We’ve had many recent projects this year. We concluded our Harvest of Hope Food Drive with Campus Ministry and our Christmas Phone Cards for Troops Drive on November 17,2017. Both drives yielded great results, including 38 BIG boxes of food and a total of 191 phone cards sold! All of the food was donated to ST. LUCY’S food pantry in Jersey City as well as IN JESUS’S NAME food pantry here in Hoboken. The phone cards will be sent to brave soldiers fighting in Afghanistan. We also held our annual Thanksgiving Dance in November for grades 5 through 8. With a record-breaking attendance of 80 students, the dance was a fun-filled event. Thanks to Mr. Petagno for organizing this event, and thanks as well to the Food and Beverage serving staff of Miss Molino and Miss Girovasi, assisted by Mr. McGrath! A hat tip to D.J. Zoe D. (Grade 8) for keeping us dancing all night with her tunes.
As you can tell, our Student Council has had a busy start, and we simply can’t wait to continue. With projects during Catholic Schools Week, as well as the school’s first Talent Show on April 20th, we know that this year is going to be fantastic! We would like to thank all of the student body, parents, and faculty for their help throughout the year!
And remember - ALWAYS BE YOUR BEST, AND LET GOD DO THE REST!!!!!!!!!
