On Monday St. Malachy teachers cleaned the Creston Food Pantry.  This was part of our service project for our Faith Journey program this school year.  Teachers also spent time studying assessment data and ELP modules.  It was a good day of learning and helping those in need.

Our STM middle school students are at the Captiol today at a school choice education rally.  Students also got to tour the Supreme Court building!
