Queen of Apostles students ‘give back’

December 2012

Each class at Queen of Apostles School demonstrates its community spirit by performing service projects throughout the year. Kindergarten and first grade students make holiday cards and decorations for the Marianist Center in Cupertino.
Second graders provide schools in need with basic classroom supplies as well as provide Easter decorations to Dolores Mission in Los Angeles. This month the school is organizing a novena during which specific items will be brought each day.
Third graders participate in the Loaves and Fishes program by making 150 lunches once a month. Fourth and sixth graders work at Sacred Heart Community Service once a month, sorting clothes and food to be donated to people in need.
Fifth graders assist adult members of the Morgan Autism Center in San Jose, and seventh graders provide warmth to InnVision patrons by coordinating a school-wide coat, jacket and sweater drive.
Eighth graders provide example to younger grades by performing a variety of service projects throughout the year including helping in extended care at the school, working in animal shelters, and visiting residents of convalescent facilities.
They also coordinate the Survival Sack project which provides filled backpacks distributed by Sacred Heart Community Service. Eighth graders each complete a total of 12 service hours a year. After each trimester, students write a reflection of their experiences.
