Students from Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic School recently hosted a Christmas party at Breckenridge Retirement Center.
The elementary and middle school students sang Christmas carols and songs from their annual school Christmas program. They were accompanied on piano by Gabbi Brys-Wilson, a second-grader at the school. Students served hot cocoa and donuts, danced and enjoyed fellowship with the Breckenridge residents.
The event was planned by the Brys-Wilson siblings who are students at Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Gabbi, second grade, Genevie, first grade, and Gracie, pre-k, wanted to do something special for their friends at Breckenridge this holiday season. They came up with the idea and organized the day’s festivities on their own.
With the assistance of the school’s principal, Julie Love, the sisters recruited friends from their school to help spread holiday cheer. Nearly 20 students and their families came out to help celebrate Christmas and make friends with the Breckenridge residents.
Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic School provides a strong academic Catholic education based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. It encourages acts of service and is thrilled to see its students making a difference in the community.
