The Development Office at St. Isidore School was establshed in 2013 as a way to coordinate and channel all of the various development/advancement activities that the school has been involved in in various ways and through various committees through one centralized office.
The new office will also initiate many more alumni relations activities, as well as accelerate pr, marketing, student recruitment and fund raising initiatives.
Success of any development/advancement efforts will continue to rely on the generous and invaluable contributions of time, talent and energy of the many, many parents, friends and alumni who spearhead and/or work on the many event committees which are detailed on the scroll down menu.
Mr. Mike Yerly heads up the new development office at St. Isidore School.
