Lower School Shows Heart and Sole in 5K Race against Hunger Effort

SCH’s culture of generosity and kindness has been on display a lot this month, and we could not be prouder of the latest example of creativity and caring as Lower School students and teachers embraced the challenge of running/walking for their Community Service/CEL Project to alleviate hunger in our community. Inspired by the Philadelphia Hunger Coalition’s 25th Annual 5K Race Against Hunger, 286 boys and girls in Pre-K through 4th grade ran and walked 1K five times to raise funds for longtime SCH service partners, the Germantown Avenue Crisis Ministry and St. Vincent’s Food Cupboard. Our students showed great initiative developing pitches for sponsorship, writing letters, and creating posters to raise awareness. At home, in addition to seeking sponsor support from families, they donated chores and even contributed some savings to support the effort. We could not be prouder of how they supported one another across grades, and even divisions, to raise the astounding sum of $16,412.05 for our partners! Way to go Lower School!
