photo from St. Elizabeth students attending fire victim's memorial

Within a few short days of the tragic fire in the Ghost Ship warehouse in Oakland, the children of St. Elizabeth responded as good neighbors should.

With the Ghost Ship being only three blocks from the school, more than 70 sixth and seventh graders walked to the site of the memorials left by many people and added their own handmade cards. It was a moment of learning and reaching out to those in pain.

The visit was organized by Principal Deline Easterday and teachers.
