Our Lady of the Lake Visits Mary Mavec Opportunity School

What better way to spread some Halloween cheer, but to visit with neighbors! The seventh graders of Our Lady of the Lake did just that. The students walked down Lakeshore Boulevard to Mary Mavec Opportunity School in order to play some Halloween games and make a craft. The afternoon was filled with fun and laughter for everyone who was involved with the day.

A key objective in the religion curriculum for seventh graders is to offer service to others. The Our Lady of the Lake seventh graders did this by working hard in class to develop different Halloween activities that they could share with the Mary Mavec community. Some students created “Goblin Bowling” which was made out of recycled materials. There were also Halloween word games and guessing games too. One group of students even made many individual crafts, such as pumpkins, witches, and ghosts to help the clients put together. Still another group, created a Halloween version of the game Candy Land.  

The students were not only performing an act of service, but they had fun doing it. In fact, the seventh graders are already planning for the holidays!
