St. Joseph Grad Service Project week for Family Services of Central Alberta

Published

From Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools

 It’s Grad Service project week for Grade 12 students at St. Joseph High School. This year, students have chosen to support Family Services of Central Alberta through their Grad Service project, because of what the organization stands for, specifically with youth anxiety and seniors with dementia.

“We are so excited to be raising awareness and support for Family Services of Central Alberta as their organization coincided with not only the issues-of-interest our students identified and also aligned with our school’s faith journey. Helping those most vulnerable in our community (the young and elderly) is something our students are very passionate about,” said Grad Service Project Coordinator, Ashley Visscher at St. Joseph High School.
During this week, students are participating in activities that raise awareness and support for Family Services of Central Alberta, which includes:
  • Monday, April 29 – Grad Fundraising Kick-Off Barbeque, where students can purchase a hot dog and pop for lunch.
  • Tuesday, April 30 – Restaurant Takeover at State and Main with local celebrity servers and a silent auction.
  • Wednesday, May 1 – Dessert Day, where students can purchase ice cream sundaes.
  • Thursday, May 2 – Movie Day, where all students can pay to watch Spiderman in the gymnasium.
  • Friday, May 3 – Paint Day, where Father Henri Voisin School students partner with high school students to learn about regulating emotions through artwork.
St. Joseph High School serves over 690 Grade 10 to 12 students in Red Deer. As a learning institution, the St. Joseph High School is committed to serving students with a complete offering of learning opportunities delivered within the context of Catholic teachings.

No idea what I’m supposed to write here, let’s just describe where I am, I guess. There’s a lot of water in this room. Quite a few windows, too. Only one coffee stirring stick thingy though. Oh, look. The door says “Employees only.”

Whoops. That race car picture is crooked. Is it supposed to be? I don’t know. Wonder where that unplugged cord goes. There are nails up on that wall… Wonder what used to go there. Alright, enough nitpicking. Time to find some picture or other to stick in here. There. Found me on Google maps. I’m right in that corner office there. They really should get rid of those Weight Loss Clinic signs… I guess that isn’t really their first priority. Looks like enough. Let’s post it.
