Ave Maria Catholic School Spirit Wear and Jeans Day for Food Drive on Friday, November 14th

All students are asked to help collect items for the food drive by bringing in food OR $5.00 to help with this wonderful effort!

Student Council will be sponsoring the food drive in partnership with “Hands of Hope”.

Hands of Hope is a non-profit that provides the time, talent, and treasure to improve the quality of life for those in need in Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota by supplying labor, materials, and support for building and repairing living facilities, as well as, providing those in need with food, warm clothes, and necessities to improve living conditions.

Students in Preschool through 5th grade will be decorating grocery bags for our food drive to bring home and collect items.

Students will not have school these days, but are required to attend their conference with their parents. Each conference will last approximately 15 minutes.
