During the 2014-2015 school year our local families are hosting students from Haiti, China and New York City. Because these families are opening their homes to a young person from another country, they are helping give our international and diversity students an opportunity for an education, and to develop the compassion needed to make the world a better place for the next generation, and the communities they return to.These students have been engaged within the MSJ community, joining sports teams, tutoring fellow students, acting in the theater program, and giving back through local community service projects. MSJ is grateful to the contributory host families, because without them, these experiences would not be possible, and MSJ would miss the opportunity for rich cultural diversity.
MSJ is seeking supportive families to host students. Join our global community and help support the MSJ community! In the Spring 2015 school semester we need three families to host students from China. MSJ families who host will receive either $2,500 off their 2015-2016 school tuition or a $600 a month stipend (which pays any remaining 2014-15 tuition balance, before remittance to host). To find out how to host a student, contact Carrie Savage at (802)-775-0151 or email@example.com, or visit www.msjvermont.org
As we gear up for Project Help I cannot think of a better quote that embodies who we are here at MSJ and how important helping others in need is to our Catholic Faith. I am incredibly proud of these kids. They are truly awesome young men and women. They should all be so proud of themselves not only their participation in this event, but also for their preparation for this event. It takes days to wrap presents, make signs (our gym turns into a grocery store for a few days), create groups to canvas the city, visit radio stations and more. They are all very dedicated to this project’s success. This year, we will be creating baskets for 93 families. ... .Click here for full letter
MESSAGE FROM PFC:
We will also be kicking off the sale of our MSJ discount cards for $10 each that gives you great discounts at area businesses. They are great stocking stuffers, great way to show your appreciation for your letter carriers and other service people, just a great gift for family and friends. It is a gift that keeps on giving throughout the year. Also, we will be adding some new Spirit wear items that would make great gifts as well. Think of adding these items to your Christmas shopping lists!
