Chapel Program

America's Grow a Row

AGARAGAR2

Throughout the year Crossroads students participate in a weekly chapel program, part of which is dedicated to recognizing and raising support for a nonprofit ministry. This year’s recipient was America’s Grow a Row, a local farm program that grows and provides fresh, healthy produce for those in need throughout New Jersey. At the end of the year, Crossroads Principal Dave Homa was pleased to present a check on behalf of all the Crossroads students to Founder and President, Chip Paillex, whose daughter Kyra is a Crossroads graduate.

But the relationship between Crossroads and Grow a Row goes well beyond chapel donations. For several years students from Crossroads at all grade levels have regularly helped with planting, cultivating and harvesting a number of different crops. Teachers use the outings to teach science lessons and enhance the character-building provided by this opportunity for community service, one of Crossroads’ Core Values. For the students, it’s a time of fresh air, good exercise and lots of fun.

“We have a lot of volunteers who help us out at the farm,” said Paillex. “But we are always particularly impressed with the hard work, reliability and good behavior demonstrated by Crossroads students. We know we can count on them.”
