We all want to raise generous, service-minded kids who think of others before themselves, but it's not so easy. Let's face it --in between all of the spelling words, homework, sports practices, and music lessons, it can be hard to find time to squeeze in the Corporal Works of Mercy.
But never fear, Wonder Workers is here!
Now in its seventh year, Wonder Workers is an after school group for students JK-8* who are ready to put that super catchy "Go Make a Difference" song into action. We'll meet four evenings during the course of the school year. To start, we will partner with St. Vincent DePaul to sort toiletries for the Walk for the Poor. Other projects throughout the year will include making school supply baskets for the St. Louis Catholic Academy, assembling materials for an Easter party at Marygrove and making sandwiches for St. Vincent DePaul.
Wonder Workers is a hands-on approach to teaching service. We like to say it's more about do than donate. At each Wonder Workers meeting we'll learn about our mission of whom we're trying to help and then get to work. Most sessions will run 6-7pm. We will send out a sign up genius with information and sign up prior to each session.
Dates and Times:
February 24, 2022 - 6:00 - 7:00 PM - St. Vincent de Paul sandwiches
April 5, 2022 - 6:00 - 7:00 PM - Easter eggs/baskets for Marygrove
*Students in grade 3 and below will need to be supervised at each meeting by a parent or designated adult who has completed the Prevent and Protect program from the St. Louis Archdiocese (formerly Protecting God's Children). While fourth grade and up can attend without parent supervision, we'd love to have any willing adult hands on deck to guide our Wonder Workers!
