On Oc­to­ber 31, Villa Maria Academy hosted its an­nual Mis­sion Day event. Mis­sion Day is a tra­di­tion at Villa Maria Academy where the eighth graders host a cel­e­bra­tion on Hal­loween to raise money in sup­port of a lo­cal char­ity. This year, Mis­sion Day raised $2,150 from the sup­port of stu­dents and their fam­i­lies.

Dur­ing Mis­sion Day, the eighth grade stu­dents dress in cos­tume based on the theme of the event, host games, of­fer face paint­ing, sto­ries, karaoke and prizes at the gift walk. The funds col­lected from the event will go to ben­e­fit a lo­cal char­ity that will be cho­sen by the eighth grade stu­dents and their teach­ers. Canned goods were also col­lected for the needy as each child’s en­trance fee into Mis­sion Day.

Mis­sion Day is just one of many ways Villa Maria Academy is com­mit­ted to em­pow­er­ing young women to give back and as­sume roles in their lo­cal com­mu­nity.
