Pray for our school as we reach the culmination of our AdvancED Review this week. This is the 5 year renewal of our accreditation status declaring that we still meet the rigorous standards of AdvancED and maintain our credentials. It is the culmination of a year and a half of self-study involving surveys, ratings, narratives, countless meetings, data analysis and arti-facts collection. This is a proud moment for SCB; our faculty and all who support us.
Several years ago, we established the St. Charles Borromeo School Endowment Fund. Endowment gifts are to the school what retirement funds are to an individual: they represent set-aside resources for the future. Although in its infancy, our Endowment is growing. God willing, it will be a blessing to the future generations who attend our beloved SCB.
In the year of Mercy, SCB Elementary and CCD have adopted St. Alphonsus School in Denham Springs. 95% of their students, faculty, and staff lost homes and vehicles in the recent floods. Our students are connected to theirs for joint classroom projects. Our parents are also helping with hot lunches and a continuous coffee station for the staff. We are collecting Gift Cards for them to help ease the burden. Most of all, our students are happily doing God’s work by making the Corporal Works of Mercy come alive.
Whatever you do for the least of my brothers, that you do unto Me.
