Students celebrated our great country in a sea of Red, White, and Blue by praying together, reciting the pledge together, and singing our national anthem accompanied by our St. Joan band.
To show their patriotic spirit and to celebrate “Patriotic Day” during Catholic Schools Week, students in Grade 8 spearheaded a collection to help the Women Marine’s Association, MI-2 Motor City Chapter. The students asked the St. Joan of Arc School Community to bring in snack foods, candy, and personal hygiene items, which could be packed up and distributed to deployed military members, veterans, and homeless veterans. They also collected yarn for association volunteers to make scarves and hats for veterans throughout the year.
The three-day collection ended on Wednesday, Patriotic Day, during Catholic Schools Week. While their goal was 500 items, the students amassed over 1,000 items in a very short period of time! This proves that the Red and White Charger nation also bleeds Red, White, and Blue !
Student Council members delivered over 400 placemats to area nursing homes as part of a Catholic Schools Week service project. The entire school, K-8, decorated the mats with encouraging words, delightful pictures, and Bible verses, along with inspirational sayings and beautiful borders. Deliveries were made by Stella Mulrenin and Shannon Kane, pictured here at Shorepointe Village with Stella's great-grandfather and friends. Shannon shared, " I was so filled with joy because everyone was happy to see the placemats. They were thankful that we visited and said that we made their day." Stella said, "Shannon summed up the experience but I knew the residents were surprised to see us when we walked into the dining room. When we left, my day was cheered too! I could tell my Papa Joe was happy we were there."
