5th-8th Grade Community Service Projects
The 5th-8th graders at Holy Ghost are dedicated to serving their community. They will do this through a number of community service projects over the course of the year.
Angel Tree Christmas Families
During the Christmas season, Holy Ghost Church and School adopted three families from the salvation army. School and church families pitched in to buy gifts for the adopted families, and the school held a food and cleaning supply drive. Before Christmas break, the 5th through 8th graders delivered all of the gifts to the families. They also sang some Christmas carols in order to spread some holiday cheer. The families were all very appreciative for their gifts!
Kids Against Hunger: Make a Difference Day
For Make a Difference Day 2014, the 5th through 8th graders participated in a Kids Against Hunger event held at Holy Ghost. During this time, they packaged over 10,000 meals for the needy. They had to measure the different meal components, put them into the bags, weigh and seal the bags, and finally pack the bags to be shipped to other countries and even some local food banks. Each bag of food could feed 6 people. At the end of the event, the students were able to taste the meals.
They spent the day making a difference!
Holy Ghost Harvest Dinner Decorations
The 5th through 8th graders made pumpkin decorations for the Harvest Dinner at Holy Ghost in October. They also created the centerpieces that decorated the tables in art class.
