L.I.F.E. Appeal

 

 

Sunday, September 25, 2016 marks the beginning of the Lifetime Investment in Faith and Education Appeal (L.I.F.E).  This annual campaign depends on the generosity of parishioners to support the current and future needs of Catholic education at St. Petronille School. Our school is fortunate to have had this fund for over 30 years; there is only one other like it in the Diocese.

L.I.F.E. is... Tuition Assistance: Over the last 5 years, approximately $170,000 in tuition assistance has been provided by the LIFE fund.

School Endowment: Contributions are used to assist families in need. Should contributions exceed the need, they are invested in the L.I.F.E. endowment fund, where interest income is used for the support of St. Petronille School.

Volunteer Effort: The LIFE committee directs the appeal and is made up of volunteers - school parents, parishioners, school board members, and parish staff members.

Your Gift: Contributions, whatever the size, are important and greatly appreciated. Your gift helps make Catholic education more available to students and supports the current and future needs of St. Petronille School.

Please help us pass on the gift of a Catholic education for future generations of St. Petronille Parish.

 

 

 

 

6th Grade Garden 

 

 
Our 6 th Grade garden has been achieved through tons of hard work and time. But the first seed was planted during the beginning of school year, when our 6 th Grade class read the book Seedfolks by Paul Fleischman. Seedfolks is a story told through different people’s perspectives about how a garden brought the entire community together. Each character had their own story, culture, or race, but they all came together to plant a garden in an abandoned plot where people enjoyed dumping their trash. Our class was so intrigued by the book that we wrote a sequel too. Most of all, though, it gave us the wonderful idea for our garden. Amazingly, the garden was created just by us 6 th Graders and a lot of support from our parents and other adults in our parish or community. We all had different focus groups and together we were able transform an idea into a full scale operation. We have all worked very hard on this garden and are very anxious to enjoy it. One Sunday, we all got together and constructed the garden. First we put in the wood, the dirt, and finally the plants. It was tiring at some parts, but we finally made it through all the problems like in Seedfolks. Paul Fleischman thought he was writing a fictional book for kids like us to enjoy reading, but, really, he planted the seeds for our very own parish garden.
