As members of Villa Academy, we are truly fortunate to have such a caring and compassionate community. It is a blessing to be able to share this special gift with the greater community by extending our support to those who find themselves alone or in need this time of year.
With Christmas on its way, Villa Academy is finding the holiday spirit by participating in a variety of service projects and lending a hand to folks who could use a little extra help this season. From preparing holiday craft kits for the patients at Children’s Hospital to collecting clothes and toys for family-aid organizations, Villa students of all ages are celebrating the joy of Christmas by giving to others.
What students have been up to lately:
- The season of giving got a kick-start this November as sixth grade students led the annual all-school Thanksgiving Food Drive, collecting over 50 boxes of food and toiletries for donation to St. Vincent de Paul.
- Sixth graders rolled up their sleeves again – this time, to avoid getting sticky and to help the St. Francis House by preparing individually wrapped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the hungry.
- Villa Girl Scouts recently warmed our hearts as they worked hard to help keep families at the St. Francis House warm by hosting a coat drive. The inspiring shouts you may have heard at morning crosswalk paid off with a total collection of 400 coats!
- Middle School religion classes helped spread a little Christmas cheer by making holiday decoration to help brighten the halls and the spirits of Providence Regina House families.
- Preschool and Kindergarten students have been working hard to decorate their mitten trees and a garland of gloves. Even the littlest hands here at Villa are making a big difference by donating these mittens and gloves to families in need at Seattle’s First Place School and the Ronald McDonald House.
- Today, our second grade students personally delivered 200 craft kits for young patients at Children’s Hospital. Each handmade craft kit will provide a little holiday entertainment for a hospitalized child this season.
- And, in the final week before Christmas vacation, student council will be wrapping up their Adopt-a-Family gift drive, by wrapping and labeling presents donated by each grade level to the Providence Regina House.

Over half of children don’t get the sleep they need each night, which has an enormous impact on their emotional intelligence, cognitive abilities, and physical coordination. All of this impairs their school performance, interferes with mood, and increases their risk of obesity. Catherine Darley, ND from The Institute of Naturopathic Sleep Medicine, will cover how sleep impacts children, red flags of sleep problems, and how to help your children get healthy sleep. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
This event is free, open to the public and for parents of children age 3-14. Childcare will not be provided.
Congruent with their theme of “children helping children,” the Villa Preschool has chosen to support Seattle’s First Place School through their annual Mitten Tree Project.
First Place is both a elementary school and social service agency devoted to serving low-income families struggling with trauma, including homelessness, mental illness, domestic violence, and drug abuse.
Families are invited to donate new mittens, gloves, hats, socks, scarves and/or gift certificates. Donation can be brought to school through December 9th.
Garland of Gloves (hosted by Kindergarten)
Kindergarten will be supporting the Ronald McDonald House by creating a heartfelt Garland of Gloves. The Ronald McDonald House is a home away from home for families who have children receiving treatment at Seattle Children’s Hospital.
Beginning Monday, December 5th and running through December 9th, kindergarten will be collecting new gloves, hats, mittens, and scarves of all sizes to keep these families warm during the winter months.
