FAIRFIELD—Today, Assumption Catholic School in Fairfield hosted a “Tape the Teacher” event, during which the teacher (or Father Cipriani, pastor of Our Lady of the Assumption Church) who raised the most money towards the school fund was taped to the side of the building.
By a huge lead, the winning team was the Blue Team of veteran teacher Ms. Kathy Andrade with nearly $900 raised. At the beginning of the week, Ms. Andrade’s team was in the lead after the generous contributions of her second-grade class. The total funds raised overall currently stands at over $1250!
Leading up to the event, students of Assumption Catholic School and parishioners of Our Lady of Assumption Church had been spreading the word to ensure support.
Students were encouraged to wear the color of their choice of winner and they took the opportunity to show their school spirit, even bringing in colored pom-poms!
This event came out of an idea to not only raise money for the school but to create increased community throughout our Pre-K 3-8th grade and throughout the greater Fairfield County community at large.
“Anything for the school and the kids!” said Father Cipriani.
Principal Santoli stated, “It’s not surprising Ms. Andrade won by a landslide—she would do anything for our kids and hopes to “stick” around for a long time to come. We thank her for her efforts, her team building and all those that supported including a great showing by Father Cipriani and Mrs. Yoney.”
