On Sept. 28, St. Paul the Apostle School will be hosting a panel from The Giving Spirit, a volunteer organization dedicated to the L.A. homeless population. St. Paul the Apostle hosted The Giving Spirit this past May with the assembling of kits for unhoused mothers, which served hundreds of lives.
The panel will present to 5 – 8th grade students in the gym in the morning. The goal of this learning experience is to introduce students to the Companion Animal Program, an outreach program that can help students nurture empathy, perspective-taking, and heighten awareness of civic engagement and compassionate careers. Students will be introduced to the work of The Giving Spirit in their Religion classes in the days leading up to this event.
Two very important forms have been sent home with students in grades 5 – 8 regarding this event. Please make sure both the Media and Liability Release, and the Permission Form are signed and sent back to your child’s homeroom teacher no later than Wednesday, Sept. 27th, to ensure that your child can attend this event.
