Build class unity and encourage compassion with this Great Idea from the TCT archives

For an entire month, our “class of the month” is responsible for leading the Pledge of Allegiance, performing a service project for the school, providing “faith fun facts” once a week, telling a weekly joke, selecting the monthly charity project, and submitting student writing to the school newsletter.

This year we added as a special duty sending “get well” cards to parishioners and relatives of parishioners on our prayer list. The response has been decidedly positive.
