This month the students of St. Hugh Catholic School will focus on learning the importance of respect.
Respect means treating others as you want to be treated. Respect is recognizing and responding to the God-given dignity of each person.
Jesus taught us something we call the “Golden Rule”. He said to treat others the way you want to be treated. We all want to be shown kindness and consideration. Our Catholic faith teaches us that we are made in the image and likeness of God. During this month, make it a point to treat others with the kind and respect that Jesus showed everyone he met.
Around the World Day
St. Hugh School kicked off Hispanic Heritage Month with a special “Around the World” assembly. Each class voted for a country they wanted to represent. The students spent several weeks researching and learning about the history of their selected country, its culture and its traditions. On September 30th, everyone came together to hear what the each class had learned. Some classes recited poems, others sang songs, some danced and one even said a few words in Italian. Overall it was a wonderful and educational event.
Pencil & Paper Drive
The Barnyard Community Center, located in West Grove, is in need of lined paper and pencils for their after school tutoring services. The Barnyard provides free after school care for children with financial and domestic hardships that often go home to an empty house.
Caring volunteers working with students, have the power to help kids boost academic achievement and put young people on track for a brighter future. St. Hugh School wants to help empower these students by providing them with the necessary tools; paper and pencils.
If you would like to help with this project, please drop off your donations by Thursday, October 16th.
Sip & Savor Event is a Success
The first annual St. Hugh Sip & Savor event on October 2, 2014 was a stupendous success! The great wine, fabulous food, lively music, and wonderful spirit of support for St. Hugh exceeded everyone's expectations. Twenty-five separate vendors were present with their specialty foods and wines for sampling. Guests had a great time savoring the delicious dishes, enjoying the company of old and new friends, partaking in raffles, and dancing the night away to the sound of the "Son Cubanos" band.
The event brought in approximately 275 guests and raised over $17,000 that will go towards the church and school endowment fund. Thank you to our wonderful sponsors and everyone who helped make this night a tremendous success!
