Christian Service Day

– the Alpha and Omega of SCCS servant leadership

From the moment children enter St. Charles Catholic School, they can feel the difference. People are welcoming, helpful, caring, kind-hearted and open to others. This environment was established by the Oblates from the very beginning, and today we are thankful that this charism still permeates the very foundation of our school community.

Building a loving community is work, and at SCCS that work never ends. We pray every morning for those in our community, and we offer our hands to help those in need. Christian Service Day is more than just a symbol of giving of self, it is an expression of our commitment to truly “make a difference” in the world, one set of hands at a time. Now in its 5th year, the students and staff of SCCS look forward to spreading joy out to the greater community.

Each year, the students in Grades 6-8 gather on the first day of school with all of their teachers. Thank you, to Mrs. Narynski,  our Vice-Principal, for leading the event which included discussing the proper use of technology, especially iPads, the leadership role that Middle Years’ students have in the school community and reminders about the importance of always doing your best work.
