One of the most distinctive features of our Roman Catholic faith is our Church's rich tradition of social teaching. It is critical to the unique profile of Catholic education that this teaching be explicitly integrated not only into the curriculum but also into the overall life of our school communities.
Our students, staff, parents, trustees, and pastors have traditionally involved themselves in a wide range of social action activities. Whether it is a food or clothing drive, a class discussion about poverty in our world, or participation in a public demonstration, our Catholic schools demonstrate consistent leadership in these areas.
At St. John XXIII Catholic School our social justice committee is made up of staff and students in grades 4 through 8. Our work has included countless hours supporting out ECO club, painting new wooden signs for the residents at Rosewood retirement home, visiting the Humane Society where students played with the cats and dogs and learned about adoption procedures. We have also visited the food Bank where students helped to sort food.
