Support Holy Family
Holy Family is always looking to improve our historic building. Below are a few areas in which Holy Family is seeking donations to complete projects that will help improve our school.
Urban Family Garden Project
Last year Holy Family planted its first Urban Garden using a variety of alternative planting configurations, including raised beds and wooley pockets. This project enhances our science curriculum, and provides the opportunity for hands-on-learning for students of all ages. Additionally, this project results in the beautification of our campus and playground. Soil and bedding plants are an ongoing cost of this project.
Annual Cost: $300
The Middle School Art Gallery
Established in the summer of 2010 the Middle School Art Gallery is held in our middle school hallway and aims to expose our students to famous pieces of art. We are seeking additional prints of famous pieces of art. The gallery is already home to framed pieces from Piccaso and Van Gogh just to name a few. Due to the age of our students we ask that any planned donations be approved by the principal to ensure that all art is appropriate for our students.
Cost: $50-$100 a framed print
Barthelmes Strings Project
For the last several years, Holy Family has been blessed to be able to offer a strings program for our students in conjunction with the Barthelmes Institute. Until this year, a benefactor has covered the entire cost of this program. This year we are seeking sponsors to help us continue to provide low-cost music instruction to our students. This program meets twice weekly after school, and provides our students the opportunity to learn a skill that will bring them a lifetime of enjoyment.
Annual Cost: $7,000
Support a Student Fund
This year over 60% of Holy Family Cathedral School students recieved some sort of tuition assistance. If not for this financial assistance, many of our students would not be able to attend our school. Your donation to the "Support a Student Fund" goes directly to the families that need it most. Any family seeking tuition assistance must apply through "Facts - Grant and Aid Assessment" to ensure they qualify. The Holy Family "Support a Student Fund", along with the generous support of Friends of Catholic Education, the Hardesty Foundation, and the St. Francis of Assisi Fund have provided over $100,000 in assistance to deserving students for the upcoming school year!
Our graduates go on to great success at Bishop Kelly High School, Cascia Hall, and Booker T. Washington. A number of our most recent graduates have recieved the prestigious Robinson Brother Award to Cascia Hall. Others were accepted to the prestegious Brother Bernadine Scholars Program at Bishop Kelly High School.
Donating to the "Support a Student Fund" enables future generations of students to be prepared to achieve at Tulsa's top schools. If you wish to donate towards the Holy Family "Support a Student Fund" please contact 918-582-0422 or send an email to email@example.com.

The Mike Petzet Scholarship Fund
This fund is in honor of our beloved 1st Grade teacher Mike Petzet who passed away three years ago. Scholarships are awarded to children who demonstrate the attributes that Mr. Petzet worked to instill in his students. This year four students will be recognized for receiving the Mike Petzet Scholarship at our Annual Spaghetti dinner. Through the first two years of the event the Mike Petzet Scholarship Fund has raised over $13,000 towards providing scholarships for students.
Suggested Donation: Everything Helps
The Holy Family Cathedral School Playground Project
Holy Family is currently raising money to renovate its existing playground to meet the needs of its diverse student body. In addition, Holy Family would like to erect an All-Sports court for use by our physical education classes, and as a recess area for our upper elementary and middle school students. We are 25% of goal currently.
Suggested Donation: $25 - $500
