St. Augustine’s “Good News”

St. Augustine Catholic School has welcomed many Filipino families into our school community over the years.

St. Augustine Catholic School has welcomed many Filipino families into our school community over the years. As such, many of our students have personal connections to the devastation their country is facing right now. One of our Grade 5 students submitted the following letter to school principal Mr. Baron as a way to help her friends and family in the Philippines.

Dear Mr. Baron,

I’m writing this letter because I’m too shy to ask you in person. I was just wondering if we can have a donation for the Philippines. I think you heard that they have had Typhoon Haiyan/Jolanda. If we can, let’s donate food, medicine, maybe first aid, clothes, but I don’t know if they need money. All I want is to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan/Jolanda.

From a Grade 5 student

St. Augustine grade 4-6 students have organized a bake sale to raise much needed funds for the Philippines. The sale will take place on November 28 during the lunch recess. Donations will be sent to Development & Peace. We would like to invite the community to help us in our efforts by inviting you to attend the bake sale or make a donation through Development & Peace or other organizations supporting the disaster relief.
