St. Mary's Students Brave the Rain in Support of Teachers and Aides

On the rainy morning of Friday, October 7th, students at St. Mary Catholic Community School in Crown Point showed their appreciation for their teachers and aides by participating in the school’s Faculty and Staff Appreciation Walk-a-thon. The rain didn’t dampen the spirit. It added an extra level of excitement for the students! The walk-a-thon was started by St. Mary’s Parish Council and Finance Council twelve years ago. The route stretched as far east as Indiana Avenue, to Crown Point’s historic square, and as far south as Greenwood Avenue. The school is grateful for all the support from the parents, and community who made this year’s walk-a-thon a success. For those who are interested in making a donation, the school is accepting them. Donations can be sent to the school office or may be found on the online portal at https://stmarycp.page.link/walkathon .

Adriana Borozan and Evangeline Briseno were not discouraged by the rain. They had a fun time walking in St. Mary’s Faculty and Staff Appreciation Walkathon
