Our Sports Club is trying to raise money for the upcoming sports seasons. If you would like to donate, click on the link on the Sports Club post.
All Saints Catholic School is located on South 10th Street in the Little Italy Neighborhood close to the heart of downtown Omaha, Nebraska. We are one of the mo...st diverse inner city Catholic schools in the city. Our school has a rich history of serving a unique population of students. In the early days, our school served many Italian immigrant students. Over the years, the school has had several name changes; from St. Philomena to St. Frances Cabrini, to Catholic Southeast to our current name, All Saints. For the last 16 years, our school has been home to a large population of Sudanese refugee students. Currently, 43% of our families are Sudanese and 30% are Latino. Our diversity is what makes our school so unique and special. It is our hope that we can continue to serve these students and their families for years to come. Approximately 85% of our students come from low income households and 70% speak another language at home. We offer smaller class sizes to accommodate our students' needs so we are better able to prepare them for high school where our graduation rate is 98%. It is up to us to show our children how to become productive citizens. We are very grateful to all of our donors and supporters who help us carry out this very special mission of providing a quality, faith based education to our diverse student population.
The Sports Club operates apart from the school, therefore we are a self funded organization. Our sports program is different from other schools as we currently provide volleyball, basketball and archery to our students at little to no cost to our families. Due to the dynamics of our student body, this is crucial to ensure students have every opportunity to participate in athletics.
Athletes from All Saints have gone on to high school sports and even gone on to star in major colleges across the country. One of our proud alum is currently an award-winning volleyball coach for a local Catholic High School.
With the funds that we are requesting, we will purchase new uniforms for our sports, new sports equipment, pay all of our league fees and referee fees.
Our new school year has begun and games begin soon. Any funds received will immediately go to pay for our league and referee fees.
