Will be held this month. Needed items include twin-size blankets, new or used, single sheets, bath towels, hand towels and wash cloths. This year’s collection will be taken up on January 20 and 27. Please bring donations to the 7100 Euclid parking lot before or after liturgy. There will be two vehicles parked there to receive your donation.
As we did last year, the Community of Saint Peter is partnering with other neighborhood organizations to provide Thanksgiving Baskets for those in need in our area.
We are looking for 50 donations of $25..00 each to purchased items needed for the baskets. Sign up for donations after next week’s liturgy.
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES AT MARION-STERLING SCHOOL BEGIN IN OCTOBER

• Volunteers as teacher’s aide one day (or part of a day) a week
• Tutors in the more structured first and second grade STEP Reading Program: (SupportingTutorsEngagingPupils) New volunteer training will be offered before working with a student. A lesson plan for each lesson is provided.

• Based on the success of the inLclass library that CSP created in one fourth grade classroom at Marion Sterling, the school’s State Improvement Grant Committee ordered $70,000 of books from Scholastic Books for 17 classrooms. The books must be coded to conform with Accelerated Reader, an evidencedLbased program that increased reading comprehension and levels. Coding requires looking up the code on a computer and marking it in the book. Time consuming but not difficult. It would be a great help to the classroom teachers if volunteers from CSP can code the books so that they can be used as quickly as possible.
• IF YOU CAN HELP, PLEASE CALL BARBARA GRANTS AT 216R905R2607.
