Students Serve on Day of Caring

The classrooms at St. Ursula Academy were empty April 30 as all students and teachers participated in the school’s 9th Day of Caring.Each member of the school community was assigned to one of 31 local agencies for the day to do service work. Students put one of the school’s core values—service—into practice by the work they did at food banks, nursing homes, senior centers, schools, and local gardens. In an assembly held before the students left for their day-long service projects, Christina White from Service Leadership Toledo presented a Jefferson Award Silver Banner to the school for their service work in 2013. Individual students Mattison Gibson, Connie Baum- gartner, and Sydney Czerniakowski received special recognition for their service hours.
