Painting of Hesse School by Carol Wheaton.
Since 2019, our annual Angel Tree gift-giving ministry has adopted 22 Hesse School resource teachers -- music, art, gym, media, gifted, ESOL and more. These educators reach a majority of the nearly 1000 K-8 students at our neighborhood public school. We fulfill each teacher’s wish list and wrap and deliver what they want for their classrooms – from hand sanitizer, pencils and notebooks to headsets and digital cameras. In addition, parishioners have helped a kindergarten teacher outfit her classroom, have mentored students and said “yes” to being substitute grandparents. More initiatives at Hesse School are on the horizon.
