Generous students reach out to others
April 18, 2019
From a seventh-grader making and selling bracelets to help buy new cafeteria tables to students building relationships with parishioners at daily Mass, students at St. James/Seton School in Omaha are reaching out to others.
Angelo Badami earned volunteer hours toward his confirmation this school year by making and selling paracord (woven nylon cord) bracelets for $5 each, and donating $320 in proceeds to the school.
“It’s neat when kids step outside the box to give back to the school,” said Tiffany Howard, assistant principal.
And 12 seventh- and eighth-grade members of the Student Senate invited about 15 people who attend daily Mass at St. James Church to the parish center April 26 for refreshments and conversation.
“We have great parishioners who are very supportive of the school, and great students who are doing amazing things, so bringing the two groups together can only make that connection even better,” said William Kelly, principal.
