No Tricks, Just Treats
Fr. Jason invites you to stop past the rectory (504 Holly Hill Dr.) on the eve of All Saints (also known as Halloween) if you are out trick or treating. He prefers giving treats to being tricked though. There will be candy for all, but if you're dressed as a Catholic saint, there will be a WHOLE lot more in it for you. If you can tell him a little about your Catholic saint, he'll have a full-size candy bar just for you!

Holy Redeemer School Body Works
This fall, Holy Redeemer School sponsored a Health Fair designed to promote healthy lifestyle behaviors and choices for its students. The Holy Redeemer 7th and 8th grade students finished their last day of the grading term before Fall break, serving as tour guides of the human body for the younger students.
The Health Fair is called Body Walk, and the tour through the human body consists of eleven stations that include the brain, mouth, stomach, small intestine, heart, lungs, bones, muscles, and skin. Included within the tour is a station where each student is given a food tag. This tag follows the food as it travels through the body at each of the stations within the Walk. The tour concludes with a summary station, which reviews what the students have learned about the Human Body through their tour.
The seventh and eighth grade presenters were responsible for researching all information regarding the benefits of good nutrition and physical activity for overall health and wellness. Students were very creative in developing their stations, which ranged from crawling through the small intestine to using a pulse meter before and after exercise to determine exercise intensity. Additionally, the presenters created posters, along with models of the brain, heart and skeletal system. These added visual information to supplement the learning provided in the written scripts prepared by the students.
Pre-K through 6th grade progressed through each of the eleven body stations, spending five minutes per station. The younger students could refer to their food tag, whether they had a tag with a protein, a food that contained calcium, Vitamin C, grains etc. The younger students learned which foods were good for each part of the body, and what foods should be avoided. Ways to make their muscles and bones stronger and how to protect their skin were also demonstrated. Besides learning more about nutrition, physical activity, and how to keep the body parts healthy, our presenters practiced excellent public speaking skills and had the opportunity to learn through hands-on experiences.
