Well, about the time I am writing this would be about the time I would be at school with my own five kids and would be beginning to plan my day. Which students do I need to meet with, which students should I meet with, what teachers and parents can I reach out to, and in general...how can I help someone today? But instead, I am sitting in a chair at home wondering all these same things and not having an easy way to do any of them. My hope is maybe I can blog daily or every other day with some resources and ideas and still help in some way. And keep the hope and faith alive that soon I will be ..read more

Not sure how many years we have done this (I think at least 15!), but this is one of our favorite ways to give back every year. Our staff and students work to raise enough money to provide Christmas presents and gift cards to 4-6 local families who are in need. Every single penny raised goes towards providing a great holiday for these families. And it is awesome to see how generous our students are each year. We seem to set a fundraising record each year and I am g ..read more

Summer Meals and Pantry Programs!     With summer approaching very soon, our counseling and student support team wants to make sure families in our community know and have a few resources when it comes to food and meals.

One is our School Food Pantry located in our elementary building. The other is the Community Food Pantry located at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Carlisle.
