Chloe Genova & Cade Ortiz – Seventh Grade Philanthropists

Two cousins in 7th grade (born 3 days apart) turning “13”…this was a big one!

“For our Birthday Party we knew we wanted to invite the entire class to help us celebrate. We also agreed that it was selfish to ask each person in our class to bring us a gift.  Did we really need more “stuff?”  Instead, we asked that if the students wanted to bring us a gift to please make a donation to the 7th grade class of SSJ.

All the parents and students were very generous, and in total we collected $1000. We hope this money can help some of our fellow students/friends to attend field trips, or that the money can be used on whatever our teachers feel is most needed in the 7th grade this year!”
