Love and hope is what our Holy Family School students have displayed during their first full month of school.
We are so proud of our students for taking the month of September to remind us of the importance of helping others. In such a short period of time our students raised money for the Hurricane Relief efforts and Pediatric Cancer.
Once we heard of the disasters occurring on the other side of the country, our students decided to take action. Our efforts to raise money began at our Back to School BBQ and carried through each of our classrooms. Our first graders collected over $100 and together as a school we collected over $500 for the Hurricane Relief efforts.
Thinking of others did not stop there, Holy Family School spent one week focusing on National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Gold is the color that represents Childhood Cancer Awareness. Holy Family Student Council, led by Shelly Caron, organized a “Go For The Gold” fundraiser to raise awareness and money for Childhood Cancer Research. Students purchased free dress for $5 and wore “Gold” in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness. The entire student body and staff were given yellow ribbons made by the student council to wear.
Together the school raised over $700, which will be donated to Los Angeles Children’s Hospital. Knowing that the funds raised will be going to a hospital to help find treatments and cures is something that our students are proud to be a part of.
Sometimes with the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we forget how blessed we are in our own lives. Our Holy Family School students are humbled with the awareness of people affected by the hurricane and children who are affected by cancer. We continue this academic year with more love and hope for everyone that is in need.
