volunteer.

    Service begins promptly at 7:00 am, so please be sure to have your items to school by this time. 

    And please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.

    We are sincerely grateful for your help!  Hoping to see you on March 3rd!
