The St. Andrew’s chapter of National Junior Honor Society wants to thank all those who baked and made purchases at their recent bake sale! They raised over $150 for GiGi’s Playhouse, a center for students with Down Syndrome. This is a center that is developing a a location in Buffalo and provides educational, life and social skills for these students. They had a fundraiser on October 13th at Mason’s Mission in Pendelton Park. Mrs. Cacicia and Ms. Stainsby delivered the check from the bake sale at the park and the organizers were beyond grateful! This area of the park is specially made for children with special needs and more will be added in the near future. Check out the pictures from the park and thank you again for supporting GiGi’s Playhouse. Friend them on Facebook and check out the shout out they gave St. Andrew’s on their page!
The National Junior Honor Society was founded in 1929 in the hopes of creating an organization that would recognize and encourage academic achievement while also developing other characteristics essential to citizens in a democracy. The ideals of character, scholarship, leadership, service, and citizenship remain as relevant today as they were in 1929. Through the NJHS chapter service activities and academic standards, members maintain and extend the qualities that won them selection.
