Community Service

St. Paul’s Episcopal School is committed to encouraging our students to take action in the community. Several community service projects are scheduled yearly to involve students in a variety of ways to serve.

Operation Christmas Child

Each year, students bring shoeboxes filled with goodies for boys and girls around the world who may not be receiving presents during the Christmas holiday. Students are encouraged to think about things that they would want to receive and to choose these items to fill their boxes.

Food For Families

Food For Families, the largest one-day food drive in Texas is held each year on the Friday before Thanksgiving. During the month of November, St. Paul’s students bring non-perishable food items to donate to the local food banks. The sixth grade class sets a goal for the amount of pounds we hope to bring in and keeps track of the totals as they come in. On the collection day, the sixth graders take the food the St. Paul’s students brought and then spend a couple of hours helping to sort and box items brough in by other groups.

Christmas Caroling in the Community

During the holiday season, St. Paul’s students prepare songs to bring a message of hope and joy into the lives of people in the Waco community. Groups of students sing at Junior League’s Deck the Halls, City Hall, Spice, and the Courthouse. 

Recycling Efforts 

St. Paul’s School is taking the initiative to go green. Each classroom has a collection box for paper and plastics and students help bring those to a central recycling area in the school.
