Capital Campaign

Pride In Our Past…Faith In Our Future Capital Campaign: $3.1M+ Raised for School Improvements, Teacher Salaries

Throughout the last three years, you have helped us raise over $3.1 million in the Pride In Our Past…Faith In Our Future Capital Campaign. With a laser focus on increasing teacher salaries, renovating our existing school buildings, and restructuring to enable growth and efficiencies, we’re happy to announce that we’ve made much progress on each of these goals.

While many of the building projects have been completed over the last couple of years, there’s still much work happening in some of our schools this summer.

  • Painting & installation of new ceilings in the gyms at both Pacelli Catholic Middle School & Pacelli Catholic Elementary School-St. Stephen
  • Remodeling four bathrooms at Pacelli Catholic Elementary School-St. Stephen
  • New lockers & locker room updates at Pacelli Catholic Middle School
  • Classroom painting at Pacelli Catholic Middle School
  • Window replacement at Pacelli Catholic Elementary School-St. Stephen

Once again this year, we have continued to dramatically increase teacher salaries and are among the top in the Diocese of La Crosse. We are also seeing growth in our class sizes too with the largest incoming kindergarten class we’ve seen in 12 years – so big that we’ve even hired an additional kindergarten teacher so we can continue to keep our class sizes small and focus on the educational success of each and every child in our classrooms.

To thank you for your generosity, plans are currently underway to install a donor recognition wall honoring those who have gone far above and beyond the call of duty. This display, to be installed permanently at Pacelli High School, will honor those donors who have selflessly made a gift of $5,000+ to the Pride In Our Past…Faith In Our Future Capital Campaign. Additionally, all donors have been recognized in the Cardinal Crest publication and here on this page. There are no words to fully express our eternal gratitude. This campaign will affect the lives of many people for years and years to come. THANK YOU!
