One of the most rewarding aspects of the holiday season is the increased attention and care that’s given to our communities, especially to those in need.
That’s why The O’Farrell Charter School is dedicated to giving back to the community – and to its families – in many ways.
“During the holiday season, reaching out and giving to others helps our students understand they’re part of a larger community,” said Anne Mathews, The O’Farrell Charter School’s principal. “They recognize that their acts of kindness help others.”
There are numerous ways in which OCS students can get involved with helping their community, from participating in the holiday canned food drive to buddying up with younger classmates to make gifts for family members.
