Students at St. Joseph’s Catholic School, under leadership of Principal Greg Kirkham, have begun making Christmas gifts for children in Mexico. Students received donations form both the Church and school community members, which include Christmas wrapping paper, toilet paper rolls, candy and yarn. The crackers are tubes filled with candy and then wrapped in Christmas wrap and tied on the ends with the yarn. Younger students buddy with their faith partners in older grades and come together to assemble the Crackers. With pride, all students have grown in their understanding about children who are less fortunate and may not receive gifts at Christmas. This effort identifies the mission of St. Joseph’s to develop academically excellent students as well as compassionate and giving young people.
