Imagine not having adequate shoes to run, play, and participate in sports. During our annual Lower School Missions Week, we're partnering with Access to Success (A2S) to help children in Nigeria get new or like-new athletic shoes that might not otherwise have a chance. Iffy and Eseosa, two students in Covenant Day's International Program, were recipients of new athletic shoes through A2S in Nigeria two years ago.
Photography students, seniors Lance Lokas, and Nick Bash recently had their photos chosen to be part of the Drexel University High School Photography Exhibition! Students from all over the United States entered their work in this prestigious exhibit, including over 2,100 photos from 771 individual students. Out of all of the submissions, only 267 students were accepted into the exhibition.
Since 2015, Covenant Day students have transformed three shipping containers to serve as emergency housing for those in need living on Pine Ridge Reservation through its initiative known as ContainIt. Their next endeavor might be smaller, but the impact is just as big. ContainIt students recently had a workday in Highpoint with Tiny House Development Corporation, a nonprofit organization that builds tiny houses for the homeless.
