|Guest Speaker from Wounded Warrior at Saint David's|
Each year our Eighth Grade Student Council leads the student body in a school-wide fundraising project in support of a cause or organization of their choice.
This year, the boys are working to support The Wounded Warrior Project, an organization that offers free programs to our veterans who were wounded during their service.
The project kicked off last week when a guest speaker from Wounded Warrior met with the boys in Grades Three through Eight. The boys were inspired by the veteran's story and his resilience.
That same day our eighth graders held a soccer tournament to raise funds. Today, Student Council officers sold Warrior Project t-shirts, lapel pins, and wrist bands for a voluntary donation in the front lobby.

I am always struck by the zeal with which our boys engage in these projects, and their recognition that in order to "be good" one must "do good."
