On Feb. 2, Holy Family students celebrated Catholic Schools week by participating in some service activities sponsored by Holy Family Home and School. In the morning, some of Holy Family girls decided to get their hair cut at school to donate to children with cancer. Hannah LaPlante, Giuliana Ricchiuti, and Audrina Jablonski all donated their hair to a foundation called Children with Hair Loss. Their friends, family, and peers watched on as they had their long hair cut for a good cause. Professional hairstylists Rosalie Crawford and Carmelina Iamurri came to the school to also donate their services in cutting the hair.

In the afternoon, all students in grades K-8 participated in a corn hole competition. Each grade was given three minutes to get as many bean bags in the corn hole as possible. For each one made, $1 was going to be donated to Akron Children on behalf of Holy Family Students. In total, students and teachers got 661 bean bags in the corn holes. Kindergarten students came in first place with 167 points and eighth grade students came in second place with 85 points. Home and School Alliance rounded it to an even $1,000 to donate to Akron Children's.
