Hang on to your hats
St. Catherine of Siena School's first community service project of the school year is on. More than 12,600 children are diagnosed with cancer each year and treatment for cancer makes it hard for kids to be kids. On Sept. 25, "Hats on Day," at the Martinez school raised $200 to benefit the Foundation For Children With Cancer. St. Catherines' has supported this event for the past six years, raising more than $3,000. Pupils have expressed that Hats on Day gives them the chance to learn more about childhood cancer, and helps them relate to children who have lost their hair as a result of treatment. St. Catherine's considers community service an integral part of its mission and an important opportunity to promote our student's empathy and eagerness to serve others.
