Palmer Trinity School’s PTS Cares Club hosted its fifth annual holiday party for the more than 250 residents of Chapman Partnership’s South Family Resource Center in Homestead.
More than 25 Palmer Trinity student and parent volunteers helped kick off the holiday season for these families. Highlights included a visit from Santa Claus who took time out of his busy schedule to visit the children, take photos, and read a Christmas story. He also did magic tricks and showed the children how he makes snow from a little bit he brought from the North Pole.
“Our school has been working closely with Chapman for the past 23 years. The ethos at Palmer Trinity is one of caring and thoughtfulness for our local community.,” said Susana Cetta, director of Student Activities.
“We work hard to instill this in students and this year’s club members are some of the most giving, thoughtful and creative students I’ve had the opportunity to work alongside. They have genuine gratitude and work hard to create fun activities that promote dignity and respect for all. I’m especially going to miss our seniors next year,” Cetta added.
In addition, students set up fun arts and crafts activities for the children and the school’s Music Club students provided musical entertainment during the event. The Lombardo family, of Mamma Mia Italian Restaurant, generously provided a delicious Italian dinner for the fifth year in a row.
PTS Cares Club is one of Palmer Trinity’s 58 student clubs that participate in joyful giving with an emphasis on those closest to them — their neighbors. For more information about Palmer Trinity School and its clubs and student organizations, contact Susana Cetta at email@example.com.
