The Spring Flower Sale is a St. Patrick’s Home & School Association (PTO) fundraiser.

The Spring Flower Sale is the Home & School Association’s largest fundraiser of the year and typically raises $8,000-$9,000 annually. Support of this fundraiser helps fund such things as educational field trips, assemblies (i.e. COSI on Wheels), technology (iPads for middle school students), the library program, and upgrades to security.
