NOCHE DE GRACIAS
(Night of Thanks) is an annual fundraising event supporting Cassata Catholic High School. This event has been graciously hosted by Jody and Lanny Lancarte at Joe T. Garcia's Restaurant for more than 20 years.
As Cassata's only fundraising event each year, Noche de Gracias raises approximately 10% of its annual budget from this event. Proceeds provide critical funds to supplement tuition for students in need, improve academic programs, and provide much-needed technology and curriculum updates.
The 2019 Noche de Gracias was held on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 at 6:00 pm.
Thank you to our co-chairs for the event, Margaret and David Taylor, and Trina and Fred Pecina
and our committee members: Ann Corley, Melody Derrig, Abel Gonzalez, and Dan Villegas.
Thank you to our Emcee, Andy Taft, President Downtown Fort Worth, Inc.,
Your Support Advances our Mission
Cassata's mission is to enable students of all backgrounds to raise their education level, complete their secondary education, and become healthy, independent, and productive citizens.
Your tax deductible gift to Noche de Gracias will directly support Cassata Catholic High School's unique and effective academic model which includes:
morning and afternoon sessions to accommodate many student circumstances including those caring for children or elderly parents, working to support family, or suffering from chronic health problems.
small class sizes (12-15 students) for crucial one-on-one instruction, individualized, self-paced curriculum guided by caring, highly qualified teachers.
remedial English/math testing and classes to ensure that all students have the proper foundation for high school learning.
open entry/exit policy that allows students who have dropped out or are struggling in another school to re-start at Cassata during any point of the school year. Cassata also accepts students who have exceeded the maximum age for public school.
Cassata Connections, a successful mentoring and career development program that utilizes community resources and volunteers;
dual enrollment courses at Tarrant County College and required Texas Success Initiative testing to prepare students for post-secondary education and careers.
