OCTOBER SANDWICH BUILDERS

During these uncertain and challenging times, we believe that it is important to continue to support and give back to a community much in need. It is because of this, that we have decided to continue to organize Sandwich Builders for 2021-22 school year. We have had to adjust the traditional program for the well being of all involved. Please see the detailed changes and donate generously to this important program. For the modified SB during COVID restrictions, our goal is to make approximately 750 lunches that will be primarily donated to the Union Rescue Mission downtown LA.

Although supplies will be solicited for a specific grade each month, all school and parish families are encouraged to donate and/or participate.

  • Sandwiches will be made at home on Friday, October 8th.
  • There are 20 sign-up spots available and each spot is responsible for making 30 sandwiches.
  • We will provide gloves and foil sheets to wrap the sandwiches, which can be picked up at the church office during the week prior to Sandwich Builders.

Per 30 sandwiches you will need approximately:

  • 3 loaves of bread
  • 1 32oz. jar of jam/jelly
  • 2 32oz. jars of peanut butter.

Families that sign up to make sandwiches are responsible for getting the supplies for the sandwiches.

Feel free to sign up for more than one sandwich making spot and get together with another family for a socially-distanced sandwich making party!

We ask that the sandwiches be made on Friday afternoon/evening, refrigerated over night, and delivered to the JCPC at 7:30 am Saturday morning, October 9th. Lunches will be assembled and delivered to the Union Rescue Mission Saturday morning.

Lunches will be assembled Saturday morning, October 9th at 7:30am with a limited number of volunteers, 10 adults and 10 children.

Mask must be worn when we meet in the JCPC for assembly on Saturday morning. Social distancing protocols will be observed at all times. Temperature checks will be done at the door, and everyone will need to sign in.

Since we are only allowed to have a limited number of people inside the JCPC, we are asking families to sign up in pairs, one child and one adult to attend the assembly of the lunches on Saturday morning. Please leave them in the church office during the week of October 6th.

Supplies can be sent or delivered to the church office any time leading up to the SB date just as in the past.

We are accepting financial donations toward supplies. Donations can be made directly to the parish office or through Push Pay at pushpay.com/g/spapostle. Please note funds to Sandwich Builders.

Debate Club 2021-2022

Ms. Alessi will offer Debate Club on Tuesdays after school to students in grades 6-8.

  • Ms. Alessi first introduced the program to Saint Paul students in 2005. The club operates under the auspices of the Middle School Public Debate Program, a program developed and initiated by Professor John Meany and Kate Shuster of Claremont McKenna College. The Public Debate Program currently runs in 38 countries and includes more than 800,000 students.
  • The program “empowers students to develop and practice excellence in critical thinking and oral communication. It educates students to understand and debate, discuss, and deliberate current and historical public policy and educational controversies.” Debate provides students with an opportunity to develop skills in “public speaking, argumentation, critical listening, note taking, issue analysis, and evidence evaluation.”
  •  Meetings will take place every Tuesday, starting October 5th, after school until 5:00p in room 8A.
