Pennies for Patients
This year for Catholic Schools' Week, Holy Name of Jesus School decided to do a service project to help raise money to find a cure for blood cancer. Fourth graders set the stage for the project by visiting all homerooms to teach about the cause, worked with our sixth-grade morning announcement team (HNN, Holy Name News) to create videos, collected and counted the cash each day. After our school Mass, fourth graders presented a “check” for $3,700 to Cassidy Nord of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
In honor of Catholic Schools' Week and the Sock Hop, Sixth Grade Student Council collected socks for people in need. Socks are the number one item needed by homeless shelters. We collected 955 pairs of socks! A team of gentlemen created the container to collect the socks.
Third Grade Valentine Project
Instead of a Valentine's Party, our third grade students decorated snack bags for children in need in our community. We filled 200 bags with Goldfish, mandarin oranges and juice boxes which were delivered to IOCP.
Toys for Tots - Holy Name of Jesus School collected 350 toys and gift cards and presented them on Kare11 news. Alum, Ryan Shaver interviewed Maureen Smith, one of our second grade teachers who had Ryan in years past.
Second Thursday Hospitality
Students from The Edge Program serve breakfast to parishioners after our 6:45 Mass on the Second Thursday of each month during the school year.
2018 Mass of the Holy Spirit
Fourth through sixth graders attended the 2018 Mass of the Holy Spirit. Students in all grades brought in winter apparel and our second graders helped organize the donations. This event is held every other year.
