Highland Middle School students have voted to raise $1500.00 or more for a school in the Dominican Republic. Our school decided to follow the Because I said I would.......theme and make our promise to help others in another country. We are proud to be making a difference in the lives of others through a service learning project. We will be doing a variety of activities to raise money for this project. We have started by collecting rainwater in gallon-size jugs to be used in our H2O water Walk. We had our kick-off and sold popsicles to our students which brought in our first money. We will be having competitions through-out the year to raise money. Our staff and students will be purchasing the H2O t-shirts in the near future. We are doing this....because we said we would!
Our group believes that water is an important resource for life and the building block of human existence. To us everyone needs potable water. This is a resource that does not need to be fought over. Hygiene is also an important issue as not washing leads to general disease an unhealthiness. I believe our fund raising endeavors can contribute to project.
The VIBE and IMAGINE Programs are district-wide initiatives designed to meet the needs of the African American students in the school district. The purpose of the program is to create enthusiasm for academic achievement, to encourage good citizenship, to stimulate a desire to serve others, to promote leadership and develop character. The program at McKinley is a partnership program with Abington Junior High School for African American students of grades 4-6. The sponsors of the program will serve as mentors to McKinley students, in efforts to provide a smooth transition from elementary school to junior high school. The participants in this program will meet after school twice a month. Discussion groups and session will focus on various topics, such as…character and leadership development, citizenship, and cultural awareness through the use of literature, student projects and field trips.
We have wonderful students in our school who will go above and beyond what is necessary to raise money.
Every day, one billion people make a three-hour journey to gather water! There is a water crisis throughout the world that is creating economic, social, educational, and life-threatening conditions. There is an urgent need for clean water and sanitation in schools and communities around the world. Children, especially those under the age of five, are most susceptible to the ultimate horrors of water-borne diseases. Access to clean water and adequate sanitation substantially decreases the mortality rates among children.
Mission 5&2 offers youth sports programs year round that also aims to spread the message of kindness for EVERYONE without judgement. Our 2021 Multi-Sport & Service Summer Camp will teach the kids that acts of service to others can be of all sizes and reach. Each day of the week we will learn how we can serve at home (M), our community (TU), our region (W), our nation (TR), and the world (F). On Friday the kids will complete a Walk for Water to raise funds for Los Pozas!

"We at Sacred Heart School live and work to nurture each child through a Christ-filled environment by preparing all to value the quality of life. We strive for religious and academic excellence while we enhance the success of each child both now and for the future." The words above are the Mission Statement for the Sacred Heart of Jesus School in Hanover, Pennsylvania, in the United States of America. More than just words, these sentences embody the guiding principles of the educational experience at Sacred Heart School. We value the importance of this message beyond just our own classrooms, though. Jesus, Himself, said, “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” (Mt 25:35) True to the Gospel message and our Catholic heritage, we strive to extend our spirit of service to those in need to “enhance the success of each child both now and for the future." Please join us in our efforts and prayerfully consider joining Sacred Heart School in our efforts to assist our brothers and sisters in Christ. May God bless you always!
