Highlights of our Community Partners
Since 2008, the parishioners of the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart have been making teachers’ wishes come true. At Christmas time, Cathedral members provide dozens of gifts from the school’s wish tree; everything from Mason jars and magnets to hula hoops and paint. The materials are invaluable to our teachers and students.
The Bon Secours Memorial College of Nursing staff and faculty provides health screenings for all students and TB readings and CPR/First Aid training for our faculty.
The Knights of Columbus provide work days and in 2015, they provided a regal honor guard procession for our eighth grade graduation.
Foster Grandparents Program provide seniors to assist in classrooms by reading to small groups, helping students complete class work and learn math facts.
The University of Richmond has worked to collaborate in several ways. Last fall, Dr. Ronald Crutcher, President of U of R, spoke to students during an assembly and even brought cookies for everyone. Last spring, two students from the Spanish Community-Based Learning Program shared the traveling museum, The Museo Ambulante, with seventh and eighth grade students. Additionally, two U of R bilingual volunteers tutored All Saints students two days a week. This year, two tutors from the school work with middle school students in language arts and math. Finally, thanks to connections made through the Bonner Center for Civic Engagement, All Saints’ entire middle school was able to participate in the Challenge Discovery.
The University of Notre Dame’s Richmond Alumni Club has been a regular supporter for years. They can be seen at summer work days painting, cleaning and preparing the school. In 2016, the school and Club co-hosted the Hesburgh Lecture by Brian S. Collier, Ph.D., “Save Our Schools, Save Our Country, and Save Your Family.” In 2015, they arranged visits from the Notre Dame Glee Club and from Mike McCoy, award-winning defensive player for the Green Bay Packers and Notre Dame. The University’s ACE (Alliance for Catholic Education) program provides graduate students for two years to teach at All Saints.
