To encourage prayer and good works during Lent, initiate Paschal Pals in the classroom. Similar to Kris Kringle, students select the name of someone in the class to pray for during Lent and practice acts of kindness. The names are selected anonymously and kept secret until revealed before Easter, when an Easter basket is given to the recipient.
