As part of St. Mary's School community outreach, the students have committed themselves to making a difference to others. This initiative is called "Think About Others Thursdays". The 4th grade threw down the gauntlet challenging all other homeroom classes to a "Can War". Our first goal is to share our many blessings with others in the community. Our 2nd goal is to "bury" Miss. J's desk! We are currently collecting non-perishable food items to donate to the food bank sponsored by Together Inc. Students are not restricted to bringing food on Thursday, every day is a collection day! We take photos on Thursday and send them to the teachers to share with their classes and report our progress on Thursday. So far, 4th grade is ahead in the "Can War". Stay tuned for updates and pictures of the teachers desks being buried under cans and boxes. Even the Office and Support Staff are getting involved. If you want to take part, you can drop off a donation of cans or other non-perishable food items at the Clay Street door of St. Mary's School after Thanksgiving break.You are welcome to designate a classroom you'd like to take care of your donation. We will be collecting donations until Christmas. Thanks for making a difference in the lives of others.
