The Student Council would like help in supporting our collection for the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island. The Ronald McDonald House of Long Island gives comfort and shelter to families experiencing the pain of having a sick child in local hospital facilities. A “home away from home”, the House provides the parents and siblings of these children with a temporary haven in a secure and comfortable environment among other families sharing a similar burden.

Saturday, January 10th, Maria Regina School hosted a Paint Nite fundraiser. The resulting paintings came out beautifully! Click here to see pictures of this fun night.
The eighth grade students are studying The Works of Mercy. The Works of Mercy challenge us to provide the "basics" that people need to live. The students, under the direction of Mrs. Haase, chose to support Heifer International. The organization provides "livestock, training, and critical opportunities to families." The students chose to provide a family in need with an alpaca to have high-quality wool for warmth in cold weather. A flock of chicks was also donated by Mrs. Haase. The chicks will grow and give eggs daily for the family income. This income can be used for the family's education and basic necessities.
