Approximately 375 Kuemper Catholic High School students comprising 64 groups raked lawns, washed windows, moved furniture, cleaned garages and did more on Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 5, as a way of thanking the community for its support of the Kuemper system.
Kuemper’s annual Service Day saw the students complete 106 jobs in Carroll, Arcadia, Breda, Halbur and Templeton. Students and chaperones in the teams worked at homes, apartment complexes and churches. The school invited people in the community to call in and request work by a Service Day crew.
Student Council members spread the word about Service Day and gathered the information about the work requested.
Service Day originally was scheduled Wednesday, Oct. 30, but because of bad weather was postponed to Nov. 5, requiring Student Council members to contact people at the work sites about the new schedule.
Science teacher Nicole Martin, who is Student Council moderator and Service Day coordinator, said, “I was very proud of my Student Council for stepping up and helping me in any way that they could. It made a busy day turn into a wonderful day to see the hard work pay off and to be able to help the people in our community.”
