For the final all-school service project of the year, High Point Academy is participating in the Birthday Box Project, which provides a box of materials necessary for throwing a child’s birthday party to homeless parents in the Los Angeles area.
The goal is for each class to create two boxes, one for each gender. The boxes should reflect the age range of each class. The school will generate 36 boxes this way, covering kids ages 5-14. Today, is the kick-off for the event, and HPA will be collecting items through next Friday, April 18. Each class will organize how items will be collected, so watch for an email from every child’s teacher or room-parent with
High Point Academy, 1720 Kinneloa Canyon Road, Pasadena, (626) 798-8989 or visit www.highpointacademy.org.
