At Hope Academy, third graders don’t get Valentines. Or a party. Or even a box of candy hearts.
But they do give one of the best parties in town–and love it.
“Each year, our students bring a party to people who don’t often get one,” says Ms. Niederloh, Hope Academy third grade teacher. “We make all sorts of decorations, ride the bus to the House of Charity downtown, and transform the soup kitchen into a beautiful place full of balloons, centerpieces, valentines, and joy.”
May all of our hearts receive – and give – God’s generous love, along with our third graders.
