In just two and a half months of school our country has seen devastating natural disasters. We have had horrific hurricanes in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico. Right in our own backyard we have had the Northern California Wildfires.

We are so proud that our SJES students immediately wanted to know what they could do to help.

In September SJES contacted a school in Pasadena, Texas where the flood of Hurricane Harvey damaged the school. The student council set up a fundraising event: $5.00 Free Dress. The second grade class also had a Goodies for Good sale on behalf of St. Pius V Catholic Schools. In total, the children raised $2911.00!! St. Pius was extremely thankful!

The Northern California fires hit home for many within our SJES community. Even our students felt an impact in their lives with the change in their schedules due to poor air quality.
As a student body that realizes they are the future leaders of our Catholic Community, a supplies drive was organized for the shelters in Northern California. The students gathered supplies like diapers, paper products, food, and water for the Norther California fire victims. The supplies were gathered and delivered to shelters in the devastated fire areas with partnership from the Elks Lodge 1051.
SJES students are living God's word when they help others!
