Carlos knows how great it is to give.
An eighth grader at St. John Paul II Catholic Preparatory School, he gave the pair of I ❤ YOU mittens to his mom as a Christmas gift. He earned gold tokens with his saintly acts and behavior, and he used them to buy the gift at St. John Paul Prep’s Saint Store.
The Saint Store is operated by volunteers and stocked with purchased and donated items. Scholars are rewarded for following rules, treating others with kindness and being considerate. Teachers love having this as an incentive tool. Kids love to buy gifts for parents and siblings, as well as items for themselves such as clothing, shoes and snacks. The shelves are stocked with items from rosaries and Play-Doh to soccer balls and Legos!
