The Giving Spirit Panel — Please return Permission Slips by 9/27

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.

Sister Stella Celebration — Sept. 25 (WEAR PINK!)

As MANY of our SPA legacy families know, Sr. Stella Enright served for 48 years as the principal of St. Paul the Apostle School. Throughout her years, she touched the lives and hearts of many students and families. Sr. Stella’s birthday is September 25th—she would have been 90 years old! This year, we will join with the Sr. Stella Foundation to remember her during our morning assembly on Monday, September 25.

All of our students are cordially invited to join us in wearing FREE DRESS on Sept. 25, if at least ONE ITEM of clothing is PINK. (Pink was Sr. Stella’s favorite color!)
