When October arrives, Rosarian Academy students are elated to get ready for Halloween. However, the students also recognize that not all children have the opportunity to celebrate fun holidays like Halloween. To help, students provided Halloween cheer for children at the Lord’s Place and Palm Beach Children’s Hospital.
On Oct. 28, 35 middle school students participated in the fourth annual Pumpkin Carving Party at the Lord’s Place Family Campus. Rosarian students paired up with children to carve pumpkins, paint faces, make Halloween crafts and share stories.
The Rosarian National Junior Honor Society organized the event and is in the process of planning a Christmas party for children at the Lord’s Place. The Lord’s Place provides shelter for homeless men, women and children, and help residents identify the issues that led to their homelessness.
This year, some Rosarian students also spread spooktacular fun to the children at Palm Beach Children’s Hospital. Each second-grade student decorated two Halloween bags and filled them with items such as puzzles and coloring books. Through the Alliance for Kids, the bags were distributed to the children staying at the hospital.
