ECHO's December Projects

December has been a very busy month for ECHO and the Catholic schools they serve.  Here is a sample of the variety of things the students have been doing with the help and guidance of our ECHO counselors.

 St. Anthony School students finished their Second Step classes on the topic of “empathy.” The kindergarten class created top secret "hearts of love" to surprise their loved ones. Students colored hearts and surprised people they love by sneaking them into pockets, on their desks, under pillows, anywhere they could think of.  The children loved surprising others.  The first and second grade students completed "Empathy Quilts" for their teachers.  Each teacher received a "quilt" to hang in their classroom. 

 At Our Lady of Rosary School the Peacemakers (7th and 8th grade service and leadership group) held a cookie and candy sale to raise funds for their March retreat.  They had a wonderful time making the sweet treats and selling them to all the students at their school. 

 Four warm soft fleece blanks were made by the eighth graders from seven local Catholic schools for a special child who is undergoing medical treatment, and the blankets were donated to Dayton Children’s Hospital.  The edges of these blankets were tied by the students who attended the 8th grade retreat, and they made a special wish for a speedy recovery as they tied each knot.  A special prayer accompanied each blanket.
