This fall, St. Thomas the Apostle had the pleasure of hosting Lend a Shoulder Day, an annual event led by Chicago’s Big Shoulders Fund. Lend a Shoulder Day, now in its 16th year, was designed to celebrate student achievement and to allow business and civic leaders to see first-hand how Catholic schools like STA are enlightening minds and brightening the lives of children in their communities. It was also an opportunity for students to engage with many of the supporters who help fund Big Shoulders programs for the benefit of schools in the Archdiocese of Chicago, including St. Thomas the Apostle. Lend a Shoulder Day activities featured interactive science experiments in our newly renovated science lab, creative art projects, and math games for everyone to enjoy!
