Spiritual Emphasis Week is a special time here at Calvary Day School. This is where our Upper School students will attend a week-long series of chapels that enables them to draw closer in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Throughout the week of January 28 - February 1, our students will hear and see how we BELONG to different groups, paths, and communities within our daily lives. Faith, Academics, and Excellence are at the heart of Calvary, but above all, we want to teach our children to be the “hands and feet of Christ” in our school, community, and world.
During Spiritual Emphasis Week, we are excited to partner with a local 501 c-3 nonprofit called P.A.C.K. (People of Action Caring For Kids). Among other projects, P.A.C.K. currently packs and distributes more than 6,000 bags of weekend food to kids in local schools and community programs each month. In our area, 1 in 4 children suffer from food insecurity. Calvary would like to host a packing event of our own on Thursday, January 31st. Our goal is to pack 2,500 snack bags during the week. If each student bought $8.00 worth of food items, this would allow Calvary to reach our goal. Students will be involved in every step of the process (gathering food, packing bags, making cards, and praying a special blessing over the bags).
Please join us in this special project by sending in the food items listed below by January 31st for our packing event. If possible, please allow your students to help with the shopping:
Single serve juice boxes - 6th, 7th, and 8th grade
Fruit Snacks - 9th grade
Single serve packs of Crackers/Cookies - 10th grade
Granola Bars - 11th grade
Pop-Tarts - 12th grade
