Caring for the Whole Child
Sometimes, we have to start with the basics – like breakfast. When Romero arrived at school one day, he clearly was out of sorts. His body was tense, fists clenched. He came into the principal’s office, disheartened, and plopped into a chair. Stress was taking a toll on the 4th grader.
Romero hadn’t eaten, so Principal Terese Shimshock got him breakfast. State testing was beginning, and without a meal, Romero wouldn’t do well. Meanwhile, a teacher calmly talked about a shared interest: basketball. They talked while Romero ate. Then, feeling more relaxed, he joined his class and completed the testing.
This is what we mean when we say we care for the whole child. Many of our scholars exhibit emotional trauma from family challenges such as homelessness, addiction and poverty. Because of your gifts, we are able to offer a vigorous, faith-infused education to all who come through our doors, regardless of whether their families can afford tuition.
Thank you for considering how you can continue to bring Romero and all of our scholars hope and faith.
