“Respect is Our Superpower” has been a powerful theme during the 2017-18 school year at Saint Lucy School. Each trimester has focused on a different tenant, emphasizing respect for your friends, your self, and finally your community. To make a difference for their community, Saint Lucy students spent a day helping others. They walked to support their school in the morning’s annual pirate-themed “Walk-the-Plank-a-Thon,” followed by an afternoon giving service for their local community. Students were engaged in tasks that would benefit members of different groups at school as well as those in the greater City of Campbell.
Students in eighth grade worked together weeding and preparing the Pre-K garden for planting prior to the end of the school year. The young Pre-K students loved seeing the “big kids” working in their play yard. Seventh grade created all the graduation luncheon favors and décor needed to honor the eighth grade graduating class of 2018. The sixth grade class spent the day beautifying and weeding the primary play yard, Kindergarten garden and primary lunch area. Kindergarten through fifth grade students focused on supporting the local residents of the Corinthian House Senior Residence Community by creating a variety of seasonal works of art. Students took great pride in creating these works of art that brighten the days of many citizens. Students in all grades enjoyed their community focused activities, filling them with a greater awareness of the positive impact their actions can have on others in their community, both near and far.
