St. Bernard Knows the Importance of Community

St. Bernard School in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana is constantly searching for new ways to bring together family, friends, and faith. For years the school has participated in the Community Cash for Schools® program, but this year the school was thrilled to find that out of over 800 schools, they were one of our top earners. St. Bernard is excited to use the funds to thank students and parents for all the hard work they do.

While many participants in our Community Cash for Schools® program use their earned funds to purchase books or tangible materials, the staff at St. Bernard decided to do something a little different.

Community keeps the town of Breaux Bridge alive, and they are always looking for new opportunities to bring everyone together. St. Bernard School decided to use their earnings to host several events with a community focus. Tangible items will eventually need replacement, but the memories of these events will never fade for members of the Breaux Bridge community.

St. Bernard School first hosted a Father Daughter Dance. The evening was full of dancing and good times to be had by all attendees. Next came the Mother Son Bowling event called Blessings and Bowling. These two events help to foster closer family relations.

The final event the school chose to host had a spooky Halloween theme. The event was called Boo Bash. The Boo Bash gave children and their families from all over the community the opportunity to congregate at the school and trick-or-treat together. This event allowed children to show off their Halloween costumes while still being in a safe, family-friendly environment.

Although the ways to spend their earnings are nearly endless, St. Bernard chose to help students and members of the surrounding community make lasting memories.
