Every year, the parents, students and staff of Saint Mary’s School get together for three evening Pep Rallies spread throughout the school year to celebrate community.
The first pep rally took place on October 18, but there was something new this year – a service opportunity. The school introduced Acts of Kindness, a fun way for all ages to participate in a service project while enjoying a night out together as a school community. The Pep Rallies are a wonderful way for families to spend time getting to know each better, share a meal, and now – to give back to the greater community.
The school partnered with the parish to see where there was a need. They quickly discovered they could decorate over 100 brown lunch bags for lunches that are delivered to the ConXión Dayworker Center for men and women who go out looking for jobs. You can learn more about this organization online at http://conxion.org.
The parents and students can’t wait for the next Pep Rally and Community Service Project in January.
