On Monday of Catholic Schools Week, students at SMSH from grades K-8 devoted the day to community service. For $1 each student could wear red, white, and blue for the day rather than their school uniforms. The student council collected over $370 from this fundraiser that has been designated to go to Catholic Relief Services in order to help the victims of the hurricane in Haiti.
In addition, each class carried out a special service project.
