Hunger is Not a Game

Middle school students are collecting food supplies to help build the pantry at ‘The Catholic Center of Concern’. Our classroom has chosen to donate CANNED FRUIT’. To promote a culture of daily giving we are asking everyone to participate in donating.

Please send the FRUIT CANS beginning Tuesday, November 6th and ending Friday, November 16th.

In addition on November 16th, the school is collecting fresh fruit or vegetables to be delivered that afternoon to the center. Each child can bring a bag of apples or oranges.

Upcoming Events

October 14th: Fall Festival

The JBMA Fall Festival is coming up on Sunday, October 14th from 1:30 until 4:30 on our campus. Admission is ‘FREE’ if you bring a pair or as many of new or gently worn shoes for Soles4Souls.  There will be tons of fun for the whole family. For more information or to volunteer, please contact[email protected]

Also an hour before the festival, we will meet in the preschool parking lot to work on our fall garden. Fall garden plants like kale, lettuces, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach; turnips can be brought in over the next few days. We also will need several bags of potting soil. Remember like last year, children will be working and getting dirty!
