Students reach out to Japan

Students at Star of the Sea Catholic School used paper cranes to raise $350 for relief efforts in Japan last week.

The school’s environment/outreach club made the origami birds as a symbol to pray for the survivors of the disaster and remember those who died. Last Friday, students who made donations to the cause had their names written on cranes that were displayed in the school’s foyer.

Funds raised go to the Catholic Organization for Development and Peace.
