We try to show our students how to “love thy neighbor.” We also get involved, with our students, in the community beyond the school.
Each grade is responsible for outreach events and drives, such as collecting necessities for the troops or school supplies for less fortunate students. In addition, every grade has a thematic area of responsibility around which a class activity is planned. For example, Kindergarten’s mission is “Protect the Planet” and in previous years, students cleaned local beaches or state parks. First grade focuses on “Caring for Kids” and second grade embraces “Vocation Appreciation.” Third grade puts its emphasis on “Embracing Wisdom,” fourth grade on “Love Thy Neighbor” and fifth grade acts as “Helpers for our Heroes.”
Junior High students are required to earn Christian Service hours and can do so through a variety of charity drives and parish events. Significantly, Junior High students (with the assistance of their parents) prepare and serve home-cooked meals every other month to the local homeless population.
