Students give back with successful Giving Day


Every year Cathedral Prep and Villa Maria Academy have their annual Giving Day to promote a spirit of giving back among the student body. During this day all students, parents, faculty, and alumni are encouraged to help donate some money to help out the school for future years and events.

Prep and Villa have such a strong brotherhood and sisterhood that leads to many alumni giving back to the school. That’s what Giving Day is really about, “looking out for each other.” When students and alumni donate money it comes back to help in a big way not only for the school but for current and future students. Giving Day has a great impact by helping everyone keep the cost of Prep and Villa low. This day makes Prep and Villa easier to afford.

This year, each grade level also competed against one other on Giving Day to win the Mission Cup and a day off of school on Feb. 3. Whatever class ended up with highest percentage of students that donated would win the cup. To motivate students to donate even more there was a deal put in place that even if your class did not win you could still earn that day off of school by reaching your class’ money goal. The money mark for each class was $5 multiplied by the amount of students in the grade.

Another incentive to donate was that you would be rewarded with a free dress down day. The free dress down was held on Nov. 26 for the students that did donate. Not all grades reached their goal this year. The results were as follows:

1st place: Freshmen $867.03 (81%)
2nd place: Sophomores $786.00 (100%)
3rd place: Seniors $605.78 (64%)
4th place: Juniors $588.50 (70%)

$2,847.31 was the total amount of money raised by the student body.

Freshman Connor Eubank spoke about his class raising the most money by saying, “I am glad my class raised so much money because of the great cause that it was going to.”

Giving Day is a great day to give back and show how much we appreciate the school we go to.
