Each year our students in Primary through Middle School participate in a community service project of their choice. Through various lessons in the classroom, students are aware of the importance of implementing these Grace and Courtesy practices in order to make various connections with the outside world. This year the Primary level choose CASA through Passaic County. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is an organization of people from the court and state which provides resources to less fortunate children. The CASA boxes teach students what it means to be less fortunate and the value of philanthropic ideas. The Primary level classes made gift tags and decorative boxes from which families can purchase items for the child. All unwrapped items with gift tags were brought into school. It is a great way to promote discussion at the primary level about giving and providing comfort to those less fortunate than ourselves. Primary classes were privileged to have Gina Cetta, the CASA Program Director, come and discuss with the children the benefits and importance of giving during the holiday season. Thank you, Gina!
