Maggie Van Camp, Mary Kate Fennelly, Morgan Pavlich, Casey Greufe, Blake Knobbe, and Mary Kate O’Donnell prepare to serve a meal at Café on Vine, a soup kitchen in Davenport. Student Council members prepared and served the meal during Catholic Schools Week in January.

Kindness counts in sixth grade! This spring, the students in sixth grade have been “catching” each other being kind. Each act of kindness was recorded in a Kindness Journal and a heart was placed on the Kindness Counts bulletin board. It was fun to watch the kindness spread!

The class decided to spread even more kindness throughout the community. Students’ first service trip was to go to River Bend Foodbank in Moline, Ill., and sort donated food items. It was hard work, but it felt good to help!

Students’ other big project was to serve four meals at Café On Vine, a soup kitchen in Davenport. The students planned the menu, helped prepare and serve the food, and toured the café neighborhood. Parents drove and chaperoned the kids. It was a great learning experience for all, and helped students share their gifts with others. Thanks to the St. Paul community for supporting the bake sales and bazaar; the proceeds went toward purchasing food for the meals. It feels so good to help others as Jesus has told us to do!
