To Know, To Love, To Serve God…words that are in our mission statement and woven into our identity and instilled in everyone of our students. During the season of advent we want to make note of our blessings in working on these terrific projects. So far this year we have served our community in the following ways:
Orphanage in Ukraine – each class was assigned a child to purchase small gifts, school supplies and write letters and cards to.
Purple Heart Project – we created ornaments in honor of Veterans who have received a Purple Heart of Valor. The ornaments are sold and the proceeds go to train Service Dogs.
Nursing Home – Penny Wars: Each class had a competition against each other where they collected pennies and change for the elderly. We collected over $350.
Veteren’s Cards Part I: Each student, under the leadership of our ACS Service Club created Veteren’s Day cards.
Veteren’s Cards Part II: we created over 150 Christmas cards for Veterans.
Kindness Rock Project: Each student created two rocks with a kind message – one for our garden and one for the Community.
Christmas Food Drive for needy families in Perth Amboy area.
